# Re: [libreoffice-users] Help with Scoring Bi-nominal Responses

```How about:

T2 = 4 * (F2 AND (L2=3))

```Thanks to all for the previous help,

Also, sorry if you have addressed this already, Brian. But, I know only
basic functions within the spreadsheet and will request a more explanatory
example.
The file was delivered in xlsx format. I would like to maintain the format
(using LibreOffice!), but I may have to look to other software.

Here is an example of my first two rows of data, cells F2&3 through S2&3,
with F1-S1 containing variable names

*F*     *G*     *H*     *I*     *J*     *K*     *L*     *M*     *N*
*O*     *P*     *Q*     *R*     *S*
0       1       0       1       0       0       1       0       0       0
0       0       0       0
1       0       1       1       0       0       1       0       0       0
1       0       0       0

Using a simple example with only two cells (F2&L2), I want T2 to equal a
'score' based on a weighted index, like this:

IF F2=0 then T2=0; else T2=T2+1;
(Where F2 can only take on a value of 0 or 1)
AND
IF L2=0 OR L2=1 OR L2=2 then T2=T2+0; else T2=T2+3
(Where L2 can take on a value of 0,1,2,or 3)

So that:

T2 = 0 (if F2=0 and L2=0,1,or 2)
OR
T2 = 4 (if F2=1 and L2=3)

I haven't been able to create the proper syntax for this simple two cell
scoring.
How can I not only score an individual cell but also link it with another
cell in the same row?
A simple demonstration will be adequate so that I can create my specific
and more complicated function.

I hope I have stated my needs in a clearer fashion this time around, and
thanks to everyone for the previous help.

Regards,
-Paul

```Hello all,

I have a simple question for which I cannot find the answer.

I have a LibreCalc spreadsheet containing binomial data for which I
would like to create a final summed "score" (in Column T) based upon a
manually specified score index.

Columns F, G, H, J, K, M, N, O, P, O, and R contain pure binomial
information (0 or 1)
Columns I, L, and S contain multiple numbered responses:
I = 0,1,3
L = 0,1,2,3
S = 0,1,2

I want to create a final score (Column T) based upon numerical responses
(in Columns F-S)

```
```All this makes me think of binary data, hence to have columns F..R
(except I, L & S) set to hold either 0 or a power of 2.
F would hold 0 or 1
G            0 or 2
H            0 or 4
J            0 or 8
and so forth.

Then, adding any group of columns would then give a unique meaningful
value:
-- if you add F+G+H and get 3, you know that only F and G are set
-- if you AND F+G+H with, say, 2, you may check if G (value 2) is set :
if G AND 2 = 2 then G is set (in Calc use the BITAND function)

As I don't know exactly what you're looking to achieve, perhaps my idea
is useless.

Anyway, just my two euro-cents,
