#### Ranking - Not Sorting Properly.

```I previously revived a formula (Thanks Max) to Sort and Rank my Stores by the
Strongest Store to the Lowest Store. It did exactly what it was supposed to
do with my sample layout I made with just Four stores and scores. But when I
added all 14 stores to the list (each store as a rank like 2.45 or 3.56 or
11.75) it will not sort them properly.

I am using

=IF(ISNA(RANK(Q7,Q7:Q20,1)),"",INDEX(O7:O20,RANK(Q7,Q7:Q20,1)))

for the ranking system. It works when the stores Ranks are SINGLE digit
numbers, but when they go into the tenths or hundredths the formula can't
sort the Stores in the correct order.

Example (This is all on the same sheet)

___This is what we will see when we print the sheet out.___
___The RANK formula is inside the cells with the stores names___
___It is not ranking them properly___

B--------C--
RANK___FOOD COST

1_______Hwy 105
2_______Lumberton 96
3_______Palestine
4_______Lumberton 69
5_______Mauriceville
6_______Baytown
7_______M L K
8_______Walden
9_______Kountze
10______Hugo
11______M L K
12______Loop 256
13______Athens
14______Silsbee

-------------------------------------------

__The stores are permanent and are sorted alphabetically__
__The Total is added together from 12 other sheets representing JAN-DEC - I
am using =SUMIF(JAN!D7:D20,O7,JAN!B7:B20) to grab each section of code__
__The Rank is divided by whatever Month we have currently finished. At the
moment I have a cell off to the side that I will put 4 in to represent April
and the Rank will divide the Total by 4 to give me an average rank for the
store (=P7/R3)__

O-------------P------R
Food Cost____Total__Rank

Athens_______21___5.25
Baytown______30___7.50
Hugo_________44	___11.00
Hwy 105______25	___6.25
Kountze_______32___8.00
Loop 256______17___4.25
Lumberton 69___39___9.75
Lumberton 96___48___12.00
Mauriceville____23___5.75
M L K__________18___4.50
Mont Belvieu____39___9.75
Palestine	______24___6.00
Silsbee________13___3.25
Walden________47___11.75

-------------------------

What I have written down is exactly what my sheet is showing me. I am
dumbfounded on how to correct the formula to show the stores in the order
they are supposed to be in. It should look like this..

1_______Silsbee
2_______Loop 256
3_______M L K
4_______Athens
5_______Mauriceville
6_______Palestine
7_______Hwy 105
8_______Baytown
9_______Kountze
10______Lumberton 69 * 9.75
11______Mont Belvieu * 9.75
12______Hugo
13______Walden
14______Lumberton 96

Also.... I noticed when two stores have the same Rank.. Like Lumberton 69
and Mont Belvieu with 9.75, it will show only one store in both the 10 and 11
spot. Whichever store is first in the Alphabetic list is the one it puts on
both spots.

Thanks for reading through the mess. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

```I don't understand how that formula was going to work, could you
provide a reference to the other thread?

Attached (to this post at thecodecage.com - there's usually a link
lower down this message) is a workbook as I guess your sheet is set up.
It results in the order you want. It doesn't highlight equal scores.

```The problem you face is because of tied scores. The earlier, simple
expression doesn't handle ties, an event which I had thought/presumed would
not happen with your depiction of sample scores in D2 down.

Here's a simple way to handle it with tiebreakers
You have your scores in D2 down, store names in C2 down
Put in E2: =IF(D2="","",D2+ROW()/10^10)
Copy down to cover the max expected extent of data in col D, say down to
D200. Minimize/hide col E. This is the tiebreaker col.

Then drop this in B2:
=IF(ROWS(\$1:1)>COUNT(E:E),"",INDEX(C:C,MATCH(SMALL(E:E,ROWS(\$1:1)),E:E,0)))
Copy down to B200. Col B will now return the full ascending list of store
names, sorted by the scores in col D. Stores with tied scores, if any, will
appear in the same relative order that they appear within the source data.

```Max,

I'm getting there. Slowly. lol

=IF(Q7="","",Q7+ROW()/10^10)

to the sheet. as well as

=IF(ROWS(\$1:1)>COUNT(E:E),"",INDEX(C:C,MATCH(SMALL(E:E,ROWS(\$1:1)),E:E,0)))

I am not sure if I am inserting the cell codes into the correct spots.

D7:D20 has the cells where I will be inserting the code (=IF(rows....)
O7:O20 Has the actual name of the stores in ABC order.
Q7:Q20 Has the actual ranks after the division.
R7:R20 Has the cells where I will be inserting the code (=IF(Q7="","",....)

Do I need to keep the previous code

=IF(ISNA(RANK(Q7,Q7:Q20,1)),"",INDEX(O7:O20,RANK(Q7,Q7:Q20,1)))

On the new code (=IF(ROWS(\$1:1)>...) I am not sure which cells go where.

