I have a likert scale survey project in front of me.
I need to take the survey answers and give them a numeric value.
I then need the numberic value to populate on a calculation sheet.
This survey will be used 100x over the next few months.

Sheet one:
1. Question: Answer:_______

The answer options will be A, B, C, D or E with a numeric value assigned to each answer option.
A = 1, B = .5, C = 0, D = -.5, E = -1

I need the numeric value to populate on Sheet two.
1. Answer Score: _______

for example:
(sheet one)
(cell A1) 1. Answer: A
(cell B1) 2. Answer: C

(sheet two)
(cell C5)1. Answer Score: 1
(cell C6)2. Answer Score: 0

How do I reference sheet one, cell A1's text - to populate into sheet 2, cell C5 as a numeric value?
I am using excel 2013.
I hope I asked this question clearly :?

wingingit2018, Good afternoon.

Very clear explanation. Congrats.

Try to use:

Sheet 2

C5 -->
Code:
 [B]=LOOKUP( Sheet1!A1, {"A","B","C","D","E"}, {1,0.5,0,-0.5,-1} )[/B]
Please, tell us if it worked as necessary.

I hope it helps.
