Here I introduce some formulas to quickly rank cells which are not adjacent in Excel.

Copy any one of below formulas, paste to a cell which you want to show the ranking, and then drag auto fill handle down to the cells that needed the formula

=RANK(D1,($D$2,$D$4,$D$8,$D$10))

=IF(ISNA(RANK(D1,($D$2,$D$4,$D$8,$D$10))),"",RANK(D1,($D$2,$D$4,$D$8,$D$10)))

You can see only the cells you need have been ranked.

In the formula, D1 is the first cell of the list you want to rank, D2,D4,D8 and D10 are the cells you want to rank.

If there are multiple non continuous ranges needed to rank, the above formulas will be too long to apply, in this case, you can give the ranges a Range Name, and then apply the Rank function.

1. Hold Ctrl key to select all ranges you want to rank, go to the Name box, type a name you want, press Enter key. See screenshot:

2. Then go to the cell you want to place the ranking result, type this formula =RANK(A1,Rank) (A1 is the first cell of the list you want to rank, Rank is the Range Name you specify), fill auto handle down to the cells you want to apply this formula. Now only the cells you need have been ranked.
