Ranking a number field against the same field in all records in the table

I have a Filemakerpro 8.5 database with a Table of UK Companies.  One of the number fields on the Companies Table is the size of the company.  I want to add a calculation field which will calculate the rank of the size of that Company against the size of each of the other companies in the Table.  In other words I want to rank the size field in this record against the size fields in all the other records in the table.  Working in Excel, I would simply use the Rank function.  

But I can’t find any similar calculation function in Filemaker, and I can’t see how to structure such a calculation.  

I’d be grateful for guidance.
