I am organizing a football pool, and I would like to find a way to assign a team name a numerical value. For example, each person chooses 6 teams from different groups, and each team gets 2 points for a win. When I do the quarterly updates, I would like to be able to tell the sheet that each "San Fran" cell should equal '12' or each "Seattle" cell should equal '16'. I am not sure if this is possible, but any help would be greatly appreciated (and save me about 2 hours of data entry per quarter during the football season!). I have a good understanding of the Excel program, but I am not very good with the technical language that I have seen so far on these boards. I am running Office for Mac 2011. Thank you!
