I am trying to auto populate the risk level of an item based on the selection from two fields and where they intersect in a matrix

Column A = Impact; dropdown selection
Column B = Probability; drop selection
Column C = Risk Level; calculated based on the selection in the above two fields and where they intersect in the matrix

 A B C 1 Impact Probability Risk Level 2 Medium Likely Medium

 A B C D E F Negligible Low Medium High Severe 1 Almost Certain Medium High High Extreme Extreme 2 Very Likely Medium Medium High High Extreme 3 Likely Low Medium Medium Medium High 4 Unlikely Low Low Low Medium Medium 5 Rare Low Low Low Low Medium

### Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
