Rank values by group

arrow blue right bubble Rank values by group

There is a formula to quickly rank values based on group.

Select a blank cell next to the data, C2 for instance, type this formula, =SUMPRODUCT(($A$2:$A$11=A2)*(B2<$B$2:$B$11))+1 then drag autofill handle down to apply this formula to the cells you need.

In the formula, A2:A11 is the range containing the group values, A2 is the first cell in the list of group values, B2 is the first cell in the list which needed to rank, B2:B11 is the list that contains values needed to rank.

    This is EXCEL-lent (see what I did there?)! Now that you have the rankings by group, how do you find out % from #1 rank within the group? For example, Group A has record 100 as #1, and record 93 as #3 ranked. If I wanted to add another column to find out how far off in percentage record #3 (93) is from record #1 (100), what is the formula to achieve this? The result should be rank #1 is 0%, and rank #3 is 7% off ((100/93)-1) from rank #1
