It took me a while to figure out how to use this, but I do see the
issue. I entered some info for Solid Timber Boards and Timber Engineered
Boards, coming up with differences of $34 and $40 respectively. Somehow
the summary table shows -176 as the supposed total (?!).

It seems that the sum function isn't working right for forms, or that
there is something about the identification of the fields that is awry.

You might tackle this by trimming down this form to just a few tables
and see if you can get it working. In the short term, you may just need
to manually calculate this one field from the various differences. It
seems that the Total Quoted Price comes out Ok for some reason.
