Posted on 2014-12-01

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 ?

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