## How to rank range numbers uniquely without duplicates in Excel?

In Microsoft Excel, the normal rank function gives duplicate numbers the same rank. For example, if the number 100 appears twice in the selected range, and the first number 100 takes the rank of 1, the last number 100 will also take the rank of 1, and this will skip some numbers. But, sometimes, you need to rank these values uniquely as following screenshots shown. For more details of the unique ranking, please do as following tutorial shown step by step.

#### **Rank range numbers uniquely in descending order**

In this section, we will show you how to rank range numbers uniquely in descending order.
