# Ranking Formula Not Working Properly

Oct 25, 2009

I have 6 categories that need to be ranked 1-6 in order of highest number of occurances. My ranking formula is showing 1-7, missing number 3. I have attached a sample worksheet further showing what I am trying to explain. I need cell A3 to show a ranking of "3". Currently it shows "4". What am I doing wrong??

## Calculating Formula Not Working Properly

Nov 15, 2008

I am trying to work out an excel workbook for calculating family recipes. I have gotten most of it figured out but am having a problem with one thing. When the serving size of an item is 8 oz & the recipe calls for 14.5 oz the only way I can get it to work properly is to enter 1.75 in the serving size.

But I would like (actually need) to be able to enter the 14.5 and have it calculate the calories correctly - since sometimes the amount to be added to the recipe may be 15 ounces and the serving size is 8 ounces etc....

## Rank Formula Not Working Properly

Oct 7, 2009

I have a rank formula that is seemingly erroring out on certain cells - indiscriminately. I have tried and tried to figure this out for myself but this is beyond my knowledge.

Only on some cells is the rank not working and returning a "-" (the error result).

I want the rank to use absolute numbers, so that it will rank according to variance or percentage (regardless of +/-). I am also using another cell (R1) to tell the rank what column to use.

As you can see there are a few entries, both + & -, that are not being included in the rank - for reasons beyond me.

## Sum With Offset Not Working Properly?

May 30, 2013

Total amount in Column B should same as shown in Column F

=IF(E3<>"",SUM(OFFSET(\$C3,ISTEXT(E3),,,1):C3),"")Above formula is calculating always two rows.

## Vlookup Not Working Properly

Apr 10, 2009

I have problem with vlookup. I am attaching my file.

## Sorting A-Z Not Working Properly

Sep 3, 2013

I am including an attached file for reference.

The file is sorted A-Z, but if you scroll down towards the bottom, you will see that some values are out of order. Both instances of University of Central Florida and University of North Dakota are out of place.

University of Central Florida should be between University of California and University of Colorado.

University of North Dakota should be between University of Colorado and University of Southern Mississippi.

## Chdir Not Working Properly

Feb 5, 2009

I have a really strange problem i have two different hard directories o: & u:

i have the following code linked to a command button

chdir "U: foldername foldername foldername"
saveactiveworkbook.saveas range("c9")

## Selection Not Working Properly

May 25, 2006

I try the following selection

Columns("B:AF").Select
Selection.ColumnWidth = 2.3

It is selecting columns a to af. Why would take column a if it is not part of select?

Dim Lst() As String
Dim I As Integer
Dim wname As Date
'Dim wmonth As Date

## MSForms.CommandButton Not Working Properly

Jan 29, 2009

I have a form with 2 buttons and a frame. Inside the frame I have another button. I get a Type Error Message when I run the code and I don't understand why.

## Exit Sub Property Is Not Working Properly!!

Jun 22, 2009

I have the following two codes on a userform, The first code performs two steps:

The first step is running the second code (MyDate), which is used for checking the entries in the userform textboxes and if there is any wrong entry a message box appears then it exits sub.

However, what happens when it finds any wrong entry is that it displays the msgbox and instead of exiting sub as it is requested in the (MyDate) code, it resumes running and moves to the second step and adds 1 to ComboBox1 ListIndex.

## Find Statement Not Working Properly

Apr 2, 2007

I am in the process of converting my programs over so as not to use these and I am already seeing a drastic difference in speed.

I have run into a problem that I need help with. I have a spreadsheet similar to the example below. The first column contains a list of college majors and after each major is a row of classes that are required by that major.

A25346 ENG101 MAT115 PSY150
A35678 ENG111 MAT115 SOC101
A23456 ENG101 MAT116 HIS201

The first thing I need to do is search down the first column for the major. Once the major is found I need to search across the row for the class. I am having trouble searching across a single row for the class.

Here is the section of code where I experience the problem

Set rMajor = wsMajor.Cells.Find(What:=Major, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False)

If Not rMajor Is Nothing Then
majorrow = rMajor.Cells.Offset(0, 1).Value............

## Cells Range Reference Not Working Properly

May 25, 2009

I often have problems with the cells range reference method. For some reason I get an error and can't tell why. Other times it works fine. Is this just an unstable method to use or is this completely wrong? I'm assuming I am using the wrong syntax. It is definetly the range reference causing the problem.

