@Harry Can you please check value coming in for the PMProject.PROB_Attributes?

I think this is coming as a NULL value, hence it showing blank.

Hello ,

I agree with Naveen:  when we display an attribute in a GI, we see the Description of the attribute, not the ID.

If you display the PMProject.PROB_Attributes value, I think you will see 10 %, 25 %, etc. and these values can’t be used in calculations.

Try changing the Description on the attributes to be 10 or 25 (remove the %).  Now you have a text field, and you can change the Text field by casting it like CDec( [PMProject.PROB_Attributes]) in your formula, to perform calculations.

Hello @Naveen Boga & @Laura02 , thank you for your suggestions. I actually found out that i was making a mistake in the calculation. So instead of PMProject.PROB_Attributes, I needed to put PMQuote.PROB_Attributes since, I was trying to pull the values from the Project Quotes screen only.
And now the results are now displaying correct.
Thank you once again.
