# Calculate drop-down values based on another dropdown

Hi

I am working with customer responses in drop-down values of yes, no, not sure in one column and based on the responses I would like to calculate the traction of the product

Which can be strong average or poor

So my questionnaire looks like

Q1 - yes, no, not sure
Q2- yes , no, not sure

And based on the responses I need to calculate traction

How do I achieve it

Hi Kallaks,

So which response pair would give Strong, Average or Poor? Do questions 1 or 2 have higher weight?

If the question doesn't matter by weight then you could just allocate Yes=1, Not sure=0 and No=-1 to the responses like this (So you'd get -2 to 2 and adding 3 let's you use CHOOSE to give the desired rating).