Dim cnt1 as integer, cnt2 as integer,cnt3 as integer

cnt1 = 2
cnt2 = 50
cnt3 = 2

dim myrange as range

set myrange = sheets("sheet1").range(cells(2,cnt1), cells(cnt2,cnt3))

I have no idea why it won't work. I'm basically searching a columner range of cells.

## VBA - Insert And Rename Columns Not Working Properly

Feb 21, 2013

The code below is supposed to insert a column and rename it. However, when I debug, the code only renames the column, it does split or run the loop. I press debug again, and then code executes as it is intended.

I can't explain why I have to press debug twice for in order for the code to work properly.

Code:
Sub renameColumns()
With Sheets("byPosition")

Columns("E:E").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
.Range("E1").Value = "Exemption"
.Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFit

[Code] .......

## Format Painter & Paste Not Working Properly

Jul 13, 2006

I've been working on a particular spreadsheet and I've just noticed that
double clicking the format painter will only format one cell. It won't
retain the format to be put into the next selected cell which it should when
its double clicked. The same goes for copy and paste. Normally once you've
copied something you can paste it into a number of cells individually, one
after the other, but after the first paste selection, the paste option is no
longer available. I can't see any settings under options to fix this. What has happened, and how do I fix it? (I'm using Excel 2003 SP1 - is there a SP2?)

## Using Autofilter And Multiple Criteria - Array Is Not Working Properly

Oct 12, 2012

I thought I had been able to use array to have more than two criterias with Autofilter, but now I am unable to make the following code work. What I am trying to do is have all the records that does not contain either N/A, S/O or xx and also have a filter on column 125 for the value "OUI".

VB:
Sub test()
Set ws1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("SOMMAIRE_EN_ALL")
Set ws2 = Workbooks("Fichier_central_2013_anglais_2_CLEAN").Sheets("DETAIL_CONCAT")
Set r = ws2.Range("A1:du4783")

## Macro Not Working Properly For Conversion Of Date Format?

Apr 13, 2014

In the attached sheet, one macro is developed which is not working properly. My req is to convert date from dd-mon-yyyy to yyyy/mm/dd format. (23-jan-2010--> 2010/01/23)

If incomplete date is there, then hyphen should place the gap i.e.

For date like APR-2014------> Output should be 2014/04/--
For date like 1998 -----> Output should be 1998/--/--

The below macro works only for row number 11, 15 and 16.

## Ensure Value Entered Into Textbox - Validation Not Working Properly

Jul 1, 2014

I'm using the following code to try to ensure a value is entered into a text box, but when I click over to the next text box skipping the first one entirely, I don't receive any message indicating the previous box is empty. I'm trying to make it so certain fields are required and others are optional. Here's the code I'm currently using:

## First Key Sort Order Not Working Properly In Pivot Table

Jul 23, 2012

I have entered a custom sort order under 'first key sort order,' but the field is not sorting according to the list.

I'm sure I entered the list correctly, because I actually entered it a long time ago, and it was working for a while. However, today the underlying data was temporarily erased, and the pivot table, when refreshed, basically went blank. I restored the data and refreshed the table, but this field is back to sorting in the wrong order. Refreshing the pivot table and re-choosing the appropriate sort options do not work.

## Excel 2010 :: Dynamic Range Not Working Properly

Jan 8, 2013

Had been using this formula for almost 3 years, recently the formula didn't work properly as the range goes down halfway only instead of to the last data in the column. I'm using Excel 2010 now.

=Sheet1!\$A\$2:INDEX(Sheet1!\$A:\$A,COUNTA(Sheet1!\$A:\$A))

## Formula Is Not Showing Properly Date

Jan 9, 2007

I'm trying to have a fixed date entered into column B when data is entered into column D. Here's the formula in column B:

=IF(D3="", IF(B3=";", FixedDate(),B3))

When I enter data into cell D, I get the following result in B:

0-Jan-00

Taking this a step further, even if I do a "control + ;" I still get a value of
0-Jan-00 in the cell but the formula bar shows me "=1/9/2007'. ??

I've gone through all of the options but cannot fix this error. I have two spreadsheets using this formula. The first one worked fine last year but now I have this error in it. I also started to create a new sheet and still have the same error.

## Formula: Ranking The Data

Sep 30, 2008

Which formula do you recommend I can use to rank the below fields in yellow. I need to find the following:

1 - Which sales advisor (their name) has got the highest MPPI conversion and place it in cell K32.

