    Hmmm, what if the user checks 10 boxes?  Does this need to be a multi select field type.  Can it be a Multiple choice field?

    I would need to have it where I can check multiple items and then have the amounts total into the CHANGE ORDER - ESTIMATED COST to TSC field is there another way to accomplish this?

    Kind of a pain if you have a bunch of choices, but you can use a formula field and define a numeric variable for each option, then sum those variables.

    So for example:

    var text options = totext([CHANGE ORDER - LIST OF ITEMS NOT READY]);
    var number optionA = if(contains($options, "TERMINATIONS"),2000,0);
    var number optionB = if(contains($options, "EQUIPMENT SET UP"),2000,0);
    var number optionC = if(contains($options, "GREENHOUSE"),3000,0);

    and so on.  And then after you declare all of the variables, the formula is sum($optionA, $optionB, $optionC, ...)
