# Formula to include a field if conditionally.

I currently have 3 fields that i am adding to gether in a formula

[Other Savings Field 2.1]+[Other Savings Field 2.2]+[Other Savings Field 2.3]  now if i wanted to add Other savings 1.1 to it conditionally.   How would i go about writing a formula like that.  My thought was to maybe have a checkbox to add to total but woudl that work?  How would the formula work?  Or is there a different way to have that field added to total?

• Do you have a clean way to add 1.1 conditionally through another field/IF logic? The syntax is pretty easy - something like:

[Other Savings Field 2.1]+[Other Savings Field 2.2]+[Other Savings Field 2.3]  +

If( condition goes here, [Other Savings Field 1.1], 0)

So lets say you had a checkbox to 'Include 1.1' - then you would have it like:

[Other Savings Field 2.1]+[Other Savings Field 2.2]+[Other Savings Field 2.3]  +

If( [Include 1.1], [Other Savings Field 1.1], 0)

In the above it will return 0 if you don't want to include it.

• I am getting an error on the calculation stating expecting text but found a number. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

• Can you confirm if the field [Other Savings Field 1] is a numeric field? It looks like in the scope of the if() statement that it's interpreting that field as text, so if that field type is text then wrap it in a ToNumber field like:

[FTE Reduction Savings2]+[Rework. Final Amount]+[Medical Cost Savings1] + [Automation Savings.1] + if( [Include in Total calculation1], ToNumber([Other Savings Field 1]), 0)
