  1. Hello..This is very helpful to me in ranking a range which has duplicate values. But when I copy the rank to another blank excel with values I get decimal value also ..For Ex. rank 3 showing as 3.000012 and 4 as 4.000036 aswell..how can I prevent this and get only the rank as 3 and 4 ..How to resolve it without a Round(,0)function wrapped your formula?
