    $cost =0; // cost of single optional
    $prezzo=0; // total cost of rental
    $gg ={giorni}; // days of rental
    $opt1 ={optionals}; // optional chosen

    sc_lookup(dataset,"SELECT cost,item,type FROM Optionals WHERE id = $opt1");
    $cost = {dataset[0][0]};
    $item = {dataset[0][1]};
    $type = {dataset[0][2]};

    if ($type == 'F')
    {$prezzo = $cost;}
    if ($type == 'D')
    {$prezzo = ($cost*$gg);}

    {$item} = $prezzo; // this line should assign the value in a field in the form the field has the same name of the value of item in the optionals table

    To address a field on the form you must not use a $. So valid code would be {item}=$prezzo;
