Please help! I have been searching for similar logic but couldn't find any in previous discussion.

I need to calculate "CommissionTotal" based on "CommissionValue" (established amount) multiplied by "CommissionTier", which has 5 options:

CommissionTier1 = 50%

CommissionTier2 = 65%

CommissionTier3 = 75%

CommissionTier4 = 80%

CommissionTier5 = 85%

If "CommissionTier" is dropdown field, set percentage as export value, for example:

for CommissionTier1 set export value 0.5

for CommissionTier2 set export value 0.65

...etc

For simple multiplications you can use built in calculations, under 'Calculate' tab select 'Value is the', select 'product(x) and pick "CommissionValue" and "CommissionTier" fields, or you can use 'Simplified field notation' just enter field names:

CommissionValue*CommissionTier
