Question description:
This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.

I want to create Column C with a top three list. The data would be sorted by Column B and would also display the information from Column A i.e. if Column A2 is a name and B2 is a value, if it's the highest value of the column it would read A2 - B2 in Cell C2.
