How to quickly rank a list by a specific value in Excel?
With the common formula =RANK(CELL,RANGE) will rank a value in a range, but if you only want to rank values based on a specific value, how can you solve it? For instance, only rank the imports of Apple as below screenshot shown. In this article, I will talk about the method to quickly handle it in Excel.
Here is a formula that can quickly rank data based on a value.
Select a blank cell which you will place the ranking at, a type this formula =IF(A2="Apple",COUNTIFS(A$2:A$12,"Apple",B$2:B$12,">"&B2)+1,""), press Enter key, and then drag autofill handle to apply this formula to other cells.
In the formula, A2 and A2:A12 are the first cell and the list you want to look for the specific value, B2:B12 is the list containing data you want to rank.
