Hi! I need help with a formula. I am trying to calculate using two picklist fields. What is the correct syntax?

It looks like the maximum compiled size formulas compilizaion on an object is exceeded.

So create a new text field, make it read-only, and set a workflow rule to populate the value every time the record is saved. Workflow formula field updates do not count against the object's compiled formula size.

In the field update set the value to new field  by use the below formula:

CASE( TEXT(Urgency__c)+'-'+TEXT(Impact__c) , 
    "Critical-Extensive", "P1", 
    "Critical-Significant", "P1",
    "Critical-Moderate", "P2",
    "Critical-Minor", "P3",
    "High-Extensive", "P1",
    "High-Significant", "P2",
    "High-Moderate", "P2",
    "High-Minor", "P3",
    "Medium-Extensive", "P2",
    "Medium-Significant", "P2",
    "Medium-Moderate", "P3",
    "Medium-Minor", "P3",
    "Low-Extensive", "P4",
    "Low-Significant",  "P4",
    "Low-Moderate",  "P4",
    "Low-Minor",  "P4",
"")

Here is what I have so far:

IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Critical') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Extensive','P1'
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Critical') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Significant','P1,
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'High') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Extensive, P1',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Critical') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Moderate', 'P2',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'High') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Significant', 'P2',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'High') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Moderate', 'P2',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Medium') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Extensive', 'P2',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Medium') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Significant', 'P2',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Critical') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Minor', 'P3',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'High') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Minor', 'P3',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Medium') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Moderate', 'P3',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Medium') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Minor', 'P3',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Low') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Extensive', 'P4',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Low') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Significant', 'P4',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Low') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Moderate', 'P4',
IF(ISPICKVAL(Urgency__c, 'Low') && ISPICKVAL(Impact__c, 'Minor', 'P4'))))))))))))))))

Hi,

Try the formula like below:

CASE( TEXT(Urgency__c)+'-'+TEXT(Impact__c) 
    "Critical-Extensive", "P1", 
    "Critical-Significant", "P1",
    "High-Extensive", "P1",
    "Critical-Moderate", "P2",
    "High-Significant", "P1",
    "High-Moderate", "P1",
    "Medium-Significant", "P1",
" Else Result ")                          // Please add the else value if no combination are met

Thanks,

Thank you! 

I tried the formula you mentioned, but now I get a message saying the compiled formula is too big to execute.

Here's the formula:

CASE( TEXT(Urgency__c)+'-'+TEXT(Impact__c) , 
    "Critical-Extensive", "P1", 
    "Critical-Significant", "P1",
    "Critical-Moderate", "P2",
    "Critical-Minor", "P3",
    "High-Extensive", "P1",
    "High-Significant", "P2",
    "High-Moderate", "P2",
    "High-Minor", "P3",
    "Medium-Extensive", "P2",
    "Medium-Significant", "P2",
    "Medium-Moderate", "P3",
    "Medium-Minor", "P3",
    "Low-Extensive", "P4",
    "Low-Significant",  "P4",
    "Low-Moderate",  "P4",
    "Low-Minor",  "P4",
" Else Result ")
