I need to calculate a number based on selected single select option in another field.

For instance if the users chooses “Excellent” then the number should be 10, if the users chooses “Good”, then the number shoud be 7, if the users chooses “Fair”, then the number should 5, if the users chooses “Poor”, then the number should be 3, other wise it should be blank.

It so that I can then tally the score of nine different fields for a total score.

Suggestions?? Formula? I’m fairly new to Airtable and I’ve trid numerous formulas toget this to happen an so far have failed.

Thanks to Kamille for the formula
SWITCH(
{GRAVEL LAYER RATING},
“EXCELLENT”, 10,
“GOOD”, 7,
“FAIR”, 5,
“DEFICIENT”, 3
)

Though I’m still trying to figure out why “Excellent” and “Fair” don’t generate a number.

OMG! There was an extra space after the ord in the Single Select option… once I got rid of the extra space, the formula worked perfectly!

Thank you!
