Exclusive checkboxes and calculations in Word 2010

    I am creating a form in Word 2010 which works out quite well. Now I am
    trying to do some advanced things which I don't know how to start.

    I have two questions in the form (actually I have a few more, but
    let's keep the example easy); both of them have two checkboxes for
    "yes" and "no" assigned; each answer has a value assigned, say 2 for
    "yes" to question 1, 7 for "no" to question 1, 3 for "yes" to question
    2 and 4 for "no" to question 2. These values should be summed up. So
    if you answer "yes" to question 1 (2 points) and "yes" to question 2
    (3 points), you would get 5 points

    Now I want to do the following things:
    1. Make the "yes"/"no" exclusive per question, ie. if you answer
    "yes", "no" will be unchecked and the other way around.
    2. Automatically sum up the points and display them at a place (text
    field?) later in the document.

    Can you help me with one or both of these questions?
    Bernd
