Hello Experts
I am working in excel 2010.  I have a list that I am using multiple times in a drop down list.  I want a way to do a calculation based on the choice the user used.                             Item    Value
                                                                                                 Truck      2
                                                                                                 Car          1
The user can choose the truck or car in various cells of the sheet.  I then want a total value based on their text choice2.

Any suggestions?
Thanks
Jarrod
