# Ranking With Tie Breaker

## I'm tring to solve an issue with ranking with a tie breaker. I don't know how to explain it without sounding confusing so I'm attaching a sample, but basicly I want to be able to rank people with certain points and a set tie breaker value.

Ranking Based On Criteria With A Tie Breaker
I've got 3 columns of info.. Name, Org, #Sales, \$\$..

I need to rank the list by:

Org, \$\$, #of Sales (as the tie breaker)

So, I need it to look for a specific Org Dept in Column B, rank the Dollar Amounts in column C, and if there are any ties, go to #Sales in column D and use the biggest number there to break the tie.

I've found 2 formulas..

This one was awesome for looking for the specifc Org Dept and only ranking those numbers that matched the designated Org Dept. (but this can't break any ties)..

IF(ISERROR(MATCH(\$O3,LARGE(IF(\$P\$3:\$P\$53=R\$2,\$O\$3:\$O\$53),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&COUNTIF(\$P\$3:\$P\$53,R\$2)))),0)),"",MATCH(\$O3,LARGE(IF(\$P\$3:\$P\$53=R\$2,\$O\$3:\$O\$53),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&COUNTIF(\$P\$3:\$P\$53,R\$2)))),0))

Then there's this one that broke ties, but can't recognize a specific Org Dept that I need..

=RANK(\$O3,\$O\$3:\$O\$53)+SUMPRODUCT((\$O\$3:\$O\$53=\$O3)*(\$F\$3:\$F\$53>\$F3))

Sentence Breaker
I have a word document with sentences which has to be broken down with length of 65 characters (words should not be broken). This has to be stored in consecutive cells.

Example

sample text input

This is a sample sentence format from a document which has to be broken down with length of 65. This is created by 'VENOM' on 22-09-2009 for sampling it into a excel sheet named as 'The sample.xls'.

Output

This is a sample sentence format from a document which has to be
broken down with length of 65. This is created by 'VENOM' on
22-09-2009 for sampling it into a excel sheet named as
'The sample.xls'.

REQ:
1. words should not break
2. words with special characters should not break(like.. 22-09-2009)
3. words in quotes has to come in full (like.. 'The sample.xls'.)

Breaking A Tie
I have scores for golf teams that I have ranked. When there is a tie, I wish to break that tie based on another number.

For example, 2 teams tie for 1st place with a score of 312 from 4 golfers. I wish to rank those scores based on a 5th player score and determine the winner to be ranked 1st and the next 2nd without disrupting the ranking order of the other teams.

Scoring To Break Tie (i.e. Golf)
I couldn't find a solution to where I'm at now, but Derks formula...
= SUMIF(\$J\$5:\$J\$44,J5,\$K\$5:\$K\$44)/COUNTIF(\$J\$5:\$J\$44,J5)

from...
excel formula

...Almost gets what I need, but my data will not always be in a high/low descending order. I'm braindead; I can't think of how to make this formula work.

Rank W/ Multiple Tie Breakers
I saw similar threads relating to Ranking w/ a single tie-breaker, but I'm getting tripped up on a formula that requires multiple tie-breakers...

Split Point Value In The Event Of A Tie
I am trying to split the points given to our anglers. here is my formula for assigning the points (column I) based on the place (columnH):
=VLOOKUP(H5,'Supporting columns'!A2:B33,2,FALSE). I tried adding +IF(H5=H5:H33,-1) but this affected all other rankings. if 2 anglers tie for a place, the points for that place are awarded -1.

Tie Custom Toolbar To Workbook
I have created a macro and would like to use it in other workbooks. Can this be saved to the tool bar for this purpose?

Scoring System. Different Points For Win, Lose Or Tie
Have used excel for a while but never the need to go past SUM or AVG, etc.

Im trying to set up a point scoring sytem for 3 teams in various events. the highest scoring team would get 2 points, 2nd place 1, 3rd place 0. If 2 teams tied for first they both get 2. If they tie for second they both get 1. I spent 30 minutes before I came up with

=IF(AND(B3>B4, B3>B5),2,0)
and
=IF(OR(B3=B4, B3=B5),1)

Spent another 15 trying to figure out how to put the 2 together. Finally realized a)Im missing a whole bunch of formula, b)There is a lot more to excel than I thought I knew.

B3,B4,B5 are the teams scores. Looking for any help at this point. Even a push in the right direction.

