    Ranking Table Help

    So, I have a table of scores from players for a category I have. It looks like this:

    Place-------------Name-------------Country-------------Score
    1st---------------Jim----------------USA--------------------376
    2nd--------------Michael-----------Germany-------------364
    2nd--------------Tim---------------USA-----------------364
    4th---------------John--------------Norway-------------355


    So, basically, if one of the guys, for example, John were to improve his score to a 369, I'd change the score in Excel, then use the sort feature to put him above Michael and Tim. Only problem is, it would say his place is still 4th place, and it doesn't change to 2nd place.

    I want it so the "Place" column automatically changes to the correct rank based on the score the person has. So if I changed John's 355 score to 369 and hit sort by A-Z, Excel would automatically change the "Place" he's in appropriately so it would look like this:

    Place-------------Name-------------Country-------------Score
    1st---------------Jim----------------USA--------------------376
    2nd--------------John--------------Norway--------------369
    3rd---------------Michael-----------Germany-------------364
    3rd--------------Tim----------------USA-----------------364


    Is it possible to do this?

    If not, does anyone know any programs that can do it?

    Put a formula In A2 and down, =ROW()-1.

    If you particularly want an ordinal (1st, 2nd, etc.) there are other alternatives.
