Create a formula to total the individual values of a dropdown list from one column?
So I have a dropdown column that has 12 options and it does allow multiple selections. Each of these items is worth 0.5 value. I am trying to create a formula for another column to report the total value selected in this column by the end user. So if the user selects 3 of these items from the dropdown, I need the formula to total those into a value of 1.5.

Use the COUNTM function to count the number of selected elements in a multiselect cell.
=COUNTM([Multiselect column name]@row)

Hi Jeff, Thanks for answering. Wouldn't that only count the number of items checked though? I need the formula to total the value given to each of these dropdown items. They are each valued at 0.5.
