In the below sheet, I have a list of participants who compete in a fishing tournament. They each have the option to contribute to a 5, 10, or 20 dollar option, or pot of cash. Based upon how they place determines their payout of the individual options. So 1st place gets 50% of the total from each option he/she contributes to, 2nd place get 30%, and 3 place gets 20%. Now, if an individual does not contribute to an option, then the next highest place gets that next allotment of cash. So you can see below that Name2 did not contribute to the $10 option, so Name3 got the 30% of the $10 option, and nothing from the $5 and $20 options. Name4 got the 20% of the $5 option, Name5 got the 20% from the $10 option, and Name6 got the 20% of the $20 option. I would like to generate a formula/macro for each of the $5, $10, and $20 option cells in order to calculate the individual payouts of cash based upon contribution and place. Could someone please look at this and lead in me the right direction? Thanks in advance.

Just to set one thing straight, should Name3 be the number 4 ? I mean, his fish weight is 9.85 vs Name4 who weights 9.99.
