=IF(CONTAINS([202Disability,801 Offender,802 Low income,803ESL]@row, "Disability"), 1, 9)
What changes need to be made to the above formula to return a "1" if "Disability" is selected, and a "9" if it is not selectedwhether or not there are multiple selections made in the dropdown menu?
This formula works when "Disability" is the only item selected. However, if more than one item is selected in the dropdown (i.e., "Low income", "Offender" and/or “Disability”) then it returns a "9".

Hi, @DonnaH. You can use FIND().
IF( FIND("Disability", [Column_Name]@row) <> 0, 1, 9)
A multiselect value is text, so FIND() will work.
