How can I create a simple index column with dax.

I want to create a simple index column starting with 1 next to the total column. 

I can't do it with query editor because it is a calculated table.

Re: How can I create a simple index column with dax.

I created a calculation called Sequential once, but this is going to depend on what is in your table, can you share that or an example?

It is very simple. I have a column TOTAL sorted descending. Next to it I need an index starting with 1.

 

The table is created with DAX so I can't do it with query editor.

Re: How can I create a simple index column with dax.

To my understanding it is a Rank. I want a simple index 1 up to the last row.

 

I'd like to have this:

Apart from having an index part of the model or using RANK function (aligning it with the fact your net total is sorted) I am drawing a blank. Greg Deckler may have other suggestions.  There is an idea that may be of benefit to you that you may want to upvote

Oh, well that's super easy, you just need to add a column like this:

 

Index = RANKX(ALL('Table20'),[NetTotal])
