# How to Assign Calculation Value

**Last Update: August 27, 2017**

Calculation value is generally used for calculations. It represents the numerical value of the text options. This is only available on radio button, checkbox and drop-down fields. To assign calculation value on these fields, follow these steps.

1) Select a field and click its gear icon to open the field properties.

2) Under

**Options**tab, turn ON**Add Calculation Values**to show the table for the calculation values.In the table, you'll see text options on the left side auto-filled with your field options. While the empty column on the right side is for the calculation values.

You can enter each calculation value for every text option. It is also possible to paste values in the calculation value column like the following.

3) That's it. The changes are automatically saved.

Take note: For the dropdown field, the first option must be zero. This represents the first empty value of the dropdown field.

veshmanIs there a way to format the checkbox responses so that multiple values result in each item on it's own line?

Currently, with the checkbox, multiple values are separated with a comma - that is hard to read. It would be nice to have each checkboxed item show on a new line.

TalkNetHi, can I read the values in a spreadsheet from Google sheets instead of writing them in text form? So that they can be filled and modified automatically.

Similarly: can I link a form text to a cell in a Google sheet spreadsheet to show a result based on what is completed in the form?

Thank you

Hola, puedo leer los valores de una hoja de calculo de Google sheets en lugar de escribirlos en forma de texto? De modo que se puedan llenar y modificar automáticamente.

Del mismo modo: puedo vincular un texto del formulario a una celda de una hoja de calculo de Google sheet para mostrar un resultado en base a lo que se completo en el formulario?

Gracias

Chris_VMSGuys!

The new dropdown "add calculation value"style is REAL BAD! I'm unable to copy-paste entire rows of data from my spreadsheet! Having to do it one by one is impossible as I've a lot of data there!

Please revert to the old notepad style or better make a switch for two input styles to be used at our leisure.

Looks like the Calculation values got a facelift UI and it's now very difficult to update them... Is there any way to bulk copy what's already in there?
