Summing $ from Multiselect dropdown that includes text
I am running into a problem that I have not been able to find in the community.
I have a multiselect dropdown column that includes text and $ values, e.g. A  $25.00, B  $30.00, etc... I would like to take the selection from the column and sum the $ values. I would then multiply that by the Qty, =( )* Qty@row.
I am able to calculate when one item is selected using =VALUE(SUBSTITUTE([Sample Products]@row, LEFT([Sample Products]@row,FIND("", [Sample Products]@row)+1),"")) * Qty@row. However, when I have multiple selections it generates an INVALID VALUE error.
Any suggestions?
**** The highlighted columns are me thinking that if I can isolate the Sample Product selection I could then sum from those. However, I am not using them in this formula.****

Hi @Paul Reeves
The formula from Paul is what I would suggest. Since you're using a multiselect cell, you'll ned to search in the cell for each individual selection to then multiply it by the correct column amount.

Finding a similar solution from @Paul Newcome I used the following... however I would love to have something a little more dynamic.
=(IF(CONTAINS("A", [Sample Products]@row), A@row) + IF(CONTAINS("B", [Sample Products]@row), B@row) + IF(CONTAINS("C", [Sample Products]@row), C@row) + IF(CONTAINS("D", [Sample Products]@row), D@row) + IF(CONTAINS("E", [Sample Products]@row), E@row)) * Qty@row
Any other suggestions?
