New in this forum. And I have a quick question: I have a choice column with this values:




And I would like to add a column that multiplies if I choose Kg or Lb or Ton and convert everything to Lb:

Kg to Lb Rate = 2.2046

Lb to Lb = 1

Lb to Ton = 2000

Can someone point me in the right direction?

  • What is the meaning of " if I choose Kg or Lb or Ton and convert everything to Lb Kg to Lb Rate = 2.2046 Lb to Kb = 1 Lb to Ton = 2000"? Please describe it a little bit clearly. – Lisa Chen MSFT Jun 8 at 12:52

If I understood correctly then you want to convert your value column in "Lb" unit based on the choice column.


[Unit Column] --> Choice column with choices: Kg, Ton, Lb

[Another Column] --> Column which contains actual value

Then use below formula:

=IF([Unit Column]="Kg", [Another Column] * 2.2046, IF([Unit Column]="Ton", [Another Column] * 2000, [Another Column] * 1))

Instead of [Another Column] * 1, you can also use only [Another Column] (I have added it just for better understanding).


  1. Sometimes comma(,) does not work in formula (I am not sure but it is based on something language or regional settings on your site). So in that case use semicolon(;) instead of comma(,).
  2. Make sure your value column ([Another Column]) is of Number data type.
  3. Return your calculated field as Number.
