    first post, so apologies for any mistakes.

    great plugin and if i Manage to get it working I will consider buy the PRO version (especially if it offers a calendar-screen option).

    This question is in reference with the Calculation_with_Dates form.

    I am trying to use this plugin for a small family-run B&B website and I would like to give clients the option to choose/select a room type, (Dorm Bed, Single, Double, etc.) before getting an estimate (which by default is calculated as 50$).

    Of course, each room has a different prize so I added as many 'calculated fields' as needed in the form, each one with this formula:
    abs(fieldname2-fieldname1) * (fieldname3+20)
    abs(fieldname2-fieldname1) * (fieldname3+30)
    abs(fieldname2-fieldname1) * (fieldname3+40).

    Then, in the 'check-box field setting', under the 'show dependencies' link, I added the
    Choices help? Hide Dependencies
    Text: Dorm Value: Dorm
    If selected show: Dorm (from the drop down list).

    So far so good! I refresh the form (running in my localhost server) and for every checkbox I tick the right calculated field shows up; however, after selecting the dates, and possibly even any/all the optional services, I get not value! It remains blank.

    The only way to have the calculated field to return its correct amount is if I DO NOT select:
    Choices help? Hide Dependencies
    Text: Dorm Value: Dorm
    If selected show: (blank)

    What am i missing?

    I would have added screenshots to better explain myself, but I didn't find such option in this forum page.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    The answer was: Dumb!
    I worked it out. It was a formula problem.

    abs(fieldname2-fieldname1) * (fieldname3 + fieldname10)

    where (fieldname10) is the value I assigned to each individual room (checkbox setting)
