# Unique Ranks Function

May 10, 2007

I have a list of data where some of the cell values are the same. I want to rank them uniquely but when I use the RANK function the cell values that are the same are given the equivalent rank. Is there any way of assigning the equivalent values a sequential ranking that is unique?

So in this example rather than producing the rank as this:

100 1
99 2
98 3
98 3
98 3
97 4
96 5
95 6

It would produce it as this:

100 1
99 2
98 3
98 4
98 5
97 6
96 7
95 8

## Multi Conditional IF Function: Show Where The Tender Ranks Against A Set Of Criteria

Nov 12, 2009

I have a workbook which scores tender's, the calculations behind the front sheet work fine, I would now like to show where the tender ranks against a set of criteria. I have attached a sample and typed into the cell D12 what I am trying to with this list of criteria below starting in cell C15.

## Ranking With VBA - No Gaps Between Ranks

Feb 7, 2014

I have a problem ranking a large dataset(more than 30000 rows, 16 different columns need to be ranked). My problem is that I dont want the ranks to have gaps when there are ties.

See how it should be in table below.

Ext P\$
Rank
Should be
2,128.34
1
1

[Code]...

I do have a working solution with an array formula similar to this, but it slows down my macro (30 minutes instead of 10 seconds) as I need it to calculate 16 times

Code:

=SUM(1/COUNTIF(A\$2:A\$35000;A\$2:A\$35000)*(A\$2:A\$35000>A2))+1

I was thinking of using a for next loop to rank sorted columns but I dont know how to set it up properly.

## VLOOKUP With Military Ranks

Oct 22, 2008

i am using this formula with military ranks as the primary value to look up. i know i am doing it correctly because it works with looking up values in another excel workbook when the rank is CPT, PFC, PV2, SPC, SGT, SSG, etc... but it does not work for any rank that is abbreviated with a number as the first character, such as 1LT, 2LT, or 1SG. instead i get a #N/A, which is false. i have looked all over the internet to include this website but cannot find an answer.

## Complicated Data Lookups / Ranks

May 3, 2013

I am building a dashboard for a project, which is going to be on a separate worksheet for easy printing and providing only needed data from my database. I have attached a small example in the format I will actually be using as I think the formula is going to be specific to my dashboard.

Attached file, you should see a column "Rank" highlighted orange, with certain rows being numbered. My objective is to display certain data from that particular row, and display it (scroll to the right to see the dashboard display layout) on the dashboard. I think my main goal is to have the specified data displayed in ranked order 1-10 from the top down, and I don't know where to start with that....the other possiblity is to just have the specified data display in ascending order of the zip codes as long as something other than <blank> is in the "Rank" field.

## Macro Which Ranks Table Of Data

Oct 7, 2008

I have a large table of data which is currently just in alphebetical order. I also have a blank template of the exact table format on another sheet in the same document.

I am trying to create a macro which will pull everything into the current blank table but ranks each row by the overall score (%).

## Rankif Returning Sequential Ranks

Oct 18, 2011

Here is an example of my data and desired results:

A B C
[Material] [Receipt Date] [Order Received (Desired Results)]
1 8/1/11 1
1 8/1/11 1
1 9/1/11 2
2 8/2/11 1
2 8/5/11 2
2 8/5/11 2
2 9/1/11 3

I would like to identify the order in which each "material" was received but I would like the ranks to be sequential.

I am aware of the:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(\$A\$2:\$A\$8=\$A2),--(E2>E\$2:E\$8))+1
to return the rank but I would like to make them sequential...

One last request... I would LIKE to not use array functions if possible, however I will if I have to..

## Formula - (-) Shows Up And Ranks This As The Number One

Mar 16, 2007

On cell K7, i have this formula:

=IF(ISERROR(I7-J7),"",I7-J7)

On cell L7 i have this formula:

=IF(ISERROR(RANK(K7,\$K\$7:\$K\$29,0)),"",(RANK(K7,\$K\$7:\$K\$29,0)))

The issue is that in cell K7 a dash (-) shows up and ranks this as the number one, even when i have no data in I7 and J7.

## Formula That Ranks Dynamic Unsorted Data

Aug 18, 2014

The situation requires some context. I have a spreadsheet that is pulling data in from another location. It is simply a 'Location!A1' link - the source data updates daily as it is a Business Objects report that I dump out and I want to then bring that info into another spreadsheet.

My challenge is attempting to order the data as it comes in without having to manually sort the Business Objects report everyday. Because the link to the BO report is simply a cell look up, I have to take the data as it comes.

