Excellent=1, Good=2, etc.
Ok, I want to average the ratings for a particular product. Here are the
ratings: Excellent Good Excellent Fair Good Good Poor If Excellent=1, Good=2, Average=3, Fair=4, Poor=5.... then what's the average? I'm trying to find a formula that will calculate this.

I'm trying to find a formula that will calculate this. Set up a table with your equivalences: Excellent 5 Good 4 Average 3 Fair 2 Poor 1 In an adjacent column to your ratings, enter the formula: (assumes ratings start in A1, and that the table is NAME'd tbl, although you could use absolute cell references instead) =VLOOKUP(A1,tbl,2,FALSE) Average the resultant numbers. If you do not want to use an adjacent column and lookup table, you could use the following formula: =SUM(COUNTIF(A:A,"excellent")*5,COUNTIF(A:A,"Good" )*4, COUNTIF(A:A,"Average")*3,COUNTIF(A:A,"Fair")*2, COUNTIF(A:A,"Poor"))/COUNTA(A:A) You may want to adjust the reference to column A. ron

Hi Ron Or shorter =SUM(COUNTIF(A:A,{"Excellent","Good","Average","Fa ir","Poor"})*{5,4,3,2,1})/COUNTA(A:A) Maybe even =SUM(COUNTIF(A:A,{"Excellent","Good","Average","Fa ir","Poor"})*{1,2,3,4,5})/COUNTA(A:A) :) LeoH

One (short but complex) option is:
=SUM(IF(TRANSPOSE(A2:A100)=C2:C5,D25)) Hope it helped Ola SandstrÃ¶m Note: This is an Array formula (=it does several calculation in one cell) All array formulas must be confirmed by holding down Ctrl and Shift then hit Enter. Just hit  the normal  Enter will not work  #VALUE! C25 is the reference list: Text Rate Excellent 1 Good 2 Fair 3 Poor 4

Hi
Entered as array formula (with Ctrl+Shift+Enter), assuming your ratings are in range A2:A100: =AVERAGE(MATCH(A2:A100,{"Excellent";"Good";"Averag e";"Fair";"Poor"},0)) Arvi Laanemets "Kmarie" wrote in message news Ok, I want to average the ratings for a particular product.

As Leo pointed out, I had the equivalences backwards, but you should be able to change them easily. ron
