Creating a "Point System" Spreadsheet
Hi There,
I am trying to create a spreadsheet where if a certain cell has a number that falls into a certain range, it would be assigned a certain number/point. For example: If a rate is 7.5%8%, 2 pts will be assigned; if 8%8.5%, then 3 points will be assigned and so on. How do I do this? Thank you, MT

Creating a "Point System" Spreadsheet
Set up a table somewhere (eg in X1:Y10) which will be made up of the
start value of your range and the number of points you want to award, eg: 0% 0 5% 1 7.5% 2 8% 3 8.5% 4 etc., then with a percentage in A1 you can use this formula to get the points: =VLOOKUP(A1,X$1:Y$10,2) Copy down if required. Hope this helps.

One option might be =IF(A3=7.5%,2+INT((A37.5%)/0.5%),"")
It is a bit inconsistent as to how it treats values which lie right on the border, as presumably some values fall victim to rounding errors in fixed point binary. If need be, a ROUND function could presumably tidy the situation up.  David Biddulph "lanmari" wrote in message ...
