Hi again!
So, I said in an earlier post, I have a small CBD distribution business.
We sell retail but we also sell to stores that re-sell the product… I’d like to be able to have multiple prices for every product i.e. retail price, wholesale price 1, wholesale price 2… I’m stuck…

Anyone out there who can help me out?

Thanks!

Is there a way you can show me through a link?

I’m tied up today, but will try to walk through the steps for this tomorrow (unless someone else beats me to it)

You’re too kind :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: Thanks a bunch!

I don’t have time to build a screenshot demo, but here’s the best verbal rundown I can offer in the meantime

Long story short: you don’t put a formula in a Single Select field. You add a formula field that reads the value in the Single Select field, and outputs the values from one of the Lookup fields based on what’s in the Single Select.

Slightly more detailed: your Single Select field contains text representing the type of price you want to apply for a given product in a given order; i.e. Retail, Wholesale 1, Wholesale 2, etc. I’ll call this field {Price Type}.

You have a {Product} link field where you link to a product from your [Products] table.

You then have lookup fields that pull in those different prices based on what product is linked; i.e. you’ll have a lookup field named {Retail} that looks up the retail price for the linked product, another one named {Wholesale 1} to pull in that price, etc. Once created, all of these fields would be hidden, and only referenced via the formula.

In your formula field (named something like {Unit Price}), you have this formula:

SWITCH(
    {Price Type},
    "Retail", Retail,
    "Wholesale 1", {Wholesale 1},
    "Wholesale 2", {Wholesale 2}
)

If you have more than three options, this would obviously be a larger formula. But in the end, your choice in the {Price Type} field would determine the correct unit price applied, which could then be multiplied by the desired quantity to get the total price for that selected product.

Does that make sense?

Thank you so much for taking the time of boiling this down for me. I’ll give this a try and get back to you with my results :grinning_face_with_big_eyes:
Again, I really appreciate you taking the time to helping me out.

Best!
