 REMARKS
 * RANK.EQ was added in Excel 2010 to replace this function.* For an illustrated example refer to the page under Advanced Functions* The "ref" does not have to be sorted into any particular order.* If "ref" contains any non numeric values, then these are ignored. See Example 12.* If "order" = "0", then the smallest numbers are given the largest rank.* If "order" = "1", then the largest numbers are given the largest rank.* If "order" is left blank, then 0 is used.* Any duplicate numbers are given the same rank. See Example 4.* You can use the RANK.AVG function to return average ranking when more than one value has the same rank.* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com* For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com
