Count top 10 per frequency during the year


New Member

I really have no idea where to start and not even sure if this is available in excel.

I have a count of payments per branch, this is split into months. Now, I want to identify the top 10 branches with the highest count but also with the most frequency. For example, I know that Branches 2, 4, 5 and 9 should not be in the top 10 because the payments are not occurring as often.

Appreciate the input in advance

Here is one approach. Tables structured like yours generally do not lend themselves well to this type of calculation. Rather than inserting branch totals in your data table, I would recommend eliminating those lines and filling in the branch column so that every line in your data table is clear...a branch, date, and count are shown. Then you can use some other other formulas to extract branch totals and to create a sorted list, as shown below. Note that I've changed some branch entries to create some "ties" to confirm that all of them appear in the sorted list. By the way, by adopting a "flat" table structure as shown here together with the other formulas, it doesn't matter where you place the most recent count data in the table...for example, you could append today's count results for all of the branches at the bottom of the data table, and navigating through the table to insert results for each of the branches is not necessary.
