I am crating a database to compute student scores for a contest. I have most of it done, but cannot find a way to easily/ automatically calculate their rank. For instances the highest score is 1, next highest 2, etc. Any help would be great.

What is the structure of your tables? What happens where there is a tie? Do you need to store their ranking of only for display purposes. Any further details would help.

The table is set up with a variety of catagories that the scores are entered into. Then there is a field for the total score, which is calculated by adding the other together. I would like ties to show the same rank, with the next value being skipped. For instance a tie for 2nd place would show both records being 2, and no 3rd listed.

The rank would be used to sort records, assign awards, and be exported.
