# Rank Function Ignoring Only Zero Values

Sep 12, 2013
I'm trying to rank the values in row 94 while ignoring only zero values and including positive and negative values. I'd like the function to rank the values in descending order, beginning with the most positive value and ending with the most negative value while ignoring all zeros. The function I've come up with so far ranks the positive values correctly and ignores the zeros, but the negative values are ranked as if they come after all of the zero values instead of being ranked immediately after the smallest positive value. Is there a way to fix the function below to make it do what I want?

=IF(D94=0,"",RANK(D94,$D$94:$AY$94,0))

Any way to automatically "rank" cells, ignoring any hidden rows? I don't even really need Excel to sort for me (although I wouldn't be opposed to that), but I'd like the first non-hidden cell in column A to always say "1" and the second one to say "2" and so on.

The back story, if you need it: I have a spreadsheet that tracks sales for 2 separate brands. I've created a macro and linked it to a listbox, so that you can choose which brand you want to view and Excel will hide all rows that aren't pertaining to that brand (I'm absurdly proud of that accomplishment). The only problem is the rankings are hard-coded, so when you hide one brand the rankings no longer make sense.

Every Monday I sort the items by the most recent week's sales and rank them from there. The addition of a second brand is obviously new to my little spreadsheet!

What I am trying to do is give the rank in column D based on the values in columns B and C. Some of the values in column B will have then same rank, and as such I want to add further criteria on which to rank them. I would first like to rank the values in column B and then rank the values in column C, which should give the rank in column D. For example Dog and Frog have the same value of 400 from the Non UK column. Therefore, rather than having these as both rank 1, I want them to be ranks 1 and 2, so want to add another criteria (UK). As Dog is greater than Frog in the UK (i.e. 10>7), I would like to rank Dog as 1 and Frog as 2. Goat will be ranked as 3 because it had the thrid highest value in the Non UK.

ABCD

1Non UKUKRank

2Cat20055

3Dog400101

4Eel200114

5Frog40072

6Goat30023

I'm trying to rank the values in cells S32:S38 in ascending order while ignoring zeros and negative values. I also need to rank duplicate values with a unique ranking, so that no ranking value is repeated. I tried the formula below, but the ranking values start at "2" instead of "1" and I can't figure out how to fix it.

Formula:

I'm building a sales tracking list and I have empty rows between each entry to allow easier viewing of the data. When I add the empty row to act as a "visual space" between line entries, auto filter only sees the first line of text and not all 400 rows separated by empty rows.

I'm at my wits end trying to make a workday formula work, but am having no luck. I've searched the other posts, but did not quite find a match. I'm trying to subtract a number of days from a workday function, but it seems to bypass ignoring the weekends (as is supposed to be done automatically with Workday). Here's the formula I'm trying to use:

=WORKDAY(H5,L5,' Reference Info'!$E$110:$E$117)-(I5/8)

I5/8 is a column with hours - this just calculates a number of days to subtract based on the number of scheduled hours.

The formula will calculate, but it still ignores weekends. I've tried burying the I5/8 within the parenthesis, moving it around in the formula,

I am dumping data out of SAP, including the following fields:

* Vendor

* Material

* PO #

* Qty

* Amt

* Date

I would like to concatenate the material and vendor and pull in the PO # for the most recent date.

The VLOOKUP part is easy on the material/vendor, but I haven't had any luck in integrating a MAX, LARGE or RANK function to pull in the PO corresponding to the most recent date.

Once the PO # associated with the most current date can be identified for the material/vendor combination, I will need to utilize another vlookup to match the PO # up against a separate data file to pull in pricing. If anyone can think of a way to accomplish this in one step as opposed to multiple formulas.

I need to use the rank function to get the position of each item in a list based on its corresponding Revenue. However, the range that has the revenue numbers also contains a percentage related to that item. Basically, I need to use RANK based on a list that ignores any elements which are <= 1.

I have a line graph that charts certain data per day in a month.

