Hello,

I'm having a lot of trouble with this one so hoping someone can help.

I need a formula to sum a range of cells using the weighting below. I'd really appreciate any help with this.

Hello Younes, welcome to MrExcel

If text is in range B2:I2 then try this formula to include all the information in the formula

=SUM(COUNTIF(B2:I2,{"Needs Development","Basic","Intermediate","Advanced","Expert"})*{1,2,3,4,5})

.....or if you have that table in Y2:Z6, e.g. Z2:Z6 for text values and Y2:Y6 for numbers and then use this version

=SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(B2:I2,$Z$2:$Z$6),$Y$2:$Y$6)