Counting Letters & Returning Greatest Won't Work When There Is A Tie
I have managed to get a nice array formula to look up count all the Rs As & Gs in some cells and return whichever there are most of (the cells are linked to/fed from another workbook with cells that have either an R, A or G in - nothing else)

And mainly this is working but on one set of cells it returns nothing as there are 2 As and 2 Gs - what is really annoying is that on a set of cells on a another section of the tab there are 5 A's and 5 G's and that returns an A.

Ranking - Ties
I've a problem with scoring using the rank formula.

Example: four players score, 28,17,39,6. The 39 score wins, gets 4 points, 28 = 3points, 17 = 2 points, 6 = 1 point.

The rank formula will work this out fine.

However if you get two scores tied, for example 28, 28, 39, 6, using rank the points score for each 28 returns 2 when I actually need it to be 2.5
(Thats 3points +2points / 2).

Non Numerical Ranking
Is there an equivalent of =rank for non-numerical data? If not, is it possible to sort data (into another column if necessary) alphabetically without resorting to a macro?

Ranking Query
I have a spreadsheet which we use to rank scores for our golf society.

At the start of our season it was decided that if anyone of the top 3 scores were tied we would separate them using a second criteria(back nine score). Any scores from position 4 down would still be tied.

From searching this forum i have managed to separate ties using the 'back nine' second criteria(using a hidden helper column) but only for all the ranking positions not just the top 3.

I have attached the file.

RANKing Words?
The Excel function RANK allows one to automatically rank a number within a given range of numbers. Can anyone think of a way to do the same thing with words?

For example, imagine a list of 20 words in a column, with space to add ten more words (complete range B2 to B31, which include the last ten blank cells). If these were numbers, then in the previous column one could simply put in the RANK formula covering the full range, which would then auto update as you added more numbers to the spare ten cells of the range. Assuming that all the values being ranked are unique, and you would therefore get a unique rank number, to order them in rank order, one would simply have the list of possible rank values a column or two removed and VLOOKUP the ranks and their appropriate values.

But what if these numbers were WORDS? The first 20 words are FIXED and will not change, the next ten cells of the range could have any other words typed into them. There is no RANK function for words so how would you suggest that ranking by words is achieved, that does not require any intervention, and as new words were added to the spare ten cells in the range, then the rank would automatically update? This list of ranked words would then be VLOOKUP’d in the same fashion as above with the final list being used to fuel a drop down box, so the user would have an alphabetical listing of all the potential words in the range.

Ranking, Ordering
A number of columns (B to U) contain names, details and scores of players. The A column contains the ranking, e.g. 1 to 100.

If a player (row) is deleted, that ranking number is also gone. Is there a way to make the A column always maintain the integrity and completeness of the numbering, e.g. if rank (row) 16 is deleted, the range of B17:U100 moves one row up and the former 17 is now 16? And if a new row is inserted, the ranking numbers after the insertion move up one row and a new number is added at the end?

2. There are 6 columns of scores, P to U. But out of these 6 scores, only the best 4 count for the ranking. The two worst (highest) scores are dropped. Is there a way to automate the process by selecting only the 4 best (lowest) numbers to be summed into the Total column (C), which in turn determines the rankings in the A column?*

And then can the whole range B2:U100 automatically be sorted according to the ranking in column (A)?

*It is possible that there are 3 or 4 bad scores, all with the same value. In that case only 2 could be discarded, and 1 or 2 would be summed into the ranking cell.

VBA Ranking
I have a sheet name "GP", and the range "A1:A5".

I need your kind help with a code that if the cells in the range become 10, then the cell across in column B will rank the order of the cell that scored 10.

ie: if A2=10 then B2=1st, A4=10 then B4 = 2nd, A5=10 then B5=3rd, A1=10 then B1=4th, A3=10 then B3=5th.

The ranking is placed according to the which cell results to 10 first.

Ranking A List
I have a list of values that I need to rank in descending order. Usually
the RANK function is OK, but here is my problem. I need the list to use
'generous' rules. If there is a tie for 2nd, lets say, then I need the next
place to be 3rd, NOT 4th as the RANK function does.

eg
Scores Rank(correct) Rank(wrong)
14.04 1 1
12.665 2 2
12.665 2 2
11.725 3 4
0.000 4 5

Reverse Ranking
I have a column of events,there are 7000 in my sheet.The scores for each contestant in the event are in col.2. In col 4 I have the rank printed for each contestant in each event in ascending order.I want to know how to print them in opposite order i.e highest in each event is ranked 1 etc into column 5.

