    I'm trying to display text instead of number values

     

    e.g.

     

    Drop Down list:

    Auckland

    Hamilton

    Wellington

     

    Values:

    ACK

    HAM

    WEL

     

    IS this possible?

    Yes, you can assign text values as calculation values, for example:

    And then you can use it in calculations:

    Just make sure you selected the field as String (it needs to be gray like in the image above).
    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!
