    I have a table of data and want to use different values in a calculation dependant on a selection by the user. For example if they choose option 1, I want to use the values in column A to calculate and output. Is this possible?

    I am assuming, you would like the Google Spreadsheet Integration to work in a reverse manner where the information is not sent to the spreadsheet but pulled from the sheet and displayed on your form according to the option selected by the user. I tried to find-out similar widget, but unfortunately that is not possible.

    As an alternate, you can prepopulate Fields to Your JotForm via URL Parameters. And then can do calculation on your form.

    While the Import Data App  will allow you to import submission data into the form coming from other data sources like Excel or CSV file.

    You can also check our spreadsheet widget . In spreadsheet widget, you can assign calculation formulas to designated cells through the widget configuration.

    If you have any query, or need further assistance, feel free to revert back.

    I have looked at the spreadsheet widget but you don't seem to be able to use any of the products of any calculation for anything else. I think I have made it work by using a lot of conditions!

    I am also trying to make a list where if one thing is selected by the user (an event) another coresponding value is displayed in a separate box (the code for that event). Can you help?
