RANKX in Matrix Herarchy, but not in all levels.

Guys, good morning \ afternoon \ evening everyone.

I need help with the creation of a RANKX that i've been struggling to resolve this for a few days but so far I haven't been able to.

My database is a denormalized table with 31 columns, with only one dimension, a calculated table for calendar.

Sample

My customer asks to create a Matrix that contains the following order:

- Category
- Top 5 Supplier Group by Spend
- All Top 5 Supplier Names
- All Items from Supplier Name

 

and this matrix will be filtered by some slicers that come from the same table.

*My rank needs to be applied only to suppliers by category, not names and items.*

In the first attempt I did a RANKX as it follows

Rank = RANKX (ALL (f_Data [Supplier - Group]), [Spend])

where the Spend measure is a sum of the column Spend


 Spend = SUM (f_Data [Spend])

and without filtering the Rank in the visual it worked kinda well,

but when filtering, it gave a memory error. Then I changed the measure to look at the other columns:

Rank = CALCULATE (
RANKX (
ALL (f_Data [Supplier - Group])
, [Spend]),
ALL (f_Data [Supplier - Name]),
ALL (f_Data [Item - Description])
)

So there was no memory error, but the rank was wrong, and when I put Spend measure in the matrix values it is still wrong, and the rank brings in some categories only 4 and not 5.

I already tried several ways (separate table, ISINSCOPE and ISFILTERED in the measure, FILTER with ALL and ALLSELECT, etc.) and nothing worked the way it needs to.

If someone has already done something like this and can help me, i really appreciate it.

@Jonas_Jordao , Please try one of the two option and check if they can help

 

Rank = CALCULATE (
RANKX (
ALL (f_Data [Supplier - Group],f_Data [Supplier - Name],f_Data [Item - Description])
, [Spend])


or


Rank = CALCULATE (
RANKX (
ALL (f_Data)
, [Spend])

 

 

Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

Hello @amitchandak , and thanks for the reply. I tried the rankx options, but unfortunately they didn't work. 


The first option - RANKX ALL 3 columns - gave the same error, didn't classify correctly

The second option - RANKX ALL f_Data - ranked the rank with 1 for all.

The sample table as requested is at the link (I left a dynamic table of how I need the result to be in the PBI):

 

Sample Data - Google Drive 

 

And thanks again for the help.
