I have an excel table and I want to assign some values to a particular score.  When the person is assigned a score the other values associated with that score show up in the adjacent columns.
The scores that should show up are hyperlinked to the column AP marked scale so click on that to see the scores.

You should first set up the reference table to have values in descending order (smallest first).

Then put following formula at cell AP3: =VLOOKUP(AO3;D81:H118;2)
AQ3:=VLOOKUP(AO3;D81:H118;3)
AR3:=VLOOKUP(AO3;D81:H118;5) (you could reorganize the reference tabel to not have empty columns and then change the 5 from this cell to 4 and h118 to g118)

Hope this is what you are for looking for..

I have put the formula in the first cell AP3 but it keeps coming up with an error and won't let me out of it.
