Ranking Numbers in a Dynamic List

Problem:

Range A4:A8 contains a list of numbers that is frequently changed by the addition or removal of numbers. Consequently, the current rank of each number is constantly changing.
We want to create a formula that will automatically update the rankings in column B upon the addition or removal of numbers in column A.

Solution:

Use the RANK, OFFSET, and COUNTA functions in the following formula:
=RANK(A4,OFFSET($A$4,0,0,COUNTA($A$4:$A$9),1))

  1. I used “=RANK(F2,OFFSET($F$2,0,0,COUNTA(F:F)+1,1))” to rank ages where column F held the DOB (“d”) in a dynamic table.
    Worked for me, hope this helps someone out ther?
