Table with a column with RANK formula does not sort properly

I have a table in excel with Rank function that reference another column with numerical values. The results in the column (called Rank) with rank function are as expected but Sorting (ascending or descending) doesn't
work as expected on the column .  The Rank gets sorted in the following order: 1,15, 2,19, 8 , 4......
Few things that I've verified are:
1. Verified that there are no text values in the column.
2. Tried changing the format to number but this still doesn't resolve the sort issue.
3. Copied the values from the Rank column to a different sheet and applying sort works as expected.
Does anyone have any idea on what could be wrong? Appreciate your help!

Resolved the issue. I had an incorrect formula in one of the that was referenced by the Rank column.

  • Please help me out with this error:Logical dimension table D_TARGET has a source D_TARGET that does not join to any fact source.

    It seems your dimension is not joined to any facts. Did you check your BMM/physical joins?

  • Standard Data Collection Failing with Error ORA-04054: database link  does not exist.

    Hi Gurus,
    When I am running Standard Data Collection in ASCP(APS) instance R12.1.3, its failing with error : ORA-04054: database link  does not exist.
    There is no such Database link exits which is showing in above error.
    Also the database link name in the above error is not profile values in the database.
    I think, concurrent might be fetching this database link name  from some tables related to plan.
    I am not having much knowledge about how this ASCP/APS works.
    Need your help to resolve this issue.

  • COPA - Multiple Sales Order with one wbs element.  COPA does not reference

    COPA - Multiple Sales Order with one wbs element.  COPA does not reference of reference of sales order.
    Hi All
    Currently we are in process of implementation of project related to Club Service for one of the client.
    Concept of this project is - there is "X" company engaged in supporting the different shared services for their client e.g. Client IBM - Shared Support Services of IBM is
    u2022     IDM
    u2022     Software Installation
    u2022     Help Desk
    u2022     Maintenance
    Co.. "X' is performing these services for IBM.    So for Co. "X" - IBM is one engagement. Like this way Co. X is performing such activities for many companies e.g. microsoft, HP, ABN AMRO etc.
    Objective - Get the consolidate report from COPA (Customer wise/services wise/sales order wise e.g. IBM/HelpDesk/10002/10).
    We propose a solution to create a project for each engagement and with WBS element. Each WBS element of different services e.g.
    Project IBM Inc.  100.100
    WBS Element    100.100.IDM 
    WBS Element    100.100.SoftIns
    WBS Element    100.100.HelpDesk
    WBS Element    100.100.Maintainance
    For this engagement (IBM), we are creating a sales order with line items (for services) and account assignment is WBS element.  In a sales order, there may be two lines for one services.   In a particular period, there are many such sales orders for this engagement... Milestone billing/period billing is used depending upon the services rendered.
    Now Cost Object will be WBS Element. So cost and revenue will posted to WBS and from this it goes to COPA.  In a month of May 2009 two - sales order is booked with three different line items with account assignment is WBS element.
    Sales Order Line Item No.....Item                  Account Assignment                      Revenue
    10000          100     IDM      100.100.IDM              1000
    10000          200     HELPDESK      100.100.HelpDesk              2000
    10000          100     Maintenance      100.100.Maintainance         3000
    Another Sales order booked with two different line items
    10000          100      IDM     100.100.IDM          3000
    10000          200      HELPDESK     100.100.HelpDesk          4000
    Cost will be booked directly against WBS element.
    In sales order level, there is no profitability segment, as cost object is WBS element.
    Billing, revenue will be posted directly to wbs element, from this revenue and cost of sales goes to COPA.
    Now in COPA,
    1.There is only one line for WBS element ex. 100.100.IDM with revenue 4000 (combing both the sales order)
    2.There is only one line for WBS element ex. 100.100.HelpDesk with revenue 6000 (combing both the sales order)
    3.There is only one line for WBS element ex. 100.100.Maintainance with revenue 4000
    In above case 1 & 2 we will not have reference of sales order and sales order line item in COPA table. There is only one line for this.  So we can not have reporting to sales order level.
    Is there any way by this the reference of sales order and sales order line will come in COPA for case 1 & 2.
    Please help in this issue.

