Assuming you want the position displayed as a field on their record, I think (given that you're dealing with historic info that isn't going to change) I'd consider creating a non-user-editable field on that panel and then I'd create a report that populates that field for each record. Run the report once and all of the records are updated. If you add new historic records, run the report again. Maybe not as spiffy as having the field update on the fly, but seems like it could be easier to implement.

I have a panel with the vote counts of a handful of candidates from past elections entered and a total of the votes cast with a computed field telling me what each candidate's percentage of the vote was in that particular district. What I'm looking for is a way to indicate what each candidate's position was in the race in that district - someone came in first, second, third, and etc.

I am envisioning writing very long formulas to accomplish this but am wondering if anyone can think of a better way of getting there.
