`=RANK(C2,C\$2:C\$5)` #3 select one new column, such as: Column E, and type one column name in the first cell. And select the second new column next to the column E, and type the column name as product. Then select the third new column next to the column F, type the column name as Sales in the Cell G1. #4 insert the sequence numbers in the range of cells E2:E5 #5 type the following formula into the formula box of the cell F2, and press Enter key.