    For these case (multiple materials with different characteristics); have you consider going to next level of WBS Elements. Meaning; lets say currently you are assigning WBS "Engineering (which is a level 2 WBS)" to all the items in SO. Instead under "Engineering" create 2 or 3 level 3 WBS Elements as E1, E2 etc and assign them 1:1 to your sales order line items. This would eliminate the exit as welll as complex development option. And also will let you get all the data in COPA and in turn you can pull to BW as well for reporting. Just a thought.

  • TS1702 When I update to IOS6 on my 4S Facebook does not work properly, the news feed never updates it only says no new storeys and shows a picture of an antenna. When I reset my phone and go back to IOS5 Facebook works fine. What's up with IOS6 ????

    When I update my iPhone 4S to iOS six Facebook does not work properly the newsfeed doesn't load properly and I can never see what's going on all I see is a picture of an antenna and a little thing underneath it says no new stories when I reset my phone back to iOS 5 then it works just fine and I don't have any issues so there must be something wrong with iOS six that isn't letting Facebook load properly

    No I did not use any unauthorized methods for anything, I simply reset my phone back to factory.

  • I have a Ipod touch and recently added new music to my itunes library on my laptop. When I sync with my ipod, the new music does not show up on my ipod even though the sync process seems to be working.

    I have an Ipod touch and recently added new music to my Itunes library. When I sync with the library, the new music does not show up on my ipod. The sync process seems to be working and there is still plenty of space on the Ipod for new music so I'm not sure what the problem is!

    What happens when you try to sync?
    Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    Do the songs play in iTunes?
    Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?

  • I bought a new imac running Loin and Office 2011. The server we use to access emails runs exchange 2003 and my IT person says the imac is not compatible with the server. The server does not want to let me access using any email software.

    I bought a new imac running Loin with Office 2011. I am the only mac in the office and the Server we use to access emails runs exchange 2003 and my IT person says the imac is not compatible with the server. The server does not want to let me access using any email software other than webmail access through our website. It looks as though 2011 is not compatible with 2003 per some searches online, but what are some options I have to gain full access again? I purchased parallels in hopes that this my help and I am able to use remote desktop connection to log on to server but can not drag and drop files I need. There is a shared drive on that Server we all use to exchange files.
    The two main issues are gaining access to my email again and ability to drag and drop files from mac to pc. I hope this is enough info to get some solutions.
    PS - IT person says my iMac's IP is what his server does not understand so that is why I can not login.

  • When closing 2 windows(with multiple tabs each), system restore does not properly restore the second window's tabs. Is this a bug in the new update/any ideas to fix?

    I regularly use 2 windows with multiple tabs each and session restore would work to get them all back, but after this latest update the second window does not restore properly, with the first tab not visible on top(only in drop down menu) and the add a tab button now on the left(instead of right). The add a tab button is not really concerning other than it indicates other problems with the tabs on tab of the 2nd window. Not having the 1st tab visible is frustrating, because I can not move it or as easily navigate. Also, the tabs on top of the 2nd window that are visible no longer have the "x" to close visible unless that tab is selected. I'm assuming this is a problem with the new release/update, since this is the first time I've ever encountered the problem, and I've shut down and restored Firefox a few times to make sure this was a recurring problem and not a one-time deal. Any ideas on how to fix would be welcome(other than perhaps cramming my tabs onto one window or sucking it up XD).

    Yes, my telco is an approved carrier. If my phone was brand new, I think so, they opened it in front of me.. I really couldn't remember it was 1.4 years ago. It did seem new.
    Well it says, "_____" cannot be used to unlock this iphone. I've tried both my apple ids but it didn't work.

  • I applied a template to a page with SWFs and now that page does not play the SWFs. Why?

