With the function Percentrank i can get the % position of a number within a list


$429,423,144 returns 16%

This is fine when you have the numbers in front of you, is there a way a user could type in $410,376,876 and then get the relative position of that number.

Many thanks

Are you expecting 6 as the return value, and are you only looking for exact matches? If not, assuming your list is sorted descending:


where A1 is the lookup value and B1:B7 is your value list. (If you want exact matches only, change the -1 to 0)
