    Google Sheets: Find Most Occurring Text

    Hello,

    I am trying to find the most occurring text in my range.

    This formula works well to find the most occurring text


    =ARRAYFORMULA(INDEX(A1:A17,MATCH(MAX(COUNTIF(A1:A17,A1:A17)),COUNTIF(A1:A17,A1:A17),0)))

    Now, I want to tweak the formula to find the second highest, third higest etc.

    Please let me know.

    This is not an Excel formula - are you using Google Sheets?

    Yes, it does make a difference. I am moving this to the correct forum sub-section.

    You can use LARGE:

    =ARRAYFORMULA(INDEX(A1:A17,MATCH(LARGE(COUNTIF(A1:A17,A1:A17),2),COUNTIF(A1:A17,A1:A17),0)))

    adjust the 2 to whatever value you want.
