Normally we can apply the Rank function and return the rank number easily in Excel.
Select a blank cell, enter the formula =RANK("84",B2:B23) into it, and press the Enter key. See screen shot:
Note: in the formula of =RANK("84",B2:B23), 84 is your score, and B2:B23 is the score range you want to rank your score in, and you can change them based on your needs.
Sometimes your score may be duplicate with others in the score range as left screenshot shown. If you want to rank your score and return the top rank number in Excel, you can do as following:
Select a blank cell, enter the formula =RANK.EQ("84",B2:B23) into it, and press the Enter key.
(1) In the formula of =RANK.EQ("84",B2:B23), 84 is your score, and B2:B23 is the score range you want to rank your score in, and you can change them based on your needs.
(2) For ranking duplicate values and returning the average rank, please apply this formula =RANK.AVG("84",B2:B23).
(3) Both formulas do not work in Excel 2007.
If you have Kutools for Excel installed, you can easily batch rank duplicate values in Excel. Please do as follows:
1. Select the range you will rank duplicates, and click Kutools > Content > Advanced Combine Rows. See screenshot below:
2. In the opening Advanced Combine Rows dialog box, Pease (see screenshot above):
(1) Select the column with duplicates (in our case select the Score column) and click the Primary Key;
(2) Select the column you will combine ( in our case select the Name column) and click the Combine > Comma.
And now all names with same score are combined into the same cell as below screenshot shown.
3. Select the column (Score column in our case) you will rank, and click Data > Sort Largest to Smallest or Sort Smallest to Largest, and then check the Expand the selection option and click the Sort button in the Sort Warning dialog box. See screenshots below:
