List Lowest 3 Variable Numbers In Descending Order

Oct 15, 2012

I have a list of numbers in cells A1:A10, these numbers change frequently. I would like to set up a formula to calculate the 3 lowest values from those numbers and list the three lowest values in cells J1:J3, with lowest value on J1 and the highest of the 3 values in J3.

I know I can use the small/large functions for this, but im not sure how to work it out to use just the 3 lowest values.

About descending and related to each others, I mean for example : #700 in column A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H places in the same row and the same happen to #1533.954 and others. About the numbers that are The One ( like 549.894), I need to put them in its column and a new row with empty cells in its other columns. In the end i want a table like this:

I have a column (B) of randomly generated numbers 1-14, and am using this formula range to sort in descending order and return the relevant value from column (c).

=VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,1),B3:C20,2,) to =VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,14),B3:C20,2,)

Works great, except when a number is duplicated, (E.G. 14,13,13,12,11,10,10,9,8 etc). It then returns the first value from(C) repeated, and not the value from the second and subsequent duplicated reference numbers.

I am trying to generate a list of the 5 highest and 5 lowest numbers from a list of scores that range from 1 to 10. I have found the highest and lowest absolute values (numbers over 7.5, and less than 5, out of 10), but I would also like to generate the 5 highest and lowest relative numbers, ie. if there are no scores over 7.5, then the 5 next highest numbers. I have used if/then formulas for the absolute highest and lowest numbers, and a rank/countif formula to rank them. I have no idea how to generate a list of the "relative strengths and weaknesses".

I'm running a workbook that has a list of all the runs for a day, and several daily driver sheets that automatically copy and order the drops using vlookup.

If you look at run 1 on the run listing you will see that holmfirth is the first drop and sandbach is the last drop.

This is also the case on page 1, as it should be.

However, on run 7 you will see that the first drop is Edinburgh and the last drop is Biggar. The problem is that on the run listing form, we sort the run backwards so that it is loaded onto the trunk wagon backwards, then the load is tran-shipped (swapped) to the delivery wagon (dont ask) and the last drop on the trunk wagon (Biggar on the front end) becomes the first drop(on the back end) on the delivery wagon now in the correct delivery order. I need the daily sheet (page 7) to reflect the fact that Biggar is the first drop and Edinburgh is the last drop.

Don't know if macro is better, but I would like to try it with function

I have 2 sheets.

Sheet 1 Column A: Name Column B: Points

Exemple: Name Points Mary 40 Johnny 20 Erick 60 Ralph 30

I want Sheet 2 to get data from Sheet 1 and sort by descending order automatically.

Then it should be

Sheet 2

Name Points Erick 60 Mary 40 Ralph 30 Johnny 20

I don't want to do it manually every time I change some value; I want it to do automatically; so if I change, for example, Erick's points from 60 to 10 in Sheet 1, Erick should appear on the last place in Sheet 2, with his new value (10)

I'm using a table with columns from A to F and an unlimited number of rows. Note that there is a title at the top of each column. -I'd like my datas in column F to be automatically sorted in descending order from top to bottom when I hit the enter key or when the number is entered in last column (column F). -the the entire row of data needs to be sorted according to the sorting criteria of column F ( datas entered need to stay on the same row) -the macro should validate that the number value entered in column F is the same as the number value entered in column A. (to make sure that there was no typing mistake) -Result in column D must be the difference between the corresponding value in column B and C (B-C=D) *The next couple of constraints are not absolutely required, i'd like to have them only if it's possible to add constraints with filling color: -Whenever there is no value entered in column C on a specific row I'd like the entire row to be colored in yellow (fill color) -IF a number is entered in column C, and that the result of B-C in column D is not equal to zero, I'd like this specific row to be filled in Red. -when all the values are entered in a row from column A to F and that the result of B minus C is equal to Zero in column D, i'd like this specific row to be filled in a green color. ***in other words, the datas in each rows from column A to F will be entered on 2 occasions; on the first time, only the datas in column A,B and F will be entered (so basically after entering this set of values the row should be filled in yellow. the second time, the remaining values will be added to the rows, so at this time A,B,C,D,E and F will all be entered. when this is done there will be two options 1-the value in column D is equal to Zero then the entire row should be filled in green or 2-the value in column D is'nt equal to zero, then this specific row should be filled in red.

Keep in mind that the datas of a row should be automatically sorted only when the value in column F is entered or when the enter key is hitted to add a new row.

I'm being asked to report on some survey findings containing 60 questions for my company. I've rated all 11 departments from 1st to 11th place for each question.

I want to be able to display a graph showing which departments came first, second and third and also where my department came - in the example of the first question, 7th.

What I'd like is a bar graph (ideally) without any values on the Y axis, the department name along the X axis and text labels at the top of each bar showing the position (ie. 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th).

The problem is that if I produce a graph from the following table:

Dept 1 - 1 Dept 2 - 2 Dept 3 - 3 My dept - 7

..then it produces a bar graph with bars in the opposite direction; ie the best department having the smallest bar.

I could just reverse the figures with 11 being the best instead of 1, but then the text labels on top of each bar are wrong. I know I could just label the correct figures by hand with text boxes, but I have 60 of these things to produce!

