On the How many there is a drop down arrow with 1, 2, 3, 4
I want to show that if 1 is selected the amount shows $125, if  2 is  selected the amount shows $445 and so on.



How Many snap shoot
How can I do this?

Is the Amount field a Number field or a Calculation? Meaning do you want to have it simply display a calculated amount or do you want to auto-enter it?  Either way the calculation would be the same using the Case( ) function which is just an extended If/Then statement with multiple tests.

Case( How Many = 1 ; 125 ; How Many = 2 ; 445 ; How Many = 3 ; 725 ; How Many = 4 ; 984 )