2 - Which sales advisor (their name) has got the highest HC conversion and place it in cell K34.

3 - Which sales advisor (their name) has got the highest Highest Apps conversion and place it in cell K36.

## Ranking Scores Formula

Jan 21, 2009

I have a table of data where i want to rank scores. I know the general formula for this would be =RANK(B2,\$B\$2:\$B\$7) as an example however the range of data is not next to each other and I have tried this formula =RANK(B2,B2,B4,B6) but this comes up with an error.

## Moving Ranking Formula

Dec 9, 2008

I am wanting to rank mulitple groups of data and as i do this daily and the size of the groups are constantly changing there is a lot of manual moving cell sizes around to get what i need. i am hopeing there is a simpler way...

An example is say a horse race
info i have

race tab score
2 1 10
2 2 6
2 3 8
2 4 12
2 5 9

3 1 7
3 2 12
3 3 8
3 4 15

i have been using =rank(\$C2,\$C\$2:\$C6) so i am trying to rank the scores...... ETC and i know this locks sells but if i take dollar signs away the next row doesnt rank A3 from A2:A6 and i also want to be able to drag down so the formula will then do race 3 etc....

is there a way i can do a lookup + rank so my formula ranks all numbers relating to race 2 then goes on to rank numbers relating to race 3 ?

I will also have to add the track name i guess as each individual track has race 1, 2, 3 etc

## Formula: Automatically Ranking

May 9, 2007

Would someone be so kind as to look at the attcahed sheet. There are boxes with data entered. Depending on the achievement the 3 parties are automatically ranked 1,2 or 3 as you can see.

All except for cells j23:j25, although I've used exactly the same formula as the other boxes, the ranking doesn't seem to work for some reason I cannoot fathom.

I know there is an issue with merging, but all the others work and are merged (to get them to work I created the formula before merging).

## Ranking :: What Formula Would Be Used To Rank Scores

Participant 1 14

## Ranking Without Zero And Ranking On Multiple Factors?

Aug 12, 2014

I am facing some problem with ranking formulae. Attached is a file illustrating them.

Problem 1: Ranking without zero I have a set of data for products. They have a number next to it. Some of the products have a ZERO value next to them. I want to rank the data in an ascending order while ignoring the products with ZERO value next to them.

Problem 2: Ranking on multiple factors I have a set of data for 50 products. There are 5 factors based on which I want to pick the best and the worst. Each factor has a value which can be a negative number, zero or positive number.

This is what I am doing presently: Ranking the products on each factor in a separate column. Points are assigned based on the ranking, i.e. if the ranking of "product A" on Factor 1 is 32, then it gets 32 points It is assumed that equal importance [weight] is given to each factor, thus average points is calculated based on ranking of each product on each factor. Average points are again ranked in descending order The top & bottom 10 are picked from this ranking.

Number of products and number of factors can be different for each analysis. Presently I am giving equal importance to the rankings for each of the factors, what if I have to give varied importance [weight] to the factors.

## Amend Ranking Formula For Sports Results

Oct 15, 2009

I am attempting to upgrade a scoring system in excel 2003 which I use to rank wins in a sports results grid and i have to amend a formula based on a new version. The current formula in the attached part-completed worksheet Draw9 of 1 to 9, which I wish to amend, is in cells AM42:53 one of which is:

=IF(AL44="","",RANK(AL44,AL44:AL53)&CHOOSE(AND(RANK(AL44,AL44:AL53)<>{11,12,13})*MIN(4,MOD(RANK(AL44 ,AL44:AL53),10))+1,"th","st","nd","rd","th"))

I have now added an extra column of data in cell AN44:53 under “LSD” and I would like to use this to improve the accuracy of the original ranking. In other words I wish to Rank teams using the “Wins” in column AL42:53 plus the “LSD” data in columns AN44:53 and this will ensure that where teams are tied on the same number of wins then the numbers in the “LSD” column will enable a clear ranking i.e. say 3 teams on 3 wins ranked 6th = will now be ranked 6th,7th & 8th.

## Ranking Error :: Formula To Rank Employees

Feb 12, 2009

I had tried ranking formula to rank employees on some cirteria it was working, but if there is any tie between two employees then the next rank is not displaying for example in Ach Rank : rank 5 is missing because there is tie is between two employees is rank 4. Request your suggestion and help on this for overcoming the issue.

Formula used for ranking : =IF(B2>=75%,RANK(B2,\$B\$2:\$B\$41,1)-COUNTIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$41,"
