Considerations when using the RANK.EQ function

  • columnName cannot refer to any column created using these functions: ADDCOLUMNS, ROW or SUMMARIZE.I
  • If value is not in columnName or value is a blank, then RANK.EQ returns a blank value.
  • Duplicate values of value receive the same rank value; the next rank value assigned will be the rank value plus the number of duplicate values. For example if five (5) values are tied with a rank of 11 then the next value will receive a rank of 16 (11 + 5).
