I have created a form that records incidents. each incident can have one or more physical intervention techniques used.

We are required to graph on the total number of times these techniques are used across all incidents.

Easy to do if only one technique, graphing and reporting works well, however I am struggling with the multiples.

Good advice from caspio has led me to adding a formula field within table but I am a bit stuck.

So lets say I have four columns, each with drop downs of the 12 techniques we use, I need to formula field to account for the multiples that are assigned to each record.

I suppose I have two questions!

Is the formula field the best solution and if so can someone give me a pointer in how to set up the formula?
