    How to calculate total of cells in Configurable List widget

    Asked by lwilkerson2503 on September 26, 2016 at 10:45 PM
    . I would also like to be able to total all cells in the Price column in the Sub Total field. Is that possible?

    Unfortunately the Configurable List widget is not capable of using calculation. So it is not possible to calculate total using the values/numbers in the configurable list cells.

    It is possible if using the Matrix table field instead.

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

    Thank you Jonathan for your help! I have replaced my previous list widget with the matrix table field and have setup the calculations. Here's a link to my new form, https://form.jotform.com/62705323797159. However, now I'm stuck because the columns are not wide enough. Is there a way to change this? I tried using the design tool and CSS helper with no luck.

    Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
