9-box plotting in Excel

hi all, I need to populate a 9-box grid but the potential is evaluated on a scale of 1-3 and the performance on a scale of 1 to 4. How do I plot them on a 9-box? Many thanks!

There were and still are some links ...
I gotta take care some of those ...
Did You mean this or
did You give other clear idea of Your needs?
Thank you vletm - I need to be able to plot this in a 9 grid box not a 4 box grid, and problem is usually the scales are 1 to 3 for both potential and performance. in my case, the company decided to go with a scale of 1 to 4 for performance and 1 to 3 for potential, so I cannot really place the employees properly as it is not 3x3 - it is 4x3. I can say that for performance 1 and 2 should be considered 'low'. However, I also have an issue with placing because when let's say someone is at 1 potential and 1 performance, they would not be visible in the grid - I think in some cases there is a calibration such as multiplying both sides by a coefficient but not sure how to do it when scales are different...Thanks so much for any ideas you may have

Thanks - my challenge is that simply put, I know where employees should be placed in the 9 boxes according to the rate of their potential and performance if those are rated low, medium, high as per attached file. However, in my example since one dimension is rated from 1 to 4 and the other dimension is rated from 1 to 3, I am having a hard time designing the formula that will automatically place the employees in the right boxes on the 9 box quadrant. pls see attached - perhaps it is a bit better explained - apologies, I am not sure I clarified. thanks again!

hi all, I managed to design the table but now only a few of the employees appear in the chart ... I am unable to add all employees. Is there a limit maybe to the number of items with data labels that can be plotted in the 9 box? also if I look at the calculation it seems that the employees that do not show in the chart are those for which the values are over 3.0 so maybe I am making an error in calculation?

the potential is evaluated on a scale of 1-3 and the performance on a scale of 1 to 4
if potential is 2 and performance is 3 ... total 5 (if no take care of scale)
if only notice value 5 could plot in many possible 'boxes'
... because potential could be 1-4 and performance could be 1-4 ( but total value max 5)
( eg potential = 1 and performance = 4 or potential = 4 and performance = 1 ... plots in different 'box' )
refer to Your used Excel-file as in #8 Reply.
... and
... You should give those values with Excel-file!

vletm thank you very much for your help. Actually I solved the problem of the 4 and 3 so now I only have 3 and 3. The problem is though what I described in my previous note - the calculation seems to be wrong as some values go over 3 and thus are not plotted in the 9 box - do you know a fix for this issue? thanks again!

It would be good sometimes read replies ...
I wrote twice - what You should do ... and so on.
... seem that I should give You a sample ... which would fix this thread ...
I do read messages - it is not what I was asking. The question is more complex and the attached did not solve the issue, but thanks anyway for your help. I will not take any more of the time of this forum. Regards

Is Your 'more complex' question is still
How do I plot them on a 9-box?
as written in #1 reply?
or what?
or
If You have change You question
to get 'Performance' & 'Potiential' to get value with scale from 1 to 9

... then above would show that!
Hint: Without Your replies ... this will be a double monologue.
