I know very little about excel, so assume my knowledge level to be zero. What I want to do is this: 1) My pupils work to a skill set, ticking off another skill when they have completed it a few times. 2) These skills are linked to levels, though the children don't realise this. 3) This is where excel would come in if I knew how to do it. 1) The school works on a level basis, so I basically need to convert these skills into levels for data capture purposes. 2) Can I set excel up, so that when I type in a certain skill it will convert it to the appropriate level for me? Thanks.
