    Red face Select from a drop down menu text and return a percentage

    Hello

    Happy Christmas - I am looking forward to a nice break from work and hope you will be too.

    Could I please have your help?

    I have created an evaluation form example - link here - https://imgur.com/a/6X4xt

    On the form I have a list of questions - each question is to be rated from 0 through 5. Each number (0-5) represents a percentage. when all the questions are answered I get a total percentage.

    However; some questions are a yes or no questions - so I am asking the person to rate a 5 for YES and rate 0 for NO
    how can I change the number 0 and 5 to a yes and no and still get the calculation to work ?

    your help would be much appreciated

    kindly sue

    Re: Select from a drop down menu text and return a percentage

    Will you please attach a sample Excel workbook? We are not able to work with or manipulate a picture of one and nobody wants to have to recreate your data from scratch.

    1. Make sure that your sample data are REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired results are also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential data is removed or replaced with dummy data first (e.g. names, addresses, E-mails, etc.).

    4. Try to avoid using merged cells as they cause lots of problems.

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment, so to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    Please pay particular attention to point 2 (above): without an idea of your intended outcomes, it is often very difficult to offer appropriate advice.

    =if(OR(D7="yes",D7="y"),1*$B7,0*$B7) should do it.

    Actually since you are using data validation you can add yes to your calculations sheet and then just have it be =if(D7="yes",1*$B7,0*$B7)
