Technical Article – Calculate the total through RuleSet actions

Microsoft Office InfoPath allows you to set a formula as the value of a field with the help of which you can calculate the sum of a column of the repeating table and display that sum in a new field. If you load the InfoPath form in Aspose.Form for .NET you’ll find that we don’t support that feature yet. Don’t let that stop you – we have a work around. Aspose.Form for .NET allows you to do the same thing using RuleSet actions.
