    Can't get my calculation to work!

    Asked by GSNYPENN on November 29, 2016 at 01:16 PM


    I love this tool!

    I seem to be misconfiguring a field -- could use more advice!

    I would like to take the total number of registrants and multiply them by $10 to come up with a total.

    I've tried a few different calculations 


    (Girls + Adults) * 10 = total


    Then I tried adding girls & adults for a total (which works) and tried to use that calculated field 


    Total attendees *10 = total

    But my real total -- e.g. 3 * 10 = $30 doesn't appear correctly.


    Please advice!

    You calculation is not working correctly because of the dollar sign that you have added in front of 10. 

    Remove that dollar sign and add it in front of calculation if you want to show price in dollars.
