Excel Pivot Tables have a lot of useful calculations under the SHOW VALUES AS option and one that can help you a lot is the RANK SMALLEST TO LARGEST calculation.

This option will immediately calculate the rankings (1 being the smallest value) for your values, allowing you to pinpoint the risks or opportunities quickly!

In the example below I show you how to get the Rank Smallest to Largest:

STEP 4: Select the Show Values As tab and from the drop down choose Rank Smallest to Largest.  

Select Sales Month as the Base Field.

This means that we will rank the Sales Values by the Sales Month (where Rank 1 is the Smallest).

Also change the Custom Name into Rank Smallest to Largest to make it more presentable. Click OK.