Conditional Ranking From B6:J6
[data] ...

I need to be able to rank the numbers in the bottom row above based on the criteria in the yellow above. e.g.

Amoung all m's Phil = _____
Amoung all m's red's Phil = _____
Amoung all m's washer's Phil = _____
Amoung all m's washer's Team1 Phil = _____ etc etc

I began using a series on concatenations and found a nice sumproduct formula that worked well going up and down the column, but how can i do the same going across the columns.

Ranking And Points Behind
im doing a excell sheet for a fantasy league that i ahve created. I have a "total" cell to combine the total points for each player. I then used the "rank" formula to rank the highest points to that player. My question is...can i show like how many points behind everyone else is from who ever the "rank 1" is in?

Not sure if you can do 2 formuals in same cell or not. maybe i could have rank and how many points are behind in same cell

Example. lets say
Player points rank
Tim 5000 1
Jimmy 4000 2 -1000
Sara 3500 3 -1500

Ranking To Ignore 0
I need the folwing formula to ignore any 0 in column Q, and rank only values of 1 or greater.

=RANK(Q6,\$Q\$6:\$Q\$20,1)

Final Ranking
I need to do a final ranking for the employees those who have been already ranked on three different segments. And there will be also employees who are not qualified for the ranking in any one of the three different segments. So in the final ranking need to find the final qualified employees who are ranked in all the segments and we need to rank them, and the employees who are not qualified also has to be mentioned.

Ranking The Employee
i have two col A and B

In col A name of the employee
In col B there production for the Month

I need in c col to rank them that according to there production for the month like 1,2,3, etc.

Ranking Assistance
i was looking for some assistance in regards to a formula i have used for ranking. i have attached a sample spreadsheet of what i have done so far but struggling to work something so thot id try here.

(Sample WB) Currently i have managed to rank in accordance to column E but as i have alot of 0% i would like to be able to rank the 0% in accordance to the number of work done (column C).

For example i have 62 0% answers and Username Q has actioned 316 jobs with 0 Failures so should be ranked 1st as he has the highest number of jobs.

Blanking Ranking
I have a sheet where each month, dependent on results I rank the players, 1,2,3. For months not yet reached I want the cell to be blank, until the data is input, and then rank. I thought the following formula would work but the cells are showing all the players with a ranking of 1 until I input data.

=IF(ISNA(RANK(L23,\$L\$23:\$L\$25)),"",RANK(L23,\$L\$23:\$L\$25))

What am I doing wrong.

I don't want the players to show a ranking of 1, I want them cell to be blank until I input data to the other cells.

Ranking Without Gap
i need to rank database and get an output of 1, 2, 3, 4, and ect. even if the first 2 had a tie of 1; 1;. So if i have 500 records and the first 3 are tie at 1st place than the next rank should NOT be 4 but instead should be 2 and so on. Is it possible?

# Rank

58 - 3
58 - 3
50 - 4

Creating Ranking System
I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will automatically create a ranking system after data is input manually.

If you look in the example, you'll see roughly 30 people will be ranked on various metrics, and on another sheet, I would like 1-30 to be displayed in each of the different metrics, thus creating a ranking.

I'm not sure how to go about doing this, and any help would be greatful. I've tried different excel tutorials and searched and searced the help features, but couldn't exactly find what i was looking for.

I'm a Navy instructor with a monster of a workbook. Im doing fairly well considering my lack of Excel knowledge but can seem to figure this out. The following is straight out of my workbook and represents 1 out of a possible 30 students. Sometimes I get 15 and sometimes 30.

I have 8 tests with 2 different weightings (7.5 and 17.5). Ive figured out how to calculate everything but a way to rank each student by grade percentage. Is there a way to calculate the class standing out of all the students with green color for top top 10%?

Formula: Automatically Ranking
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).

Apply Ranking By Date
I need to add a field to a data set that ranks groups of data based on a date field. Items with the same "Type" & "Vintage" need to be assigned a number based on the date field starting with 1 for newest to x for oldest. I'm looking for a macro or formula that I can use to automatically assign these values. I attached an example. The highlighted green section was completed manually for reference. The real data set is thousands of lines.

