The first step is to have the Subtotal or Total field value in the Order Form. Normally this would be a currency field or decimal field if you need to consider 1 or more decimals into your calculations. If not you can also set it the field as a Numeric value field. Our example uses a currency field.

Second you need to think about the places where the script to aggregate the rows needs to occur. in our case there are several places. On Add Row, On Selecting a new Product, On Changing the Qty amount or the pricing. Its important that all scenarios are considered otherwise your calculations may not be properly aggregated if it encounters a scenario that you have not considered in your scripting yet.

To build a robust Order form in zoho creator you need to be able to automatically "fetch" the information about a product and let the system pre populate the subform with pre existing data in the Products Table.

First, you need to have a Products form with all the relevant information about the Product. Price, Description, etc.

Second, you  need to fetch the Product information based "On user input" inside the items Subform and add the below deluge scripting.

row.Description = prodct.Description;
row.Price = prodct.Price;
row.Qty = 1;
if ((row.Price  !=  null)  &&  (row.Qty  !=  null))

The objective of this blog/video is to provide a complete example on how to fetch data from one table into another in Zoho Creator. The first thing that we're going to do is create a new table. So just for the sake of an example, we're going to have "visitors" in our data, and then we're going to create a new menu tab about the visitor.

You want to know its "name" and then, let's do an "email" field, a quick "email" field there and a "phone number". Then we're going to create an additional form and let's call this appointments. And I'll just create it under the tab "visitors" so that both tables are within the same place.

For appointments, we want to pick a visitor so we drag a look-up field. Notice how I chose the look-up field? then, we're ...

The sequence to execute the logic you are looking to accomplish is exactly as adding a script on a regular form.  On Add, On Delete, On User Input, but there is a subtle difference in the code and there is also a different way to embed the script into a subform, so lets tackle the way we embed the script.
On a regular form we have several options: Script Builder, Free Flow and Form Definition; where you can actually write the code manually if you know what you are doing. Inside a subform there is NO Script Builder that would guide you through the options of data you can access and a user is left with writing the code manually on a Free Flow approach style. The solution is to write the code using the Script Builder on a regular form save...
