    Using the Sumproduct formula to rank a group within a list-how to i adapt it to break tie?

    Hi all, i am using the following formula Sumproduct(($a$2:a$10702=a2)*($c2:$c$10702>c2))+1
    Column A is the groups and Column C is the $ sales that i want ranked within these groups. I am doing an index match function to pull the customer (column B) on anther sheet by rank, but it returns blank for 3rd place when two customers are tied for 2nd.
    Thanks all, any help on this would be appreciated.

    Re: Using the Sumproduct formula to rank a group within a list-how to i adapt it to break

    • A. B. C D - rank
    • 4991406. Bob's garage. $50.00. 2
    • 4991406. Ted's garage. $75.00. 1
    • 4991406. Greg's garage. $50.00. 2
      4991584. Evan's garage. $ 25.00. 1

      On another spreadsheet i have a drop down list for the dealer number (column A) with a top 10 list numbered 1 thru 10. I have an index match function to return the customer(column B) based on rank. Because 4991406 has two dealers ranked at 2 it returns 0 as the customer name for the 3rd rank. I am fine with it returning the first customer that is ranked as 2 and the other customer as 3rd.
      Hope this explains it properly.

    Are these the results you want:

    Data Range
    A
    B
    C
    D
    1
    Header1
    Header2
    Header3
    Header4
    2
    4991406
    Bob's garage
    50
    2
    3
    4991406
    Ted's garage
    75
    1
    4
    4991406
    Greg's garage
    50
    3
    5
    4991584
    Evan's garage
    25
    1


    This array formula** entered in D2 and copied down:

    =SUM(IF(A$2:A$5=A2,IF(C$2:C$5>C2,1)))+SUMPRODUCT(--(A$2:A2=A2),--(C$2:C2=C2))

    ** array formulas need to be entered using the key
    combination of CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER).
    Hold down both the CTRL key and the SHIFT key
    then hit ENTER.
