How do I code a rank in Long format?

So I have this sample data format

IDBlockValueWANT
1A-101
1A02
1A0.523
1A184
1A205
1A256
1b-191
1b0.252
1b0.963
1b214
1b325
1b456

So I want to code a rank based on the values for each ID/block.  All patients have 12 records (6 for block A and 6 for block B). So I did the first step where I used proc sort by ID Block and Value. Now I want to create that WANT variable where it indicates the rank within each ID/Block. What is the easiest way to do this?

Thanks!
