I needed to do something similar and the folks at Crosstec were kind enough to help me so I will pass it on.I wanted to add 2 fields together and add the total to be passed on as the amount for the Paypal button submission.
Create a Hidden field called PayPalSelect.
Create a Summarize field to total the fields you want totaled. (I think there are videos that illustrate how to do both these tasks)
On the Summarize field, in the Advanced section in the Calculate box, put something like this:
value = (value + bfField("children");
ff_getElementByName("PayPalSelect").value = "registration|300|"+value+"|0";

'children' is the name of the field to add to whatever you connect with in the Properties section of the summarize field
'registration' is the item name of the paypal button
'300' is the item number of the paypal button
I hope this helps.

Hey, I was looking for this hint for hours - but you just had a "(" too much after the "=", thats why your code did not work, until I found out why. it should just be like this:

value = value + bfField("children");
ff_getElementByName("PayPalSelect").value = "anytextyouwanttoappearinpaypal|1|"+value+"|0";

I'm trying to have a simple drop down with prices, (ex: $25, $50, $100) and then pass that on to paypal but I"m striking out no matter what I try. I have looked at the forum and sample code but still managed to screw it up. I get a howmany error. What is the simnplest code to have a select list with pricing sent to paypal? What I would like to do is have the user select a price from a select list and then click the paypal button to pay.
