Thank you, Michael. Yes this helped tremendously.

=SUM([\$/lb]3:[\$ Prod Surcharge]3) * 50

I added an asterisk (multiply) in lieu of the / (division) but your formula got me 99.9% of the way there. Much appreciated, sir.

Since I'm in awe of your genius right now, perhaps you could help me with another question that I've illustrated above. I'm trying to take the quantity from my inventory spreadsheet and have it populate the adjacent cell in another separate spreadsheet after selecting that inventory item from a single select dropdown menu in the adjacent cell. I'll owe you a crisp \$5 bill if you can solve this one for me lol

I think it's quite simple: =IF([WIRE 1]42 = "L-61 (5/64) 60#", {Inventory Stock Control Range 2})

After =IF and entering the logical_expression, for value_if_true, click 'reference another sheet' and select the field you want to map over.
