I have an excel spreadsheet that has three cells titled as follows
  Poor <50.0
  Avg >50.0<75.0
  Excellent >75.0

These are in cell D7, E7 and F7, respectively.

If I place an X in any of the cells below those (i.e. D8, E10, F 12)

I'd like to have that cell D7 wording placed in a rating cell, i.e. H8.

Can I do this?  How can I do this?

The only way i can think of doing this is to have two tabs with identical tables. Then in your first tab you would need to do an if statement. I.E. =IF(Sheet2!A2="x",Sheet2!A1," ") This would fill in your table automatically for you with the wording you want. I attached the spreadsheet i made as an example

=IF(D8="X",$D$7,IF(E8="X",$E$7,IF(F8="X",$F$7,"NR")))

Open in new window

The above formula in cell H8 should do the trick.  It uses absolute referencing, so it will easily copy.  The cell will show NR if you have not select a column or you have not used an X.

What happens at 50 and 75?  At present, your boundary conditions do not cover those two cases :)
