Rank on two columns

Here I have a formula that can quickly rank on two columns

Select a blank cell which you will place the ranking result, for instance, D2, and type this formula =RANK(B2,$B$2:$B$7)+SUMPRODUCT(--($B$2:$B$7=$B2),--(C2<$C$2:$C$7)), press Enter key, and then drag fill handle over the cells which use this formula.
