Automatic Calculation according to drop-down character string values selected

I hope somebody might be able to help me with the following...... Can ACT! do the following or would I need a plug-in like Topline ?

 

I have several fields (in Opportunity) with a limited selection of drop-down values (character strings) that cannot be edited by the user. I want it so that when a particular character string value in the drop-down submenu is selected, a numerical value is assigned to a particular value for that field, then all such allocated numerical values are automatically summed and displayed. (I don’t even know where the different numerical values would be stored – table or whatever – it doesn’t matter to me as long as I can get automatic allocation and summation for that Opportunity).

 

Is that something ACT! can do without plug-in or would I need some plug-in ?

 

Thanks for your help!

I've used Auto Field Calc to do this for my clients.
