How to make a text field specify the data for a list field?

edited Dec 13, 2021 8:27PM in Search / Reporting 5 comments

Lets say we had a list field that used this list....


red 1

green 20

blue 30

Then we wanted to do a mass update to populate that list selection for a number of records and our formula looked at a different text field and if text was like 'red%' then 1, and like 'green%' then 20, like 'blue%' then 30.

I tried a formula like that (but properly formatted) and I got a mismatched data/wrong data type error. IS this not possible? Can we not populate a list field by providing the matching text values from a text field?

Howdy, Stranger!
