Group by most recent date, then next most recent, etc

Hello! I'm trying to convert a set of disparate dates into numbers (or indicators - text is fine) indicating the most recent in a group, next most recent in a group, etc. For instance:

turn this:

 Store Date A 9/1/2019 A 5/1/2019 A 3/1/2019 A 1/1/2019 B 8/1/2019 B 7/15/2019 B 6/3/2019 B 4/1/2019 C 7/16/2019 C 6/1/2019 C 5/1/2019 C 4/1/2019 D 2/1/2019 D 1/1/2019 D 12/15/2018 D 11/1/2018

into this:

 Store Date A 1 A 2 A 3 A 4 B 1 B 2 B 3 B 4 C 1 C 2 C 3 C 4 D 1 D 2 D 3 D 4

I get the sense that this will be accomplished through the group by function - but I can't figure out how! I'm open to M or Dax solutions! Thanks!

Re: Group by most recent date, then next most recent, etc

You can rank the dates for each store

```Calc Column =
RANKX ( FILTER ( TableName, [Store] = EARLIER ( [Store] ) ), [Date],, DESC )
```
