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.
