When speaking about table calculations a repeated request is to show ranking over time based on for example cumulative sales. Usually, the question will be why what the asker is doing does not work as intended. Lets have a look at the most common reason.

One thing that you may have stumbled upon is when you are trying to swap a sheet that is text only. In this case, the text only sheet will not entirely collapse. Let's quickly dive into how to solve that.
A while ago a user wanted to be able to show in a tooltip the deviations of the running sums of his actuals vs the running sums of several different budgets, depending on which budget the user would hover over
Just as I had finished my blog on how to transfer results of a table calculation from one sheet to another, a new but related question popped up on the forums. This time, the user wanted to compare two independent rankings. I.e. he did not want to compare on a product level but instead he wanted to compare Rank#1 from Ranking A to Rank#1 from Ranking B etc where both rankings could be based on completely independent filters.
