In Form Maker Pro to add a calculation you should already have at least one digit-only or currency field (only such fields can be used as variables). Also, the calculation field cannot appear on the same page with its parameters; only on pages after that (usually on preview). For example, if you have digit-only fields "a" and "b" on the first form page, the second page may contain a calculation a+b (its result can be shown directly on the page, or entered in a hidden field value without displaying).

To make a calculation, open a page where you plan to insert it, and click ADD CALCULATION in the right side of the page. Then you should name this calculation and compose the formula in the textarea, clicking on variables to insert them and using signs +, -, *, / and brackets. Then you click Submit and see the list of calculation on the right side of form editing page updated with the fresh added calculation.

Now you need to add the calculation from the list to the form on certain position. Click CALCULATION on the left side of the page, and select one of positions "Insert new form field here" which are situated before, after and between the fields. Here you can write a title to display, select a calculation from the dropdown list and press Submit. This returns you to the form editing page where you can click Save to save the newly made changes.

After all you will be able to add calculation fields (like any other fields) to email or log templates.
