PERCENTRANK.EXC function

Returns the rank of a value in a data set as a percentage (0..1, exclusive) of the data set.

Syntax

PERCENTRANK.EXC(array,x,[significance])

The PERCENTRANK.EXC function syntax has the following arguments:

  • Array     Required. The array or range of data with numeric values that defines relative standing

  • X     Required. The value for which you want to know the rank.

  • Significance     Optional. A value that identifies the number of significant digits for the returned percentage value. If omitted, PERCENTRANK.EXC uses three digits (0.xxx).

Remarks

  • If array is empty, PERCENTRANK.EXC returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If significance < 1, PERCENTRANK.EXC returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If x does not match one of the values in array, PERCENTRANK.EXC interpolates to return the correct percentage rank.
