VBA EXCEL assign and categorize data

Hi, another question: I have a sheet (is attached) where I need to categorize data according to the Rating. On sheet "Info" we can find the rating (column B) for the particular bond - on sheet "Risk Criteria" we can find the the Riskrating (column E) which indicates that A+ to A- will get the rating 3 (this inculdes also A as it is in between A+ and A-). Everything BB+ and below will get a 5 - if there is no rating it should also get a 5. (AAA = 1; AA+, AA, AA- = 2; A+, A, A- = 3; BBB+, BBB, BBB- = 4, the rest =5). The result should be displayed in sheet "Calculation". The CUSIP/ISIN is the ID. If you have any help how to solve this I would be very grateful.
Moreover, I would like to classify the country by assinig them another rating. This rating still has to be calculated according to the data i am downloading on sheet "Country". Here we can see that there are many bonds with a number (yield) - this data actually has to be sorted by the numer (yield) so that we can perform the assignment of the Risk Criteria. On sheet "Risk Criteria" we can the 20% having the highest number (yield) should get the number 5 (80.01% - 100%) this should include all the countries on the bottim of the table on sheet "Country". If there is not country found the Bond should get a 5 (as with the Rating). The result should be displayed on sheet "Calculation". Again, I am grateful for any help.

Just to note you had "Germany" in your country list twice, this will skew your results by a very small percent.
