Formula to return the SUM of prices from a cell with multiple values (multiselect column)

Hello!

I'm sure someone has encountered this issue before so hopefully there's a work around it.

We have a tracker with multiple service requests. We document each request in a very detailed way here. We already have a lot of columns here, so adding more than 2-3 is not an option.

From a multi-select column named "Transaction", users can select from a long list of transactions names as many as they need. Each transaction has a different price. I need to build a formula that SUM the prices of all the transactions selected, searching in a helper sheet for the price associated with each transaction.

Is there a mix of functions that could help me achieve this? I was thinking that maybe COLLECT with VLOOKUP but not sure if they work together.

Any guidance would be wonderful.

Thanks!
