How do I allow checked checkboxes in Acrobat to add to a grand total?

Hi everyone,

 

First time posting here and a relative novice with Acrobat.

I'm desinging an options page for a vehicle manufacturer. The page will list roughly twenty options, with the description in one column, followed by the price of each option and then a checkbox, which is checked by the customer if they'd like that option added to their car.

What I'd like to achieve, is that if say, eight of the twenty options are 'ticked' using their respective checkboxes, the sum of these options to appear as a Grand Total. 

How do I get Acrobat to pull the cost of these options into a calculation to save the manufacturer calculating the cost manually?

Any advice would be superb, thank you!

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

Set price as export value for each checkbox, then use the built-in function in the grand total field to sum checkboxes.

Hi Nesa,

Thank you for the response, unfortunately when I say 'novice', I'm being literal!

Could you go into a bit more detail? Thank you!

In each checkbox under 'Options' tab there is an export value, enter price as export value, so for example if price for that choice is $20 you set export value to 20.

Now when you finish adding prices as export values go to grand total field, select 'Calculate' tab and select 'Value is the' select (Sum+) next to it (it should be selected by default) then click on 'Pick' and select your checkboxes.

That should be it, now when you check the checkbox it should add the price for that choice to the grand total.
