## Re: Dynamic topn()

Try the following

1. Create table called as Measure with column names - MeasureId, MeasureName

Eg :  Row 1 -  1, Quantity

Row 2 - 1, Value

Create as many rows as you want depending on the number of measures you wish to alternate.

2.  Create table called TopTable as follows :

TopTable =
Union (
TOPN (10, SUMMARIZE('Product',[Item],"Qty",sum('Product'[StockAvailable]),"Value",0),[Qty],DESC ),
TOPN (10, SUMMARIZE('Product',[Item],"Qty",0,"Value",sum('Product'[StockValue])),[Value],DESC )
)

This is creating  a table with columns Item, Sum(StockQty), sum(StockValue)  from the Product table. Replace your fact table names accordingly.

3.  Create measure ShowMeasure as

ShowMeasure = switch (TRUE,
Min ( 'Measure'[MeasureID] ) = 1,
SUM(TopTable[Qty] ),
Min ( 'Measure'[MeasureID] ) = 2,
SUM ( TopTable[Value] ))

4. Create a Filter using the MeasureName at Step 1.

5.  Create a report using Item from TopTable and ShowMeasure and in the filters for the report for ShowMeasure set not equal to zero.

6. This will work.

Output when select Value

If this works for you please accept it as solution and also give KUDOS.
