Hey again, guys.

I have a new problem, that I can´t get to the solution after trying a lot of formulas, and being stuck to this for a day.

So, I have an excel file where I compare several quotes to make a decision.
I have spaces to compare nine quotes, but I don't always get nine, leaving some blank.

Thats where my problems begin.

I'm trying to have them ranked with a formula, but I'm not able to ignore the blank cells and they end up being ranked as well.

I have this formula:

=IF(J32;RANK.EQ(J32;($J$32;$O$32;$T$32;$Y$32;$AD$32;$AI$32;$AN$32;$AS$32;$AX$32);1)+COUNTIF($J$32:J32;J32)-1;"")


This one takes care of repeated rankings and all that, but it does not take care of blank cells, considering them the first ranks.
The cell that shows the ranking stays blank, but it is still ranked and I need this formula to completely ignore blank cells


Thanks to all of you

Try this one then

Excel Formula:
=RANK.EQ(J32,$J$32:$AS$32)+COUNTIF($J$32:J32,J32)-1

Skovgaard, this one worked.

Funny, because I had tried a similar formula, that wasn't working as I intended...

Well, many thanks to you

Excel Facts

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.

Skovgaard, now, this one doesn't ignore tha blank cell...

I'm starting to think that this cant be solved that easy and maybe I will need to create conditions in the formula to not have the empty cells in the rank.eq range.

Will try some things

Ok, found the solution.

The totals that I'm ranking, are calculated by a SUM formula, and that was the problem.

So, I had to change the formula to:

=(IF(AND(J13:J31=0);"";SUM(J13:J31))

Then, my ranking looks like this:

=IF(J32="";"";RANK.EQ(J32;$J$32:$AS$32;1)+COUNTIF($J$32:J32;J32)-1)

This way, everything works as expected, empty cells are ignored, and I don't have a repeated ranking.

Thanks for the help
