Hi, I am currently building a "web application" and what I'm trying to do, might just not be possible or it's a limitation of my knowledge of Formidable forms and not being a developer! I have a form, where I want put in the following information

Supplier Name, Address, Telephone - easy so far.

 

The next bit is where I'm getting into a muddle. I have a list of materials (setup in a separate table) I want to be able to select those materials and then put a selling price associated to that material for that supplier.

e.g.

Supplier 1 Contact Details

Material 1 Checked  £20

Material 2 Unchecked

Material 3 Checked £25  

 

My next step would then to be create a view showing the Suppliers, Materials and Pricing. Is this possible or am I being overly ambitious.   Thank you    Dominic

"I have a list of materials (setup in a separate table" Are the material prices in this table as well?

Victor,

Thank you for responding.

So, I want to use that list to add different prices for those materials, for each supplier. The reason for having the materials in a list, is so we can update the list of materials.

I think your best bet is to use a repeater field. Use a dynamic lookup and empty field for the price. I like dynamic fields because of their flexibility to display lookup details. Here are a couple of Formidable KnowledgeBase articles that can help:
