# Tally adjusted based on N/A responses

Hello All,

Disclaimer, my Excel skills are a bit limited, but I do need help creating a formula. I am trying to tweak a QA scorecard. Each line item has been given a designated weighting. For example, the first line item is worth 2 marks. To achieve these 2 marks, a rep needs to do two things correctly. However, each of these two things can be scored Yes, No, or N/A. I would like to know if it is possible to create a formula whereby the cell for the designated weighting will only lower based on how many N/A's are counted in the two subsequent cells. So if cell A1 = 2 (designated weight), cell B1 = Yes, and cell C1= N/A, then I would like to know what formula can be used so that cell A1 reduces from 2 to 1, as a result of the N/A in cell C1. Hope this makes sense!

Any help that can be offered is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sorry you can't change the value of an other cell. You have to use a second column for calculate the real weight,

First of all, may I assume that the N/A is an error and needs to be corrected.

What is the formula in C1 if there is one? If it is not an error then it's not good practice to use N/A as meaning 'Not Applicable.'

You can get it to work if the Weight in A1 is a result of a formula. Is this or could this be the case?
