Editing the way the total is calculated

    Hi there

    I am creating a form for a conference quotation. The total cost of the conference is "full day conference, qty: multiplied by the number of delegates attending.

    Number field: Number of delegates

    I am using product fields for the following:

    *Full Day conference
    *Half Day conference

    Number fields:

    Total Cost Full Day: (Full Day conference x number of delegates)
    Total Cost Half Day: (Half Day conference x number of delegates)

    This is working great, however the "total" field (from product options), it calculating the qty of full day conferences x unit price, and also qty of half day conference x unit price)

    i need the total field to calculate as follows:

    Full day conference x number of delegates + half day conference x number of delegates.

    I hope i am explaining correctly... here is a link to my form, which also includes a "total" field (by using a number block with calculations to show how the pricing field "total" needs to be calculated.

    I just moved away from using "product fields" and used number fields with custom calculations

  4. But that only gives you numbers rather than prices? Maybe there's some way to customise number fields so that they look like prices?

    I just want something pretty simple; product quantity, price each and then price total for that one product.

    What seemed like something simple i actually turning out to be a right pain in the arse! :-(

    You can use Product Calculation fields to do what you want. Add a product calculation field, and then create your calculation from there based on user selections. You will then be able to, using merge tags and bedmas math, do Full day conference x number of delegates + half day conference x number of delegates.
