# Finding 1st and 2nd highest values from a series of variables

I am looking for some assistance in compiling some code to complete this task.

I have this code:
Code:
``````    ttl_trns = WorksheetFunction.CountIf(ws_core.Range("E:E") = "*T")
ttl_trns_hp = WorksheetFunction.CountIfs(ws_core.Range("E:E") = "*T", ws_core.Range("J:J") = "HP")
ttl_trns_rp = WorksheetFunction.CountIfs(ws_core.Range("E:E") = "*T", ws_core.Range("J:J") = "RP")
ttl_trns_wp = WorksheetFunction.CountIfs(ws_core.Range("E:E") = "*T", ws_core.Range("J:J") = "WP")``````

Untested, I hope it will return the total number of occurrences of column E values ending in "T" and the value in column J equaling "HP", "RP", and "WP" respectively.

Consider these sample results ...

ttl_trns_hp = 3
ttl_trns_rp = 0
ttl_trns_wp = 1

Of these three values, I need to find the highest value and who it belongs to. In this case, 3 is the highest value and it represents data with column J = "HP"
then ...
I need to find the second highest value, and to who it belongs. In this case, 1 belonging to WP.

I would welcome any suggestions on how to make this work efficiently.

### Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},\$Z\$1:\$Z\$99,\$Y\$1:\$Y\$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.
Correction on my code so far:
Code:
``````    ttl_trns = WorksheetFunction.CountIf(ws_core.Range("E:E"), "*T")
ttl_trns_hp = WorksheetFunction.CountIfs(ws_core.Range("E:E"), "*T", ws_core.Range("J:J"), "HP")
ttl_trns_rp = WorksheetFunction.CountIfs(ws_core.Range("E:E"), "*T", ws_core.Range("J:J"), "RP")
ttl_trns_wp = WorksheetFunction.CountIfs(ws_core.Range("E:E"), "*T", ws_core.Range("J:J"), "WP")``````
