To convert cardinal number to ordinal number, there is no direct way to solve in Excel, but now I tell you a Defined Function to help you.

1. Press Alt and F11 keys at the same time to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Application window.

2. Then click Insert > Module and copy the follow VBA into the Module window.

VBA: Convert cardinal number to ordinal number.

Function Addth(pNumber As String) As String
'Updateby20141027
Select Case CLng(VBA.Right(pNumber, 1))
    Case 1
    Addth = pNumber & "st"
    Case 2
    Addth = pNumber & "nd"
    Case 3
    Addth = pNumber & "rd"
    Case Else
    Addth = pNumber & "th"
End Select
Select Case VBA.CLng(VBA.Right(pNumber, 2))
    Case 11, 12, 13
    Addth = pNumber & "th"
End Select
End Function

3. Save the code and close the window, and type this formula =Addth(C2) into a blank cell (cell C2 is the cell that you want to convert to ordinal number), then press Enter key. And if you need, you can drag the autofill handle to fill the range cells to apply the formula.

Now you can see the cardinal numbers are converted to ordinal numbers.
