Get top one category using DAX

I want to get the top category in this column using dax measure. That is, the category which is most repeated. Here it is AAA.

 

 

Category
AAA
AAA
BBB
BBB
AAA
BBB
AAA
CCC

 

How can I do that?

Hi, @mah65 

Please check the below picture and the sample pbix file's link down below, for creating measures.

Repeated Count =
COUNTROWS('Table')

 

 

Most Repeated Category =
MAXX (
TOPN ( 1, ALL ( 'Table'[Category] ), [Repeated Count], DESC ),
'Table'[Category]
)

How to show all if there are multiple categories with highest count?

 

For example, if AAA and BBB are both repeated 4 times (highest count), how to show them all as a concatenated text:    "AAA, BBB" ? 

 

Thanks.
