# Hi, i need some help with a formula. Can anyone help?

I am trying to get the weight column to automatically tell total weight based on two bits of information entered in to to coil thickness column and Lineal meters column.

The formula would be based on these principles;

If "coil thickness" is 0.4, then weight would equal "lineal meters" x 3.2, but if "coil thickness" is 0.5, then weight would equal "lineal meters" x 4.2.

Is this formula possible?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hello @Chrisr

Hope you are well. Try this in your Weight column:

=IF([Coil Thickness]@row = 0.5, [Lineal Meters]@row * 4.2, IF([Coil Thickness]@row = 0.4, [Lineal Meters]@row * 3.2))

Dear @Chrisr - please insert the following formula in the Weight column:

=IF([coil thickness]@row=.4, [lineal meters]@row *3.2,IF([coil thickness]@row=.5,[lineal meters]@row *.5,0))

Please make sure you right-click the Weight column and choose the "Convert to Column Formula" as shown below:

Accept my apologies if the above formula fails because my Smartsheet is not working at the moment, so I just wrote it using my knowledge!

Hope this helps!

Please feel free to discuss further if you still face any problem.
