# Collating variable sets of data into a summary sheet

#### zakynthos

##### Board Regular
Hi,

With Excel 2010:

On a Summary workbook (Sheet 1) in column A:

A fixed list of 12 categories, each with a fixed number of associated questions listed below each Category heading

Category1
Q1
Q2
Q3 etc

Category2
Q1
Q2
Q3
Q4 etc

I also have 2 types of weekly data sheet formatted as follows:

Data Sheet 1:

In Column A:

A variable list (ie repeats of the above 12 categories), each with a number of associated questions in the following format:

Example in A1, A2 A3 A4 etc
Category1 / Question2
Category3 / Question5
Category1 / Question1
Category2 / Question4 etc

Data Sheet 2:

In Columns A and B:

A variable list (ie repeats of the above 12 categories, each with a number of associated questions in the following format:

Example in A1, A2 A3 A4 etc
Category1
Category1
Category 4
Category 6

Example in B1, B2, B3 B4 etc
Question5
Question2
Question4
Question6
Question5

What I would like to be able to do is link the results of these 2 sets of calculations into the summary spread sheet.

Calculation 1 (example)

Say I have 1960 repeated categories/questions in all over the 12 fixed categories of which there are 16 repeats of Category 1. I would want to return a value of 1% (rounded up) against Category 1 on my summary sheet (say C1)
(i.e. 16/1960*100 = 0.82% rounded up to 1%

Calculation 2 (example)

Say if I have a count of 8 Question 1’s within Category 1 then I would want to return 50% against Q1 of Category 1 (say in C2) on the summary workbook sheet.

(ie =8/16*100 = 50%) on the summary sheet.

Many thanks