Ranking Racing Sheet
First off, can someone guide me to a better formula to E2:E14 or E21 if used later without the array? Other folks will use this workbook. Next, is there a way to do that without using columns F2 or G2. There are numbers below 0 to take into account that need ranked. The whole idea is to rank them as to whatever #'s are closest to 4.7000. I eventually want it to match the name in column- A2 to the appropriate ranking. 0.0000 is #1 and the highest abs would be #13-(1.0098) in the sheet. If anything in A2:A21 is added or removed I'd like the entire row to remain "blank".

Points Ranking Formulas
I have a spread sheet in which I enter players names and the place they
finished for a certain event. I would like the sheet to calculate their
points according to where they finish and assign it to them along with a
formula that calculates a bonus point value according to the number of
players in a certain event.

1st place-450 pts + 30% bonus
2nd place-300 pts + 20% bonus
3rd place-180 pts + 12% bonus
4th place-120pts + 8% bonus
5th place-105 pts + 7% bonus
6th place 90 pts + 6% bonus
7th place 75 pts + 5% bonus
8th place 60pts + 4% bonus
9th-16th place 15 pts + 1% bonus

16th place 15 points

Bonus point formula is (# players X 5)x %

Subtotaling And Ranking Items
Looking for a way to generate the 'Top X' table listed below using formulas (not autofilters) to filter through and subtotal/rank the data. As you can see, the user will select the region, quarter, and year, and the result should be a ranking of Top X Branches for the specified time period....

Moving Ranking Formula
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

Ranking Second Number Between Two Words
i have a column of numbers. every so often in the column, there is the word 'start'. the amount of numbers between each 'start' varies, but i would like to put a 1 or a 0 in the column next to each number. i would like the second highest ranking number to get a 1 and all the others to get a 0.

if the first and second numbers between two starts are equal, then i would like all numbers between the 'start' to get a 0.

for example:

start
12 0
23 0
45 0
34 1
start
23 0
34 0
45 0
56 1
68 0
45 0
34 0
45 0
start
23 0
23 0
start

I posted on here months ago and someone very kindly did an array formula for me, trouble is some of the sheets are so long now that the array takes a few minutes to work it out and load up

Ranking Teams Scores
The team score is made of of 3 scores, the best from each age group. So the issue is to find the best (=lowest) for each club and for each age group. Add them & rank. Sometimes there may not be 3 scores to add up ( if they didn't have a team member in all three age groups or if their rider was eliminated. I'm easy about how to show who the team members are, could be as I've shown with the rider numbers in a cell or could be by "bolding" the score or anything else thats easy....

Ranking Range Of Cell With Value Only
I am ranking set of numbers (# of days worked) in a 10 cell column but the numbers of persons I rank differs from day to day.

If I enter "0"(zero) on one of the cell, it ranks the whole ten cells. I have to enter Zero because that is the number of days worked.

How can I enter the value of zero that does not activate the other blank cells?

Here is my formula: =IF(ISNA(RANK(B5,\$B\$5:\$B\$14,1)),"",RANK(B5,\$B\$5:\$B\$14,1))

Update Based On Ranking
I have a customer spread sheet that uses a “Ranking” to establish the next “Contact Date” based on the “Ranking” and the “Last Contact Date”.

An example is – a “Customer” with an A “Ranking” would be contacted 21 days after the “Last Contact Date”, with a B “Ranking”, 28 days after the “Last Contact Date” etc.

Is there any way that the “Next Contact Date” can be automatically up dated when the “Ranking” is changed and there are multiple rankings (A, B,C, D etc)

Ranking Horse Sale
I'm making a spreadsheet to record the results of a horse sale, and I'm trying to make a summary sheet to list various statistics such as the 10 top sellers, 10 worst sellers, etc.

Now, I know I can get the 10 top prices easily by using Large(<Range>, 1...10) in my cells but I can't figure out a way to properly determine the hip # and name. Everything works fine when there's only 1 entry at price n, but when there are multiple I run into problems.

EX:

Horse 1 sold for \$5500
Horse 2 sold for \$8500
Horse 3 sold for \$5500
Horse 4 sold for \$6000

So, my summary should show
Horse 2 \$8500
Horse 4 \$6000
Horse 1 \$5500
Horse 3 \$5500

Ranking With Blank Cells
In column d there are random numbers with some blank cells. In column e is the ranking column d from 1 upwards, see formula.

