What is the easiest way to create deciles in excel for ranked data. I would prefer to do it w/o having to use VBA code.

thanks

Create a Pivot Table on a Map
If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).

How would you like to decile? Equal buckets (i.e. each decile has 1,000 accounts)? Or equal value (i.e. each decile has a market value of \$100MM, so that there are tons of accounts in decile 1 and a handful of decile 10 powerhouses)?

Deciles: "Rank" data into ten groups of equal frequencies.

So Sort the data. Then: count the number of data items, divide that number by 10. Next group the sorted data into another location based on the count divided by 10. Do this nine more times to get a total of ten location groups of sorted data each containing about the same number of data elements.

i would prefer whatever fit the data the best. but since that would vary too much equal buckets would be fine.

I am trying to find VBA code that would create decile ranks (equal bucket style) based on the Excel's 2003 rank function. Does any one have any ideas?

Here is a prior post that i started with:

Data is in col A, Excel's rank function is in col B and in col C is the rank value/divided by the max value in col B. This will make the excel rank standard. Does anyone know to automate the bin values so i can apply a similar approach to the Barry Katcher's link above?

Code:
``````Data	Rank	n/max
11.20	1	0.0027
3.48	2	0.0054
3.43	3	0.0081
3.39	4	0.0108
2.76	5	0.0135
2.67	6	0.0162

2.38	9	0.0243
