Lookup Question

Hi All,

I hope I can explain this clearly.

Column A is Student Name. Column B is group (either group 1, 2, 3 or 4). Column C is test mark out of 100.

I have a lookup for each group. But each group has different parameters. For example Group 1: 0 to 40 = Below Target. 41 to 65 = On Target. 66 to 100 = Above Target

So in Column D I want to say "Student is in Group 3 so to use lookup table for group 3".

Does that make sense?

Many thanks,

So where are your group parameters stored? What's the layout for that data?
You haven't said.

Post a sample spreadsheet with expected results, remove any sensitive data, create a mockup example if necessary.
You cant attach files on this forum. There are tools on this forum for adding small spreadsheet images


remember to include row numbers (1, 2, 3) and column letters (A, B, C etc)
