I have a spreadsheet where cells, says A1 B1 C1 .....XX1 contains numerical values which are the result of some calculation
I want to have cells A2 B2 C2 ... XX2 containing the ranking (descending values) of corresponding values A1 B1 C1 ... XX1
For example with 5 cells A1 B1 C1 D1 E1 containing  12  23  98  33  10, cells A2 B2 C2 D2 D2 should contain 4  3  1  2  5
Is there a formula to calculate that ?
Thanks

I forgot to write that some of these A1 B1 ... cells are empty and so should not participate to the ranking at all

If you are using Excel 2003 or earlier:

=IF(A1="","",RANK(A1,$A$1:$A$5))
