Options for calculating currency fields - no pricing table

  1. Short version: Is there any way to have a form that will allow for multiple fields that reflect currency (i.e., have a dollar sign and decimal point), that will calculate these fields, display a total, and then process to PayPal BUT have the notification email NOT show these fields as a order table, but rather list each pricing field separately?

    Detailed version:
    We want our form to be like this:
    Donation Amount [price or number field]
    In the name of [text field]

    Donation Amount 2 [price or number field]
    In the name of [text field]
    (and so on - 10 of these fields)

    TOTAL DONATIONS: [calculate all amounts above]

    Submit goes to PayPal
    But then in the Admin Notification, we want the EMAIL send to admins to show the same way:
    Amount of donation: $50.00
    In the name of: John Doe

    Amount of donation 2: $30.00
    In the name of: Jane Doe

    Total Donation Amount: $80.00

    It seems that pricing fields are the only way to have the currency (dollar sign, decimal) and go to PayPal.... using number fields instead of pricing fields, I can lay out the notification the way I want, but don't have the currency formatting, or ability to submit to PayPal. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I hope I explained that correctly!

  2. Sorry for the bump... but does anyone have any suggestions here? I've spent too many hours now trying to do a work-around, if there really is no other option at least then I will know to give up. :)

    EDIT: Sorry, saw that you're down a support person and that you try to reply in 48 hours. I will be patient. This has just been a puzzle that's become a mission for me to figure out. :)

  3. Chalk this one up to being new to Gravity Forms... I found the solution, and yes, it was ridiculously easy, I was thinking way too hard. I don't see a way to delete or close this thread, but it is resolved!
