# Rank with Ordinal Suffix

Figure 1. of Rank with Ordinal Suffix.

## Generic Formula

This Excel Function is two-fold!

1. If we are required to list certain items according to their rank (least to largest) in Excel, we are going to utilize the RANK Function.

`=RANK(number,range)`

1. If we are required to list certain items in ordinal manner (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc,) with suffixes in Excel, we are going to utilize the CHOOSE Function.

`=CHOOSE(number,range)`

## How to use the RANK and CHOOSE Functions in Excel.

Our purpose here is to provide Ranking with Ordinal Suffix for a number of clothing items in a shop. We are going to utilize both the RANK and CHOOSE Functions in our worksheet to achieve our desired results.

We can do this by following five simple steps.

1. Collect the data values available for ranking and arrange within the columns of our worksheet. See example illustrated below;

Figure 2. of Clothing Items for Ranking in Excel.

1. Label the next column, RANK, where Excel will determine the ranking of the clothing items according to their quantity. The RANK formula which we will enter into the formula bar for cell C2 of our worksheet is as follows; =RANK(B2,B2:B8)

1. Modify and copy the RANK formula in cell C2 into the other cells in the RANK column to achieve our desired results.

1. Label another column, ORDINAL RANK, where Excel can list the items in ordinal manner and attach the appropriate suffixes. The CHOOSE formula we are going to enter into the formula bar for cell D2 of our worksheet, is as follows;

`=CHOOSE(C2,"st","nd","rd","th","th","th","th")`

Figure 5. of CHOOSE Function in Excel.

1. Modify and copy the CHOOSE formula in cell D2, into the other cells in the ORDINAL RANK column to get the desired results.

Ordinal number values signify a sequential order of rank or position. Commonly written as a number followed by a letter suffix (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc).
