    Share calculation values between matrices?

    Asked by dsawant on August 30, 2016 at 10:37 AM


      Is there a way to compare and share value between matrices?

    Suppose matrix1 returns a calculated value of 1, matrix2 returns a calculated value of 2 etc..


    Can I use these two returned values and do another calculation?

    Is this possible using JotForm


    Thanks & Regards

    I am not sure if I understood your question correctly. Do you want to perform calculation based on values from two different matrix tables. That is possible to achieve. Inside of this guide you can find how to perform form calculation in the Matrix field:


    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/62425310189957 

    Feel free to test it and clone it

    You can also check this guide: 


    If I did not understood your question correctly, please explain in more details what you are trying to achieve and also provide us ID of the form you are working on.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Gotcha!! Thanks for your help Joanna..

    The add field button on the calculator shows all the possible values that exists on a form. So you can just pick any and start calculating.

    Yes that is correct, you can also perform calculations using conditional logic. Here's a guide that you can refer to: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Mathematical-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic
