Hi @oappdev ,


Is Attributes/Values a multiple-selection choice column? And Points a number column? And how would want the numbers in Points column to be summed?

Hi @v-monli-msft 


That is correct

  • Using a Combo box for Attributes/Values
  • Points is a number column


I was able to create a Label and add this to the Text Property  from @Edwin-Abdalian


Displaying the correct sum on the label


I would like to submit the sum to a Column in SharePoint call Total Score 

you need to use the Patch function to insert the Sum in other list.