=RANK(D28,D\$8:D\$30,1)

What changes are required to have a result of a blank cell or zero for the corresponding blank cells in column d?

Ranking Scores Formula
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.

Sorting And Ranking Events
I have a worksheet that I use on a track and field day to enter times and distances and then can allot points based on performance. That is not the problem.

My question is: Is there a function or formula to then sort through the data and rank the participants in order of their finish in a different worksheet? I imagine I would somehow need to link the data to each name. I have attached a copy of the actual worksheet.

Ranking By Multiple Criteria
I have attached an example worksheet of something that I am working on. My references refer to this sheet.

Column Descriptions:
B = agents.
C = the agent's supervisor.
D = the agent's score.
E = the agent's overall rank in comparison to all other agents.
*F = the agent's rank in comparison to the other agents on the supervisor's team.

I need a formula (non-VBA) that will fill column F. That is, a formula that will compare agents on a specific team, based on their QA scores. Though the example data range is small, this will be applied to roughly 600 agents, split up among roughly 40 supervisors. I am currently using Excel 2007.

If anybody has any ideas, suggestions, or solutions, I would greatly appreciate the help, as I have been beating my head against the desk in my attempt to figure this out.

Modify Ranking Code
Is it possible to modify this code so that it will give the lowest values the opposite ranking from which it is now. (Please take a look at the example sheet)....

Formula: Ranking The Data
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 - Highest To Lowest
I am trying to do is rank the value in column G from the highest positive value to the lowest and then the highest or largest negative to the lowest or smallest negative in that order. The way it is arranged/sorted in the attachment is exactly how it should be for this example. However, the ranking formula does not work? What it needs to do is show the value in cell H13 as the 6th ranking and not the 13th?

Score Ranking Table Sorting
So, I have a table of scores from players for a category I have. It looks like this:

Place-------------Name-------------Country-------------Score
1st---------------Jim----------------USA--------------------376
2nd--------------Michael-----------Germany-------------364
2nd--------------Tim---------------USA-----------------364
4th---------------John--------------Norway-------------355

if one of the guys, for example, John were to improve his score to a 369, I'd change the score in Excel, then use the sort feature to put him above Michael and Tim. Only problem is, it would say his place is still 4th place, and it doesn't change to 2nd place.

I want it so the "Place" column automatically changes to the correct rank based on the score the person has. So if I changed John's 355 score to 369 and hit sort by A-Z, Excel would automatically change the "Place" he's in appropriately so it would look like this:

Place-------------Name-------------Country-------------Score
1st---------------Jim----------------USA--------------------376
2nd--------------John--------------Norway--------------369
3rd---------------Michael-----------Germany-------------364
3rd--------------Tim----------------USA-----------------364

Selection And Ranking 10 Highest Values
I'm trying to let the code described down below to select 10 of the highest values and give them a ranking in the next column using the letters A to J.

My query;

The code gives all 10 of the highest values the ranking letter J instead of A to J, so what's going wrong?

Also, is there a way to simplify this code so it will be easier to maintain and run quicker?

This is my general template. I get prices from BOA, LEH AND BEAR on the four companies listed. Then I use the Min function to tell me the best price (I'm buying). Then I use some IF statements to tell me who's the "Lowest Name" (lowest price):

=IF(\$G2=\$C2,"/"&\$G\$1,"")&IF(\$H2=\$C2,"/"&\$H\$1,"")&IF(\$I2=\$C2,"/"&\$I\$1,"")&IF(\$J2=\$C2,"/"&\$J\$1,"")&IF(\$K2=\$C2,"/"&\$K\$1,"")&IF(\$L2=C2,"/"&L\$1,"")&IF(\$M2=\$C2,"/"&\$M\$1,"")

It checks if a cell is = the lowest cell value, then returns the header. This formula refers to different columns than my displayed sheet because Im hiding so cells and I just copied this to another section of my sheet. There's probably a better way to do this but this is what I have do far. I use this for 50 company names and 5 or six dealer banks (BOA, LEH, etc)

I'd like column that gives me the Second Place price and one that gives me the associated dealer (BOA, LEH).

Ranking Values Until Change In Another Cell
I have 2 lists.

I want to rank scores/ratings in list 2 and rank against all those cells that have the same value.

In the example you will see column A and column B.

I need a Rank for all those cells in B for 17:45, 18:15, 18:45 etc.