The closest I came was using the reverse values and having a custom text format to replace the numbers with the opposite text values ie. 11="1st";10="2nd"; but I couldn't get that to work

i have tried: =VLOOKUP(TODAY()-7,A2:M2000,3) to return data that corresponds to a date 1 week ago. Unfortunatley, it does not work because my dates in the array are in descending order. The order cannot be changed... is there another function I can use to return the value I am looking for?

I have a macro built that sorts my data by column in descending order depending on what column of information is selected from the drop down menu.

However I need the macro to sort column F in ascending order, and continue to sort the other colulmns in descending order when selected.

I can't get my macro to switch the sort from descending to ascending order for this one column. Looking to see if this is possible, and if so what macro formula I would use.

Here is what the macro i am currently using:

Sub ddSort_Click() Dim iDdSortVal As Integer Dim CurrSheet As String Dim lFirstSectionRow As Long Dim lLastSectionRow As Long Dim strCol As String Dim lRptHeaderRow As Long Dim iRptMeasColumn As Integer

Find the sorting method of dates in excel 2010. I have dates in one column and i want to sort it, but I am not able to sort in ascending or descending order.

I'm fairly new to using excel and have been trying to create a simple spreadsheet that keeps track of scores and automatically displays the names of the players in descending order. Anyway I have gotten to the point of using hookup to match a value and return that players name. But when two players have the same score it will only return the first found value. I sort the number scores using a LARGE function and it works great. Then I use something like this =HLOOKUP(Y2,B27:K28,2,FALSE) to match that value with the players name. How to return the other players name when the scores are the same?

- I have a list of 8 digit numbers in Column A sorted small to large - Some of the 8 digit numbers are duplicated. - In Column B I would like to have more of a combination of countif and listing the duplicates in order (1 for the first dup in the column, 2 for the 2nd, etc.)

Example of what I'd like to see

Column A Column B 123456781 123456782 132546841 685036541 985413561 985413562 985413563

As you can see if the number in column A is on the list one time column B would show a 1If the number is shown two times (the first time it shows up will show a 1 the second will show a 2) If the number is shown 3 times (the first time it shows up will show a 1 the second will show a 2, the third tiem would show a 3)

Is it possible to make excel sort ascending or descending but from mid way through alphabet and then loop through the alphabet again. for example. If Cell A1 had "A" in, it would sort as normal.

Cell A1 = A Cell A2 = B Cell A3 = C Cell A4 = D Cell A5 = E

If Cell A1 had "C" in, it would sort from "C" through the alphabet and then loop to the start of the alphabet as shown below.

Cell A1 = C Cell A2 = D Cell A3 = E Cell A4 = A Cell A5 = B

Trying to arrange numerical values in order from lowest to highest in a column i have a code to do that but i need it to be able to but to a range in the column so it only sorts the values in rows 3 - 60 not all of the rows in the column

Sub Testsort() Range("A3").CurrentRegion.Select Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A3"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _ OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _ DataOption1:=xlSortNormal End Sub

1) How do make values on x-axis as words? E.g. apples, oranges, etc.

2) Is it possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order? If I can figure out 1), I can do this as well, but it would be nice to know if it is possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order.

I have A bunch of numbers going up to 4.0 from 0.0 how can i get it so that it takes the number and the name beside it and buts it in a colume from 1 to ..... complete ex) David 1.5 Jon 3.5 Sally 4.0 Susan 3.24 Fred 2.99

I am looking for a way to find a highest (and/or) lowest value in a list of numbers. The list keeps getting longer and after a certain point I will need the 2 highest (or lowest), then the 3 highest (or lowest). I know MIN and MAX will find the high and low, but how do I find the 2nd highest, etc?

I know this is probably really easy to do but I am new with excel. I have a list of 8 numers in 8 cells and was able to find the lowest. But now I need to take the list and subtract the lowest number from the second lowest and have the difference dispay in the target cell.

I have a series of numbers in cells B2 to G2. The maximum value of each of these columns is found in B5 to G5. Is there a formula that will calculate the percentage of each of the values in row 2 (B2 to G2) and tell me which is the lowest number based on the percentage? Example...

I am doing a Golf scorecard but I have been having trouble figuring out how to calculate the last 6 lowest scores in a series of about 30 scores. What formula to use? Series looks like this

I have a list in rows where I have a ranking formula =COUNT($G$5:$G$81)-(RANK(G5,$G$5:$G$81)+ COUNTIF($G$5:G5,G5)-1)+1 When I sort the rank, ascending. All of the unique numbers sort ascending, but the non-unique numbers sort descending

Sheet one has dates, my prices on each of those days, and the fields h1 h2 h3 h4 (h1 is the closest higher number, h2 is the next closet higher number, etc.) and l1 l2 l3 l4 (l1 is the closest lower number, etc. etc.)

Sheet two has certain dates and prices of a competitor's prices.

What I'm trying to do is two things (see attached): 1) find the four closest higher and four closest lower prices (if available) 2) use only the prices that are on or before the date in question.

I've tried combinations like LARGE and OFFSET and so far it is not getting me anywhere.
