Hi all and thanks in advance for your help

I am looking to create an account page to match up sums
<tr>
	<td align=center><input type="checkbox" name="transID"></td>
	<td><a href=?account=2&transaction=672>22/04/2016</a></td>
	<td>SureSave Account</td><td>Comm return</td><td align=right><input type='text' size=10 name='debitamount' value=-$63.00></td><td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td align=center><input type="checkbox" name="transID"></td>
	<td><a href=?account=2&transaction=618>28/04/2016</a></td>
	<td>Air Tickets Account</td><td></td><td align=right><input type='text' size=10 name='debitamount' value=$1,471.24></td><td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td align=center><input type="checkbox" name="transID"></td>
	<td><a href=?account=2&transaction=701>29/04/2016</a></td>
	<td>SureSave Account</td><td>Comm return</td><td align=right><input type='text' size=10 name='debitamount' value=-$45.60></td><td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td align=center><input type="checkbox" name="transID"></td>
	<td><a href=?account=2&transaction=621>2/05/2016</a></td>
	<td>Air Tickets Account</td><td></td><td align=right><input type='text' size=10 name='debitamount' value=$262.54></td><td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td align=center><input type="checkbox" name="transID"></td>
	<td><a href=?account=2&transaction=622>2/05/2016</a></td>
	<td>Air Tickets Account</td><td></td><td align=right><input type='text' size=10 name='debitamount' value=$262.54></td><td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td align=center><input type="checkbox" name="transID"></td>
	<td><a href=?account=2&transaction=662>5/05/2016</a></td>
	<td>Commission Transfer</td><td> </td><td align=right><input type='text' size=10 name='debitamount' value=$33.31></td><td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td colspan=4>TOTALS</td>
	<td align=right><input type="text" name="debittotal" size=10></td>
	<td align=right><input type="text" name="credittotal" size=10></td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td colspan=4>Recon Amount</td>
	<td align=right><input type="text" name="amounttorecon" size=10></td>
	<td align=right><input type="text" name="totalrecon" size=10 placeholder="Total Recon Amount" disabled</td>
</tr>

Open in new window


So I would like the checked amounts to autosum into either debittotal or credittotal (which ever side they are)

Then it will sum to totalrecon

Cheers

Hi Big Monty, what I have so far is just the layout for what I want, nothing else (code above)

Add a class name to each of your individual text box that you want to add. Call it "addUp". Then, you could use the following jquery to add up each of those text boxes:

$(document).on("change", ".addUp", function() {
    var sum = 0;
    $(".addUp").each(function(){
        sum += +$(this).val();
    });
    $("#totalrecon").val(sum);
});

Open in new window


I don't really understand what " to autosum into either debittotal or credittotal (which ever side they are)" means, so let's skip that part for now. Put in the code above, see if you can get that working, then report back.

jsFiddle is a site where you can write out html / javascript all on the same page and allow others to view and run it. Essentially it'll allow for us to collaborate together on the code

give this a shot:

https://jsfiddle.net/bigmonty/kkna3mxq/4/

I want you to take note of the HTML changes I made, mainly how I added ID's to each checkbox and textbox. Also, please get in the habit of surrounding your attributes VALUE tags with quotes. If you don't do that, you run the risk of mal-formed HTML, which'll give you major headaches!
