DAX FUNCTION FOR TIERS?

 I want to create a table with three columns: Sales Rep, Dollar Amount and Tier. Right now all I have is the Sales Rep and Dollar amount columns. I want to dynamically group Sales Rep with  Dollar Amount so that each row is based on 5 tiers.  In other words the 1st 20% of Sales Reps with the most dollar amount value receive a tier 1....the next 20% a tier 2...etc...

 

Is there anyway to do this?

Hi @EMassicot ,

 

Taking into account that you have only those two columns you can do it in the following way:

  • Create a new column with the following syntax:

 

Tiers =
VAR rankingValue =
    DIVIDE ( RANKX ( 'Table', 'Table'[Sales] ), COUNTROWS ( 'Table' ) )
RETURN
    SWITCH (
        TRUE (),
        rankingValue < 0.20, 1,
        rankingValue >= 0.20
            && rankingValue < 0.4, 2,
        rankingValue >= 0.40
            && rankingValue < 0.6, 3,
        rankingValue >= 0.60
            && rankingValue < 0.8, 4,
        rankingValue >= .80
            && rankingValue <= 1, 5
    )

Hi,

Do you want a measure or a calculated column formula?
