    Hello IanRm,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    Do you want to use normal drop down field for conditions and calculation?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You can use normal drop down field in condition without any issue. If you need to use dropdown in calculation, you can set the calculation value for every drop down option. Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!