Ensure that calc mode is set to auto. ROWS(\$1:1) is just an incrementer

as the mind still is, humble apologies

In R7: =IF(Q7="","",Q7+ROW()/10^10)
R7 is copied down to R20

The above takes the scores in Q7:Q20, which could contain ties, or even
multiple ties, and for any tied scores, it'll create fractionally different
scores to differentiate these.

It does this through the use of this part:  Q7+ROW()/10^10
where the part:  +ROW()/10^10
adds a very small number which will be different small number for each row
as you copy down by virtue of the ROW()

These different scores created in R7:R20 are then used as the base to
extract whatever is required (eg the names in O7:O20) via the
index(colO,match(small(colR,incrementer),colR,0)) expression

and here is my 1st reply to the OP's latest issue (in the other branch):

The problem you face is because of tied scores. The earlier, simple
expression doesn't handle ties, an event which I had thought/presumed would
not happen with your depiction of sample scores in D2 down.

Here's a simple way to handle it with tiebreakers
You have your scores in D2 down, store names in C2 down
Put in E2: =IF(D2="","",D2+ROW()/10^10)
Copy down to cover the max expected extent of data in col D, say down to
D200. Minimize/hide col E. This is the tiebreaker col.

Then drop this in B2:
=IF(ROWS(\$1:1)>COUNT(E:E),"",INDEX(C:C,MATCH(SMALL(E:E,ROWS(\$1:1)),E:E,0)))
Copy down to B200. Col B will now return the full ascending list of store
names, sorted by the scores in col D. Stores with tied scores, if any, will
appear in the same relative order that they appear within the source data.

I'm afraid that has to be answered by the OP. Don't be discouraged however,
this sort of thing happens all the time in forums. Given the fortune of
receiving a plethora of responses to their queries, some OPs do check-out
each response's value and even reply to each individual responder while
others well, do not practice it to this level of diligence. And some OPs
don't even bother replying at all.

PIvot Table Sorting Differently in Excel 2003 than Earlier Versions
I am wondering if anyone else is having a similar problem or concern and can provide some documentation or insight into this problem. The problem occurs in Excel 2003 as the program seems to act differently under the same conditions than it does in earlier versions of Excel (97, 2000 and 2002). The problem is best illustrated by using two pivot tables, one based on the other, as in my example below. I have a pivot table with three items inserted into the row section of the layout and one item in the data section which is the subtotal of the line item. Let's say the three items are the...

Sorting the register
I have been a Quicken user for about ten years, and have decided to give Money a whirl. One of the Quicken features that I really like the was the ability to sort the register based on that cleared status of any transaction. This view sorted the transactions first by reconciled transactions, followed by cleared transactions, followed by un-cleared transactions. This made it very simple to balance my checkbook to the banks online balance. Is there a way to do this in money 2004? Does anyone out there that has used both Quicken and Money have any comments about one product as it comp...

Clarify Sorting
I've recently begun to Copy and paste-special values among other things numbers (integers); such numbers are best treated as text << so I format as Text afterwards; nonetheless when I sort on the field it isn't clean - frankly, its just not sorting... Are there guaranteed steps to reach the data sort stage "in good shape"? Tks in Advance... Formatting a cell as Text after it contains a numeric entry isn't enough. You could reenter each of them manually (yechhhh!) or you could use a helper column filled with formulas: =a1&"" =text(a1,"000000...

Ranking in Excel
Hi All I need to rank numbers entered in column A in ascending order while recognising ties but not skipping ranking numbers. The numbers can range from 1 to 1,000 but there are only 40 rows of data in column A. Any help would be much appreciated. Kind Regards Celticshadow To do this with worksheet functions, you need to sort your list in your desired (Ascending) order. If your numbers start in A2, then in B2, enter a 1, and in B3, enter the formula =IF(A3=A2,B2,B2+1) and copy down. IF your numbers cannot be sorted, then you would either need another helper column or VBA. -- HTH, ...

Is it possible to sort the names in a distribution list by last name? Thanks, John Pinback John Pinback <pinback1752@yahoo.com> wrote: > Is it possible to sort the names in a distribution list by last name? The DL "Name" field reflects the "Display As" field of the added contacts. If you specify the Display As fields the way you want (i.e., "Last, First"), then the Name field in the DL will be alphabetized by last name. You can resort either ascending or descending by clicking the Name column header. When you are in the process of choosing the...

Inserting cells then ranking
Hi, I am trying to create a ‘to-do job’ spreadsheet that will automatically insert new ‘tasks’ according to their priority. For example, on the sheet I currently have 10 tasks - entered manually. However, the more tasks I have, the longer I spend re-assigning rank order numbers. I would like the sheet to: • insert a new task e.g., Pick up TV. let’s say, into position number 5. This would result in “Sweep Drive” moving down to number 6 and all the other jobs would subsequently be moved down one cell. • Allow me to keep adding jobs if necessary.