    I applied a template to a page with SWFs and now that page does not play the SWFs (just a blank area where the SWF should be). When I detach the template it will play the flash file. This site will eventually be updated via Adobe Contribute. And I just discovered that when applying a template to a page that uses HTML datasets (Master/Detail),it no longer reads the Master/detail regions and displays a blank. Any thoughts?
    [Moved to Dreamweaver forum by moderator]

    Firstly, you shouldn't really 'apply' a template to a page, you should create a child page by going to FILE>NEW>Page from Template.  Too many things can happen when applying a template the way you are doing it. eg:; editable and non-editable regions not matching up and being asked where to place these regions and in all likelihood, you end up with 2 or more of the same region.
    When a swf file is inserted into a page, a corresponding Scripts folder is written automatically is stored in the root of the site - it is also linked to in the head of the document. What I believe is happening is that when you apply a template to the page, the Template has no idea that there is a swf file on the page and is not aware of the correct link to the Scripts folder.  If you do a test and add the swf file to the template page itself, I bet that the links to the swf and the scripts folder are correct - because DW knows the correct path to the script file.   Hence the reason the page probably works when you detach it from a template.

    Thanks for the reply.  I tried playing with detaching the audio in iMovie, but with 20+ hours of video to correct, it would take too long.  After 28 hours, Corel/Roxio tech support replied that it is a known bitrate mismatch problem and they have no real fix.  I strongly suggest not to buy this product.

  • HT1473 I can load a CD on my PC to iTunes but when I sync with my iPhone 5S the CD does not load onto my iPhone. I used to be able to do this with no problem on my iPhone 4. Help!

    I can load a CD on to my PC - iTunes but when I sync with my iPhone 5s the CD does not load onto my iPhone 5S.

    You can sort your library by adding a Sorting info in the File Info. Select a file in iTunes U, press cmd + i, choose Sorting Tab. For example add a Sort Name. For each file you have to put a value into that field, I did it with 01, 02, 03 .. 12. I do not know if this works if you select multiple files, but I did not try.
    The next time you sync your device, your files will be in order. It' ve tested it on an iPad2.
    If you ask me, there must be a better solution for that problem as the files have a track number saved in the info as well, and it is quite annoying to add the sorting order manually.

  • HT1347 I have an mp3 DVD with episodes of Gunsmoke.  iTunes imports them, but does not sort them correctly by date or episode.  One file name is GS 52-04-26 001 Billy the Kid.mp3

    I have an mp3 DVD with episodes of Gunsmoke.  iTunes imports them, but does not sort them correctly by date or episode.  One file name is GS 52-04-26 001 Billy the Kid.mp3.  iTunes sorts them by month/day/year.  How can I fix that?

    The weird thing is, it worked before. I encoded all the videos previously and had them all listed and didn't encounter this problem, but I noticed I'd forgotten to decomb/detelecine the videos so I deleted everything and re-encoded it all. AFter filling the tags out and setting poster frames again I was thinking of making life easier by just pasting the same artwork for every episode, so I did, but didn't like the results so I deleted it again (I selected every video, used Get Info and pasted the artwork that way).
    I think it was after this that the problem started to occur. In any case I've been through every episode and made sure the name, series, episode and episode id fields are all filled in with incremental values and they are. I even made sure the Sort Name field was filled in on every video. But this didn't work either.
    So, thinking another restart was needed I deleted every video again. Re-encoded them all, again. Set the tags for every video and poster frame again. Finished it all off nicely, checked cover flow and was highly annoyed to find it was STILL showing the same two pieces of art work for every video as shown in that image I posted.
    Ultimately, I wouldn't care so much that cover flow is screwing up like this as I always intended to sort by program anyway so it would only ever display one piece of artwork for an entire series of videos, however where-as when it was working it picked the artwork for the first episode of a series to display, its instead picking one of the latter episodes. I can't seem to find any way of choosing what artwork I want displayed.
