Need help with a Notion formula that autofills

I want to type in a "name" of something and it autofills with the "number" that it's set to. Example. Sofa = $145

So when I am in a database, and I type sofa, I want the box to autofill to $145 instead of sofa.

That is not how Notion formulas work, you need 2 properties.

1- Name
2- Formula

In 1 you write the name: Sofa
In 2 you have something like this:

if(prop("Name") == "Sofa", "$145", "")

If the name is equal to Sofa, show $145, otherwise show nothing.

So if you have 20 variables, you will need to create a complete formula checking everything and displaying what you need.

Hope that helps.

That does work, thank you! How do I write it if I have 50 "names" to add in. I tried coping the formula and changing the item, but it didn't work. Is there a generic one?
As of now I have a column that is name and a column that is price. Can I do anything with that on the formula or do I have to create formula and type them all out?

You will have to add all the ifs in the formula, using if or ifs.

Here is a simple example with if.

if(prop("Name") == "Sofa", "$145", if(prop("Name") == "Chair", "$33", ""))

If name is sofa show $145, if name is chair show $33, otherwise show nothing.

So following this example, you have to add as many conditions as you need.

Just use your properties names, where capital letters, spaces and everything matters.

The example using "Name" is not the same as "name", so you can use whatever you want.
