# Rank results based on multiple variables

I am ranking (column AH)  the points for a group of members based on if they meet all percentages greater than or equal 100.  My problem is when the point total (column AG) for a non-qualified member is greater than the qualified member.  I cannot figure out how to exclude the non-qualified member from the formula.  I've attached my spreadsheet and my formula is:

=IF(NOT(\$G2>=100%),"Not Qualified",IF(NOT(\$M2>=100%),"Not Qualified",IF(NOT(\$S2>=100%),"Not Qualified",RANK(\$AG2,\$AG2:\$AG4)+SUMPRODUCT(--(\$AG\$2:\$AG\$4=\$AG2),--(\$D\$2:\$D\$4>\$D2)))))

Ignoring row 3 for a moment, please explain in english why row 4 ranks higher than row 2.

Because it has more points than row 2: 36 vs. 34 (column AG)

Hi,

Replace your formula with below for ranking:
``````=IF(OR(\$G2<100%,\$M2<100%,\$S2<100%),"Not Qualified",RANK(\$AG2,\$AG\$2:\$AG\$4)+SUMPRODUCT(--(\$AG\$2:\$AG\$4=\$AG2),--(\$D\$2:\$D\$4>\$D2)))
``````
Add extra column to exclude "Not Qualified" with below formula:
``````=IFERROR(IF(ISNA(RANK(\$AH2,\$AH\$2:\$AH\$4)),"Not Qualified",RANK(\$AH2,\$AH\$2:\$AH\$4)),"")
``````
Hope this helps.

Thanks Shums, but the rank is off in column AI.  How do I reverse it?

Shouldn't it just be this?
``````=IF(NOT(\$G2>=100%),"Not Qualified",IF(OR(NOT(\$M2>=100%),NOT(\$S2>=100%)),"Not Qualified",SUMPRODUCT(--(\$M\$2:\$M\$4>=100%),--(\$S\$2:\$S\$4>=100%),--(\$AG\$2:\$AG\$4>\$AG2))+1))
``````

Right on Subodh!  I did not consider adding column M & S.  What made you go down that path?
Subodh Tiwari (Neeraj)

Because you wanted to rank with those criteria also. :)

Also you can wrap all your Not Qualified conditions within OR criteria like below...

``````=IF(OR(NOT(\$G2>=100%),NOT(\$M2>=100%),NOT(\$S2>=100%)),"Not Qualified",SUMPRODUCT(--(\$M\$2:\$M\$4>=100%),--(\$S\$2:\$S\$4>=100%),--(\$AG\$2:\$AG\$4>\$AG2))+1)
``````

Got it.  I played with it and came across an issue if there is a tie.  I would like to break the tie based on the point with the larger amount in column J.  Can you help?
Subodh Tiwari (Neeraj)

Maybe this Array Formula which will require confirmation with Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of Enter alone.
``````=IF(OR(NOT(\$G2>=100%),NOT(\$M2>=100%),NOT(\$S2>=100%)),"Not Qualified",(IF(COUNTIF(\$AG\$2:\$AG\$4,AG2)=1,SUM((\$M\$2:\$M\$4>=100%)*(\$S\$2:\$S\$4>=100%)*(\$AG\$2:\$AG\$4>\$AG2))+1,SUM((\$M\$2:\$M\$4>=100%)*(\$S\$2:\$S\$4>=100%)*(\$J\$2:\$J\$4>\$J2))+1)))

Thank you both!! I really liked the VBA usage and can use it in other spreadsheets.  Subodh, thank you for your efforts too and making me think differently.
