Hi I have a forms with 16 questions, the questions have one of four answers

A Rarely seen

B Occasionally seen

C Frequently seen

D Seen majority of the time

I want to calculate the total across the rows with a vaule for each of

A = 1 

B = 2

C = 3

D = 4 

Is there a formula that can do this? 

=IF(([Q1]1 = "A Rarely seen"), "1", 0)

=IF([Q1]1 = "B Occasionally seen", "2", "0")

=IF([Q1]1 = "C Frequently seen", "3", "0")

=IF([Q1]1 = "D Seen majority of the time", "4", "0")

But is it possible to combine these in a if or or to add a total across the row and down the column?

    Hi @MediaDes

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =
    COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "A Rarely seen") * 1 + 
    COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "B Occasionally seen") * 2 + 
    COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "C Frequently seen") * 3 + 
    COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "D seen majority of the time") * 4
    

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

  • Hi Andree

    I am will I hope you are too?

    Thank you for your prompt response much appreciated.

    Unfortunately it hasn't worked it says #UNPARSEABLE

    =COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "A Rarely seen") * 1 + COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "B Occasionally seen") * 2 + COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "C Frequently seen") * 3 + COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "D seen majority of the time") * 4

    I tried just a count on the =COUNTIFS([Q1]@row:[Q16]@row, "A Rarely seen") * 1 but this didn;t work either

    This gave the same error too.

    Regards

    Glad to hear you're well, and I am too!

    Happy to help!

    Strange!

    I'd be happy to take a quick look.

    Can you maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s)? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
