# Excel formula / Macro ?

#### Guest

I operate a football pool for the season (approx 140 entries) Briefly, here
is what it looks like;

Current Name Total points Week One WeekTwo Week Three ect.

1 Joe 35 11 13
11
2 Sam 34 12 12
10
3 Bob 33 12 12
9

What I would like to add is a Column for their standing the previous week,
in this case Week Two. It would hopefully look like this;

Current Previous Name Total Points Week One Week Two
Week Three
1 6 Joe 35 11
13 11
2 4 Sam 34 12
12 10

There will be approx 140 rows and I sort by Total Points

Is this a formula or a macro ?

Thanks

Bob

Hi Robert,
It is easiest if you first add a column for the total to last week, so in
your example Week 1 + Week 2 and then extend this sum each week.

Then you can use the RANK function, so if last week's total is H1:H140, use
RANK(H1, H\$1:H\$140) and that should put 1 in the highest value, 2 in the
next highest etc. If my understanding of your problem is correct, that
should be the same as their positions in the previous week.

Roger,

Sorry about my delay in replying, out on the town.

Your idea works perfectly. I inserted a column for the previous week and
can hide it from view. As always, I was probably trying to make it more
complicated than it needed.

Thanks so much,

Bob