I've tried the rank formula according to a price (as this is what it needs to be ranked by) but because some products are the same price as each other, it simply doubles up (so if there's two products at \$10, it ranks them both the same e.g. 4). Once I get the right rank, I can then vlookup the right order in a way I can then reference properly. EXAMPLE 180814.xlsx

## Ranks Columns Of Figures In Decending Order

I have a sheet diplaying 5 columns of percentages which I need to rank in descending order, i.e. assign rank 1 to the largest percentage and 5 to the lowest. See the attached sheet.

## Formula That Reads Grade And Then Ranks These By 1st-5th Place According To Score

Feb 10, 2014

I'm creating a Speech and Debate calculater that presents winners names by place according to their score. If you look at Tab HSSE Results it will read the inputed information from HS Speech English. I want the names of the students to appear in the correct ranking order in the respected grade rankings chart. I currently have a countif formula which reads the grade, but I think I need to link that with an index formula which I'm having problems with.

## IF Function For Last Occurring Unique Cases?

Mar 26, 2014

I have an excel file that lists individuals who came into the clinic on a given day. I am interested in figuring out the amount of unique individuals in a given month/overall. As this is a working datasheet, I would like a formula that would automatically update this information for me. Here is an example of the file that I am working with: unique case example.xlsx

Specifically, I want an IF function that could place an 'x' in column E depending on if the name in column C is a unique instance. But if the name appears several times in the list, I would also like this function to place an 'x' in column E next to the last occurring unique instance. For example, the name 'Hanna D' occurs 3 times in the spreadsheet I have attached, but I want the 'x' to be next to the most recent incident, when she was screened, as opposed to when she was not contacted (missed/doc forgot).

I am not sure if you can even define a unique case in the IF function, let alone the last occurring unique case.

I am not interested in conditional formatting (highlighting duplicate cases and then placing an 'x' next to the most recent highlighted case) because my spreadsheet has 300+ individuals and it is very time consuming to manually move the 'x' when the same individual appears at a later time.

## Creating Unique ID Using Concatenate Function

Mar 26, 2014

I need to create unique IDs for all of my stock. I would like to use the concatenate function so that the first letter of each products type is taken and then joined onto a unique number. Im not sure how I will do this I was thinking that the formula looks at the largest value and adds 1 so that there are no duplicate numbers added to the first letter of the product type. E.g. the first mother board added will be "M1" the next will be "M2" as the formula has found that M1 exists and has added 1.

## Counting Unique Values With A Function

Feb 16, 2006

I have a column of data with 1000 rows. In this column there are duplicated values. I would like to be able to use a function count how many unique values are in the column. Let's say there were 4 duplicates of 250 values in the column. I would like to be able to write a function to calculate the 250. I am very familiar with Excel and am able to acheive the number through subtotals and/or pivot tables. I know I can find how many instances one specific value appears in the column through sumproduct and/or countif statements,

## Function For Unique Values In Array?

## Function For Counting Unique Values?

Jan 31, 2013

what function can I use to count the number of unique values in a range of cells?

## Count Unique Results: Function &lt;&gt; Filter

Dec 27, 2007

Data: four variables A,B,C and D from A2:D6000

I want a count of unique D values
when A=xxx
and B=yyy
and C=zzz

I have named the A,B,C,D ranges as RangeA, RangeB, RangeC, RangeD

I have used the function

=SUM((RangeA="xxx")*
(RangeB="yyy")*
(RangeC="zzz")*

But what do I use to count-unique values of variable D ?

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(RangeD,RangeD)>0,1)) doesn't work.
=SUM(1/COUNTIF(RangeD,RangeD&"")) doesn't work either

They don't work because D can occur during different combinations of A,B and C. In other words, the D value of 'Smith' can, and does, occur when A is 1,2 or 3 and additionally when B is Pass, Fail, Withdrawn.

They "don't work" because I can use filters on A, B, C and D to see what the correct answer should be .. and the function doesn't return the correct answer.

I hope I've explained this ok - I've been searching on several excel-help websites for 2 days now and one of the days my client is going to want some results.

## Count Unique Text Cells Ending In X - Function Only

Nov 15, 2013

I have some data in a column, starting at row 6 that I'd like to find the number of unique text values for. For this I have been using this formula

Code:
{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN(A6:A10000)>0,MATCH(A6:A10000,A6:A10000,0),""), IF(LEN(A6:A10000)>0,MATCH(A6:A10000,A6:A10000,0),""))>0,1))}

The data is dynamic so I picked an arbitrarily large number (10000) and the above formula successfully ignores blank fields.

However, I'd like to now find the count of unique text values that end in X. For example, let's say the data are as follows

Dog_Cat
Mouse_Dog
Mouse_Cat
Mouse_Cat
Mouse_Cat
Mouse_Mouse
Elephant_Elephant

How would I go about (in one function) finding the unique values that end in "_Cat", in this case 2 ("Mouse_Cat" and "Dog_Cat")?

