How to output a text column based on a ranking measure and aggregate the values?

Hey,

Could someone please help me out with the following problem please?

 

If I have 5 animals for example with different values. I want to be able to rank the top three and then output the top 3 names and aggregte the remaining animals that didn't make it to the top 3. 

 

AnimalValueRank
Horses91
Chickens82
Frogs73
Dogs44
Cats15
   
Desired Output  
AnimalValue 
Horses9 
Chickens8 
Frogs7 
Other5 

 

I ranked using a measure:

RankTop3 =

Var RankAnimal = RANKX(ALLNOBLANKROW('Table'[Animal]),[Value],
,
DESC,
Dense
)
RETURN IF(RankAnimal <=3,[Value],BLANK())

However, this gives me the top 5 values when I put the column Animals and the measure RankTop3 together and not my desired output.

I was thinking I may need to use a calculated column as I need an IF statement that works with text but I don't know how to use it in conjunction with rank which is a measure.
 
Does anyone have any ideas?
 
Thank you in advance,
 
Lauren.

Here is an example using Contoso dataset, but the idea is same. first create a rank column in your table based on the amount or anything.

ProductRank = 
RANKX (
    ALL ( Products[Brand] ),
    CALCULATE ( [Total Sales], ALLEXCEPT ( Products, Products[Brand] ) ),
    ,
    ASC
)

Now we create a new column to group the brands based on the ranking

NewProductCategory = 
VAR ProductRank = Products[ProductRank]
VAR ProductBrand = Products[Brand]
VAR Result =
    IF ( ProductRank IN { 1, 2, 3 }, ProductBrand, "Others" )
RETURN
    Result

Now the final step is the put everything in a visualization

Total Sales = SUMX ( Sales, Sales[Quantity] * Sales[Net Price] )
Rank on Sales =
IF (
    HASONEVALUE ( Products[NewProductCategory] ),
    RANKX ( ALL ( Products[NewProductCategory] ), [Total Sales] )
)

Hi @lauren1192 

 

Try this,

Top 3 and Others = 
IF(
    RANKX( 'Table', 'Table'[Value] ) <= 3,
    'Table'[Animal],
    "Others"
)

the rank formula will need to be adjusted if you have Animals duplicated in your table.

 
Best Regards,
Mariusz
