To rank values excluding subtotal, you need a helper column.
1. Select a blank cell next to the value you want to rank, type 1 into it, then drag auto fill handle down to fill series numbers until meeting the subtotal value. see screenshot:
2. Then go to the next value you want to rank to continue filling the series numbers, and repeat this step to fill all values you want to rank with series numbers. See screenshot:
3. Then you can rank the values excluding subtotals. Select a blank cell, E2, type this formula, =IF(N(D2),RANK(C2,$C$2:$C$16,1),"") (C2 is the cell that you want to rank, D2 is the series number, C2:C16 is the list of values you want to rank), and then drag fill handle down to the cells which need to apply this formula. See screenshot:
If you want to rank values in descending order, you can use this formula=IF(N(E2),RANK(E2,$E$2:$E$16),""), E2:E16 is the range contains the formula =IF(N(D2),RANK(C2,$C$2:$C$16,1),"").
