I need to use the rank function to get the position of each item in a list based on its corresponding Revenue. However, the range

that has the revenue numbers also contains a percentage related to that item. Basically, I need to use RANK based on a list that

ignores any elements which are <= 1. Any ideas'

Thx in advance !

- Hi!
Try this:

Range to rank is A1:A20

Enter this formula in B1 and copy down to B20:

=IF(A1>1,SUMPRODUCT(--($A$1:$A$20>1),--(A1<$A$1:$A$20))+1,"")

- Hi!
- I couldn't get that to work in my spreadsheet. My list is in row 6 and is horizontal. The list contains elements which are both
percentages and integers. I need to rank the integers only and ignore the percentages. The sumproduct example gave a couple of close

answers but none were correct (I adjusted for the horizontal list and for using the correct element instead of "A1").

It works for me either vertically or horizonatally.

Cells formatted as Percentage are <1 unless the percentage is >=100%.

Can you post some examples and point out which values you want ranked and

which you want excluded?

- This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
- Hi,
The reason your formula works for you is that I have not done an adequate job of articulating the problem, therefore you are not

testing your formula on a sample that is representative of my worksheet.

With regard to your formula, some of the percentages are 100%, but nevertheless, I tinkered with it and I tried it on various items

in the list and got erratic and incorrect results. The formula is below the integer, not the percentage, so the value being tested

for <= 1 is always going to be greater than 1. The formula needs to test the list as a whole and not include the values <=1 in the

rank. The list row includes 2 adjacent cells for each company to be ranked, and the companies are listed accross the worksheet from

left to right. The left cell for each company is the integer (audit fee) and the right cell is the percentage (an unrelated value

for ranking purposes). The formula to yield the rank is directly below the integer for each company. I need for the values <=1 to be

ignored, but I don't want that to cause the integer to the left of it to be ignored along with it. Every integer has a percentage

associated with it in the cell next to it. I hope this helps to explain better.

Thanks to anybody who attempts to solve this delimma. It seems simple but is harder than it looks (or I would not be writing).!

Having looked at the sample data you posted, then Biff's formula

transposed to deal with a row rather than a column, works absolutely

fine for me too.

- Hi
- If I could send you my pared-down worksheet which contains the actual formulas and actual list, you could better understand why it
doesn't work. I am not doing a good enough job expressing the situation. Biff's formula, assuming Biff intends for A1 to be changed

to reflect the cell immediately above the formula, will test the integer to see if it is greater than 1. All of the integers are

greater than 1 in my rank list. Unfortunately, my rank list also includes percentages which need to be excluded from consideration

in the ranking process. It is just a pain in the butt that the percentages are on the same row with the data to be ranked. If the

percentages were removed, then a simple RANK function would do the job. In the actual worksheet, I cannot exclude any of my integers

just because there is a percentage next to it. I need to rank my integers one thru twenty-nine (that is how many companies there

are). Each company occupies 2 adjacent, horizontal cells that are integer on the left and percentage on the right. The formulas are

directly under the integer cells and therefore have a blank cell between each ranking formula (left to right). My worksheet contains

no code or viruses. If you want to see it, I will be more than happy to send it. I'm guessing your email is as shown but without the

"NOSPAM" portion?

- If I could send you my pared-down worksheet which contains the actual formulas and actual list, you could better understand why it
- Another person came up with a formula that is close to working. I am writing because I neglected to mention a fact about my WS which
I didn't consider relevant. There is a blank column between each integer and associated %, then another blank column before the next

company to the right. In his solution, the blank columns made a big difference. Biff's solution still wouldn't work for me though,

even when I deleted the extra columns

- Hi
Having logged on today, I can see that Biff sent you a subsequent

message offering for you to send the file to him.

No doubt you have it resolved now. If not, by all means send me the

file.

- Hi
- I got a solution in another forum that was very simple but apparently not as simple as my brain. It has a flaw in that it will not
work correctly if 2 or more audit fees (the integers) are identical. However, I was doing the research on this for someone else who

doesn't have a clue, and who informed me that there will never be 2 identical audit fees on the worksheet. With that info, I used

the simple solution and called it a day. I appreciate your help very much. If I thought this situation was likely to come up again,

I would send you the answer they provided for me. However, most of the time, if a person needs a rank, they will be flexible enough

to move the extra garbage out of the way and let the function work as designed instead of making employees jump through

time-consuming hoops just to allow them to keep percentages on the same row as the data being ranked. In any case, I have moved on

and deleted the file from my PC (after sending it back to the person with the problem).

Thanks again !

Richard

Yep, a "good" design can save all kinds of headaches!

However, the fact is, Rank is not a very fexible function!
