Score formulas


We are having a sales contest this month. The teams (Houses) entered their numbers and we are ready to Identify the winners for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

I was able to identify the 1st place score (Highest Score) using the MAX function and the name of the House (Top Team) with the JOIN function.

BUT, I cannot identify the subsequent scores for 2nd and 3rd place. please help me...

Thank YOU!

    Hi @Score

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    • Add a so-called helper column. You can name it Rank, and add the following formula to it, and fill it down the column.
    =RANKEQ([Oct Team Score]@row, [Oct Team Score]:[Oct Team Score])
    • The use this formula in the Top Team and modify for 2 place and so on.
    =INDEX([House Name]:[House Name], MATCH(1, Ranking:Ranking, 0))
    • Use the following formula to collect the scores.
    =INDEX([Oct Team Score]:[Oct Team Score], MATCH(1, Ranking:Ranking, 0))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!
