PERCENTRANK.EXC(array, x, [significance])
  • array - required, data set with numeric values
  • x - required, value to find the rank of
  • significance - [OPTIONAL]

Examples

  • PERCENTRANK.EXC(A2:A10, 7)

    The PERCENTRANK.EXC function can be used to calculate the rank of a value in an array. For example, this returns the rank of the value 7 from the array in column A of the range A2:A10.

  • PERCENTRANK.EXC(A2:A10, 5.43)

    The PERCENTRANK.EXC function can also be used to calculate the rank of a value that is not the highest in the array. For example, this returns the rank of the value 5.43 in the same array, with 5.43 placed at the position of the highest rank.

  • PERCENTRANK.EXC(A2:A10, 5.43, 1)

    The PERCENTRANK.EXC function can also be used to calculate the rank of a value with a specific number of significant digits. For example, this returns the rank of the value 5.43 in the same array with 5 significant digits.