During the weekend there is no data. The graph however considers the number as zero, and I want it to just "skip" that day and plot the line directly from the friday date to the monday, instead of the line touching zero on saturday's and sundays.

Is it possible to do this? Or am I forced to adapt my table to only include days of the week?

I am trying to break ties in the Rank function.

Example worksheet attached.

I have an eight digit number (a digit can show up more than once) and determine the rank of the sum of each number. I had the ties broken by whatever digit showed up first.

In the following example, June 13th row showed 6 digits tied for second place and the tie was broken by the order in which the digit show up in the range.

On the June 14th row it showed digit 4 and 5 tied with 3 occurrence each (running total for the two days). But digit 4 came in twice that day, and reach a total 3 first before digit 5, but Rank2 shows that digit 5 was ranked first, which should of been digit 4.

I am using the RANK function to rank the data in several rows. There are some times ties in the result.

I want to break that tie by taking the greatest value in a different cell in that row

Greatest value wins the tie.

same situation if there are multiple ties (4 "RANK"'s of position 2) ...

In the RANK() function I can rank a value depending on one set of values (one condition), but when you SORT data you can choose a second (and a third) condition.

Is there a way to RANK with two sets of values (two conditions)?

I am trying to rank a list of numbers, such as:

1

3

5

3

4

1

I have no problem with the rank function in terms of the ties showing as duplicate values, however, when this occurs I would like a "T-" to appear before ranks that are tied, and show nothing if they are not tied. Essentially, I want the final result to look like this, without having to manually add the "T-" after the ranking is complete.

1 T-5 3 T-3 5 1 3 T-3 4 2 1 T-5

I have done more complex Excel formulas before, but for some reason this is stumping me.

why this returns a #Value! error?

{=RANK(MAX(IF(MOD(ROW(F3:F9),2)=0,F3:F9)),IF(MOD(ROW(F3:F9),2)=0,F3:F9,E1),1)}

I just used the even row selector as an example.

MAX(IF(MOD(ROW(F3:F9),2)=0,F3:F9)) returns 203 and IF(MOD(ROW(F3:F9),2)=0,F3:F9,E1) returns {0;47;0;203;0;"A";0}

when you press F9.

If I change the range to exclude the non-numeric value I get the same error (it shouldn't matter according to the help file as non-numeric values are ignored).

I am a meteorologist and I keep track of my forecaster's monthly statistics. One area I track is percentage of warnings issued with desired lead time. I calculate and rank the individuals by percentages.

Example:

Forecaster A: 3 of 4 75% Rank 1

Forecaster B: 1 of 2 50% Rank 2

Forecaster C: 0 of 3 0% Rank 3

Or if ties:

Forecaster A: 6 of 6 100% Rank 1

Forecaster B: 3 of 3 100% Rank 1

Forecaster C: 1 of 2 50% Rank 3

Is there a way in Excel in case of ties, to award a higher rank (1) to the individual who went 100%, 6 for 6, compared to the individual who also earned 100%, but only 3 of 3.

More reward for more chances and opportunities.

I have 3 columns, A B C: Distribution Center, Sales, and Top Ranked. What I am trying to get is a Rank function in the Top Ranked column that looks for the highest value in the Sales column, but returns the Distribution Center associated with this Sales value instead of the actual value. I could get this done with some helper columns and a VLOOKUP, but the report is rather large and the VLOOKUP not only slows it down but also pushes the file size over the limit. Also, I will be using this for metrics other than Sales where I'll be looking for the highest and lowest figures, so if a Max or Min function works better, that would be fine. I just haven't been able to figure out how to have it return the associated data instead of the ranked data.

i have a function ("function1") that takes a range as an input:

What I have is a spreadsheet with a whole bunch of sporting data on it. see attachment for an idea of the layout, Stats.jpg

In these data each round a player is given a rating. What I want to do is calculate is the average rating for each player across the last 3 and 5 games they have played. When a player misses a game they get a rating of 0 for the round. I want 0 ratings to be ignored in the running averages. Additionally, games yet to be played have a 0 in the cell and should be ignored. To get overall averages ignoring 0's was simple I used the averageif function, but I couldn't figure out how to use that but only extract the last 3 non 0 values. I currently have data up to round 12, so if a player has played in 12, 11 and 10 then the 3 round average should just be the average of these 3, but if they missed for example round 11 then the 3 round average should return the average of 9, 10 and 12.

