    I need everything to go to the shopping cart, and I just can't seem to figure out how?
    It looks possible?
    I have spent 16 hours working on this with no luck.

    I have 2 dropdown menus and a place where the customer enters their size as 2 numbers, W x L and this is calculated and the total entered as the price for this item.
    I have an excel spreadsheet calculated this and converted it to a web document, the calculator works, the dropdowns work, but the submit only submits the product name, no price no options.
    It would also be awesome if I could have the first drop downs selection change the calculation for the price result?

    Here is the page: http://www.easykitchencabinets.com/flatpaneldoor.htm
    The calculation isn't working online, but it works locally on my machine?

    Thanks!

    Hello again,

    I still haven't figured this out yet.
    The product goes to the cart, and all the functions work in IE, but the calculator does not work in Firefox.
    I did see there is a way to have the drop down items go into the cart page, but not the price from a user input?

    Thanks again, Angelmyst

    You can use this here I think to do what you need to do.

    Thanks JameyLynn

    This will work for the selection boxes.
    Now I just need the calculated price to be entered in the cart.
    I may need to recode the whole page....?


    thanks again

    That form does the calculating for you. If you look at the source code, you will see it there. That form does send the calculated price to the cart.
