Hi,

I have attached a spreadsheet where i am allowing users to select different ratings in dropdown boxes which afffect the overall score in I8.

Currently it works fine as i have manually inputted the appropriate score in the formula

=(3*'Standing Data'!C8)+(3*'Standing Data'!G8)+(2*'Standing Data'!K8)+(1*'Standing Data'!O8)

3 = High
2 = Medium
1 = Low

As the users change the dropdowns, i want the numbers to update. So above the first dropdown is high, if a user changed that to low, i would need the formula to calculate as

=(2*'Standing Data'!C8)+(3*'Standing Data'!G8)+(2*'Standing Data'!K8)+(1*'Standing Data'!O8)

Has anyone a suggestion to how i could achieve this?

Many thanks

Have the dropdown populate a cell with the required value of 1 to 3 and then refer to that cell in the formula.

What variety of dropdown control are you using?

Sorry just looked at file.

In M1 to M3 I have listed:

Low
Medium
High

then changed the formula to:

=(MATCH(E8,M1:M3,0)*'Standing Data'!C8)+(MATCH(F8,M1:M3,0)*'Standing Data'!G8)+(MATCH(G8,M1:M3,0)*'Standing Data'!K8)+(MATCH(H8,M1:M3,0)*'Standing Data'!O8)

Hope I have understood the rankings OK.

Thanks

Also looking at your formula in J8, you don't have an option for equal to 3 or equal to 2.15. These at the minute would fall out as "SCC" which I assume would not be correct.

You could probably simplify this formula with a close match lookup:

=VLOOKUP(I8,'Standing Data'!C20:D23,2)

Thanks Rob,

I just threw that formula in and received an #N/A error?

#N/A would suggest that it is not finding the value of cell I8 in the first column of the range:

Standing Data'!C20:D23

See attached.
