# Confused - Could be simple?

Hello,

New to AT community and hope to find help. This could be extremely simple but not sure how this field needs to be coded.

Column needing help = “Monthly Fee”

As shown in the fee section, is there a way to assign a value to each selected fee? For example, Exempt = \$0, Forewarn =\$5, Admin =\$10? Therefore once any combination of those fees are selected it populates a total in the Monthly Fee section?
Assume the Monthly Fee section needs to be a formula but not sure which formula it needs to be or how to do it?

Thanks so much!

Hi and welcome @Shawn_Ryken!
I would suggest making {Monthly Fee} a formula field and use a SWITCH()-formula in it.

``````SWITCH({Fees},
'Exempt','\$0',
'Forewarn','\$5',
)
``````

If you’re going to use the output in another field I would recommend to leave out the dollar sign in your SWITCH()-formula.

You can find a realy handy formula field reference guide here for future use.

EDITED: Sorry, I was too fast to post / too fast reading, so I missed that it’s a multiple select field.
I’ll update with an answer in a bit.

Okay, this is maybe not all that elegant, but it does what you’re asking for.

`IF(FIND('Exempt',{Fees}),'0')+IF(FIND('Forewarn',{Fees}),'5')+IF(FIND('Admin',{Fees}),'10')`