The data is set out in the following way.

In column B I have a list of player names from cells B3:B618.

Across row 1 from N1:AM1 are labels "round 1" "round 2" etc.

The ratings for each player in each round are in N-AM and from 3-618. i.e. N3:AM3 contains the weekly rating for player 1, 4 contains player 2 etc.

I would like the 3 round averages to be returned for each player in column L and 5 round averages in column M.

I have created a drop down cell based on the cells in the first row of a particular table. Now when i select a particular cell from the drop down i want to fetch all the values in the respective column of the selected cell on to a different group of cells. While fetching the data to those group of cells, i want to ignore all the null, blank cells. All this actions shall be automated and shall happen simultaneously on selecting the drop down.

I have to correct a spreadsheet that takes a bunch of values and creates an average.

=average(N15;N29;N43;N57;N71;N85;N99;N113;N127;N141;N155;N169;N183;

N197;N211;N225;N241;N255;N269;N283;N301;N315;N329;N343;N357)*100%

I didn't create this. Anyway, the problem is that most of these cells will be empty unless a whole bunch of other stuff is filled. These N cells take several values, put them together and create a new one. As time goes by they are filled. While they aren't filled, they'll return the DIV/0 error.

So when that formula I pasted there uses all of these values, it also returns a DIV/0 error because it is getting info from cells that have this error.

I managed to correct that with this

=averageif(N15:N357;"<>#DIV/0!")*100%

It works like a charm save for one problem. When I use averageif I'm forced to use an interval. Along this interval other values show up (it is always a value ranging from 0 to 2). So when the formula works its magic the results are slightly skewed because of this other value that I don't want.

So I figure there must be two ways around this. The first one would be using something like averageif that lets me use several handpicked cells instead of an interval. If I try

=averageif(N15;N29;N43;N57;N71;N85;N99;N113;N127;N141;N155;N169;N183;

N197;N211;N225;N241;N255;N269;N283;N301;N315;N329;N343;N357;"<>#DIV/0!")*100%

It doesn't work, it says I have too many values. So if I could the exact same thing as I did with averageif but keeping all of these values it'd be super nice.

The other solution, less nice but equally effective I guess, is using this same interval but having more than one criteria. The first criteria would still be the one telling it to ignore DIV/0 error, the second criteria would be the one to ignore any values equal or lower than 2.

If the value in B2:B11 is X, then that value is excluded from the ranking.

I am trying to basically do:

I need to average the columns of data and ignore both hidden rows and zero values. I have tried writing if statements as well as the subtotal function. Both functions either ignore null values or hidden rows but not both.

The system wont let me update a sample workbook but Im wondering whether there is a formula or combo formula for this.

I have a spread sheet where there are multiple rows of price quotes from different suppliers.

Some suppliers have quoted, some however have not and there is a "#N/A" or "no bid".

SupplierA

SupplierB

SupplierC

SupplierD

1.3

No Bid

2.3

No Bid

How can I get a conditional format to check each row for the lowest numeric bid, highlight it but ignore the text?? What I have tried so far doesn't work.

=G31=MAX($G$31:$J$31)

This does not seem to work, I don't know how to exclude the text values from the MAX function.

Using formula, how do I rank

CAM100-24

COM98-21

CAM100-18

CAM27-37

COM121-5

COM98-23

so it first sorts in alphabetical order using the string before the "-" i.e. CAM27 comes before CAM100, and then by the biggest 'secondary values' (the value after the "-") so that COM98-23 comes before COM98-21?
