Did I make it too difficult to calculate?

edited 09/29/23 in Formulas and Functions


I am a rookie when it comes to formulas - and while I understand the basics, I feel stuck with one thing related to a sheet that will start coming data collection soon, and I want to ensure the formulas are all set before it starts. Here is where I am stumped:

I have a column on my smartsheet where one option let's call it "OPTION A" can be selected, and I added logic to my form. It opens an additional box: "OPTION B, OPTION C, and OPTION D." How would I best write the formula to calculate this data? I have two similar fields like this, and I want to make sure they appear when I export it to Excel clearly so I won't need to manually total information.
