Hello,

put the numbers from 1 to 20 into cells E2 to E21. Copy down so you have these 20 numbers for each group.

Put the dates next to that, starting in F2. Then you can use this array formula in G2

=LARGE(IF($A$1:$A$773=F2,$C$1:$C$773,0),E2)

You need to confirm with Ctrl-Shift-Enter. Then copy down.

yo bee, while a pivot table can be filtered to show top x values, the one you posted does not apply this technique. Where are the top 20? A pivot will not work here, I think, because it will also add the data from the same day, so the 20 highest values of the month cannot be shown.
