    Rank of a number (2003)

    How do I return the RANK of number in a NON-sorted list. Using the RANK function only works correctly if the numbers are sorted ascending or descending. What if the numbers in a column are not sorted?

    Thanks,

    Yanis

    Hi,
    The rank function works whether your list is sorted or not. The optional third parameter only determines whether the rank is done in ascending or descending order - i.e. whether the lowest or highest number is ranked 1.
