Calculate the number of checkboxes that a user turned on Total the boxes checked (turned on) within a given record Calculation ToNumber([Checkbox1]) + ToNumber([Checkbox2]) Convert the value in Checkbox1 to a number and add it to the value in Checkbox 2. Include as many checkbox fields as necessary Numeric The ToNumber formula returns a 1 for true or yes and a 0 otherwise.   More on this solution...
Convert a value representing time in minutes into seconds When I enter a time in minutes and seconds (ie. 3.42) I need to be able to convert these to seconds. Time ToNumber(Left([Minutes], ".")) * 60 + ToNumber(Right([Minutes], ".")) The Left function will return all the text up to but not including the period. In the example, that is 3. Since it is a text value, convert it into a number using the ToNumber function and then multiply the result by 60 to get seconds.

Do the same to extract the text after the period using the Right function. Finally, we add it up to get the total seconds -- in this case it should be 3*60 + 50 = 230 seconds.
Numeric Use a text field to store the number (like 3.42) since three minutes and 42 seconds is not the same thing as 3.42 seconds.   More on this solution...
Calculate how many fields are empty I need to create a field that counts the number of field that are non blank. The field that I need to count are labeled Model number 1, Model number 2 etc... Calculation ToNumber(IsNull([Model number 1])) + 
ToNumber(IsNull([Model number 2]))
IsNull returns a yes or no result, which when you convert it to a number using the ToNumber() function, becomes a one for yes or a zero for no. Insert a + operator to add all values together. Add as many additional fields as you need. Numeric This solution assumes that the Model Number fields are numeric. If those  fields are text type fields, the IsNull() function wont work. Try something like the following instead:

ToNumber(If (Length([Model number 1]) > 0, true, false) + 
ToNumber(If (Length([Model number 2]) > 0, true, false)

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:
