To rank only visible cells, you can apply a formula.

Select a cell that you want to place the ranking result, type this formula =SUM(IF(SUBTOTAL(103,OFFSET($A$2:$A$8,ROW($A$2:$A$8)-ROW($A$2),0,1))>0,IF(A2<$A$2:$A$8,1)))+1, press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys, then drag auto fill handle down to fill this formula to the cells.

In the formula, A2 are the first cell you want to rank, A2:A8 is the range you want to rank.

    The above Rank only visible cells tip is awesome, Thank you, but CHALLENGE... How do you add excluding zeros to the array formula. I can't seem to get the syntax right to do both Visible and Non-Zero, in one array formula.
