Dynamic Rank Order

I'm working with a dataset of 4.5 million entries, spanning 3 years and multiple other criteria that I'd like to slice the data on.  Where I'm struggling is trying to get the financial values to re-rank based off the criteria selected.

 

I have the following fields in my data, all in one table:

PID: unique identifier for each person, may be duplicated across years but not within a single year

OM: sum of the financial value for each person in a given year

Year: the three years (2018-2020) in my dataset

Age: Person's age

Gender: Person's gender

Category: A buyer classification

 

Example (dummy) data:

At a bare minimum, I'd like to rank order OM and be able to see all three years or filter to a single year. 

Example: Ordering within year 2018

Ranking across the whole dataset:

MQCrawford_1-1631039199181.png

Ideally, I'd like to apply other filters, such as Category.

Do I need to create a new measure or column for every subset I want to explore?  Can I create one dynamic function that will recalculate when different filters are applied?

 

Thanks,

Michael

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Try this measure

Rank = RANKX(ALLSELECTED('Table'),CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[OM])),,DESC,Dense)

Hi Stephen,

Thank you for your help with this.  I tested your solution and it works on the test data.  Unfortunately, when I apply it to the full dataset, I'm getting strange results (see below).

This is on the unfiltered data (so, all years 2018-2020).  As you can see, there's a tied rank for #7 and #19, even though the OM values are different.  The rank ordering also skips #13 for no apparent reason.

Do you have any ideas as to what is causing this?
