In the Nintex form I am building, I have a drop down list where the end user will make a selection from 11 possible options. The selected option is then included in the subject line of an email that is sent to another group. However, I need to convert the alpha info into a numeric value. In order to make my example simplistic, let’s say the drop down has 11 colors to choose from. The first selection in the list is Blue and it would have a numeric value of 1; next would be Red and it would equal 2…and so forth until the last color having a numeric value of 11. Instead of listing “Blue” in my email subject line, I need it to show as the numeric value of 1. Thanks in advance.
