st: ratings to rankings data

I've spent some time searching for how to do this, but I haven't been able to find it. Hopefully, you all will be able to come up with something.

I have 10 "values" variables (val1 - val10) that respondents have rated in importance from 1 to 6. I would like to turn these values into rankings rather than ratings. That is, I'd like "1" to signify a respondent's highest rated value, "2" their next most important, etc. (Obviously with 10 variables and 6 levels of rating, there will be many ties.) FWIW, the ultimate objective here is to use these as dependent variables in a rank-ordered logit model.

Any help you could give me would be appreciated. Thanks!
