Default How do you rank in order numbers from highest to the lowest?

For Example

Current Points Current Place

Using the "Large" function - "=Large( array, 2 )" will return the second
largest number in the array.

With data in A2 to A8, enter this in B2, and copy down:

=RANK(A2,$A$2:$A$8)

If you don't want the duplicates ranked the same
=RANK(A2,A$2:A$10)+COUNTIF(A$2:A2,A2)-1
