Hey Pete back again ....

I have the same issue with this formula when I delete an entry.
It just keeps the remaining higher numbers of ranking because of the deletes. It assumes the celss I delete are part of the ranks.
The formula works fine except when I delete. Here is that formula ... What do I do to it to correct the ranking of it?

=SUMPRODUCT((ABS(R6-0)>ABS(R$6:R$20-0))+0)+1

Thanks so Much Pete!

I have the same issue with this formula ...
1. In words, what is this formula supposed to be doing?
2. Is it being used in Conditional Formatting like the previous ones?
3. What cell(s) is the formula applied in?


... when I delete an entry.
4. Do you mean deleting a whole row like in the previous problem or just deleting a value out of a cell or something else?

Hey Pete,

This formula ranks the closest to zero as well.
It is being used in conditional formatting.
The formula is being applied to all entries in the column.

4) Yes, same exact issue when I delete a row or even a cell.

I hope this helps ...

Thanks again,
U.S.

This is what happens when I have no data in the cells because I have no entries.
I may have only 8 entries or maybe just 6 or even 10.
But this is what happens on the formatting. It wants to include all rows no matter what.

Here is my example for 15 entries.
Now when I delete the last 7 because of no data, it will delete l the #1's or the last 7.
The remaining top 8 will be ranked but not using the lowest numbers for ranking value.
I think the 14,6 needs to be input in the statement somehow of the ABS.

15
13
12
10
9
8
11
14
1

So, why not use the CF formulas from post #11 ?

Because I want to rank them with a number system of 1-2-3 etc. in a different column.

Lowest being number 1 and so on.

Hey Pete,

By the way ... wanted to let you know that I am using that formula from post 11 in a column.

Now what I want to do is rank that column with the numerical (1,2,3) ranking system I stated above.
I was able to rank them but the deleted rows affect the column of numerical ranks as you can see above.

Thanks and much appreciated!
