Hi all,

My organisation currently use a 1-4 scale to score our grounds maintenance contractor's workmanship.

However, our contractor use 1-7.

I need a formula that will convert one to another with 1=1 and 4=7. I need the results to show down to 2 decimals i.e.:

1.00 = 1.00
1.50 = 2.00
2.00 = 3.00
2.50 = 4.00
3.00 = 5.00
3.50 = 6.00
4.00 = 7.00

If I just had to report in whole numbers and halves (even quarters) this would be fine, but I need to report down to the nearest second decimal (10th) i.e.: 1.37 = ?.??

Any ideas?

Thanks, Graeme.