## VLookup Function - Copy Values Corresponding To Unique Identifier From One Sheet To Another

Jul 8, 2014

I would like to copy values corresponding to a unique identifier from one sheet to another, using the vlookup function. The problem is that after a certain cell the values are given as N/A even though they are present in the sheet I want to copy them from.

## Function / Formula In Excel To Count Unique Values Matching Criteria

Jun 4, 2013

## Copy And Paste Unique Values From Column And Use Countif Function To Calculate Average

Jan 19, 2013

I'm stuck on the final piece of my macro project. I've attached a workbook with two sheets: sheet 1 is what I currently have, and sheet 2 is what I'd like my report to look like when complete.

On Sheet 1:
- column B is called Supervisor Name
- Columns D-O are months of the year, with either a Yes or No in each cell.

I'd like to write a macro that will:
- Take all unique values in Supervisor Name column, and paste these Above the current table.
- For each Supervisor, and each month, I'd like it to calculate, as a %, the number of Yes mentions in each month divided by the total cells (Yes/(Yes+No)).

Sheet 2 contains the output, in the format I'd like to see it.

Sheet 2:
Supervisor Name
October
November
December

Supervisor 1
8.3%

## Count All Unique Values (text) + Definition Of UNIQUE :D

Aug 24, 2009

If I have multiple entries with different but repeatable text values in one column - how do I count all unique ones ? Is there a function or does it have to be a pivot table of sth ?

## Assign Unique ID IF Adjacent Cell Has Unique Value?

Jun 5, 2014

I'm trying to think of a way to do this. I need a unique ID number per company, so I would want it to look something like this:

0001: Apple
0001: Apple
0003: Sony
0003: Sony
0003: Sony
0003: Sony
0004: Ford
0004: Ford
0004: Ford

.....and on and on for about 400+ rows. I think I know how to state the condition. IF B15 =/= B14 then....assign unique ID, else A15 = A14....or something to that effect.

## # Of Unique Dates Per Unique List Entry

Oct 22, 2009

Each product is represented by a serial number (column A).
The can be sorted on column A from smallest to largest prior to calculating results if that helps.

The repair list contains 1 entry per spare part used, so the same serial number may occur several times.

Furthermore, a product may have been repaired on several instances - so the serial numbers can span several dates (column B).

The solution i am looking for should return the number of unique repair dates per serial number. That way i can see, how many times each product has been repaired. Results can be displayed in an individual column.

Sample list:
Serial........Repair date
207742052008-09-04
207755082008-12-17
207755212008-12-31

## Remove All But One Non-unique Line Of Data, While Leaving Unique Data Alone

Jun 10, 2007

I am "designing" a time- tracking database. The way it works is that each user (there are multiple users) creates a new day, which is mirrored in the sheet name (i.e. if today is 06/09/07 and my name is Newuser, the sheet name is "NewusER 060907"). Each sheet is filled in, calculated based on in-sheet formulas, etc. At the end of said day, the user can " upload" the daily data from multiple days worth of data into another sheet, that the graphing macro draws from.

The one serious problem I'm having is that users can upload the daily time data for the same day multiple times, to no end. I would like to do one of two things. Either:

a. make it such that once data is uploaded it cannot be uploaded again (probably more difficult), or
b. write a loop to pull out the highest data point up the sheet and delete all other rows for that one specific day's . (probably easier)

example:

Data loaded into the sheet before the macro runs:

Row: Date:
1 06/09/07 *
2 06/10/07 *
3 06/11/07 *
4 06/09/07
5 06/10/07
6 06/12/07 *
7 06/13/07 *
8 06/09/07
9 06/11/07
10 06/14/07 *

* The rows with asterisks are the ones that I would like to have pulled to the second set of data (below)

Data in the sheet after the macro runs:

Row: Date:
1 06/09/07
2 06/10/07
3 06/11/07
4 06/12/07
5 06/13/07
6 06/14/07

Because of the constant changing nature of the information within, I would like to to make this dynamic range selection, I would prefer to avoid using Advanced Filters, if possible.

## Rank & Sort Table: Unique Numbers Sort Ascending, But The Non-unique Numbers Sort Descending

Oct 5, 2007

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

ex) 1.751
2.52
3.753

## Excel 2010 :: VBA Sheets Copy Function Works But Then Jumps To Beginning Of Function

Apr 8, 2014

I'm having trouble using the worksheet copy command in a VBA subroutine. I have the following line in my code:

[Code] ........

When I step through my code and execute this line, the sheet is copied as expected and put in the correct place, but then instead of the next line of code being highlighted, the pointer jumps to the first line of a function (in a different module) in my code.
