    In trying to learn Tap Forms, I thought this request sounded interesting. I realize that any need is long gone, but I figured I’d play with it anyway and post my solution for other people who might be looking for something similar.

    There are probably mistakes (vaguely tested) and things that should have been done differently. Feel free to correct things and post a better version.

    Not too sure what happened to my reply, so I’ll repost. I just got Tap Forms and am playing around with it and this request, although long deprecated, was an interesting challenge. Here’s my solution. (2mb – it’s an archive with demo data and help table).

    The data schema is attached here and shows the one-to-many relationships in use.

    The calculation update is in one monolithic script and I’m now playing with record-level script fields.
