RANKX Calculated Measure

Hi,

 

I'm hoping someone can help!

 

I have a table 'Performance' which has the below columns:

 

Contract (number)

SalesGroup (string)

Month (date)

Target (number)

Actual (number)

 

There are 25 Contracts and 10 SalesGroups, although this number could change.

 

There is a calculated measure which returns %age actual against target:

 

PerfSum:=IF(OR(SUM([Target])=0,SUM([Actual])=0),0,SUM([Actual])/SUM([Target]))

 

I want to rank each Contract's PerfSum 1-25 (or 1-x is less Contracts are selected) within each SalesGroup, and each SalesGroup 1-10 (1-x if less SalesGroups are selected) against the other SalesGroups within whatever parameters are selected but cannot get RANKX to work for this.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks Smiley Very Happy

RANKX Calculated Measure

Hi,

 

Seriously stuck and in need of help please!

 

I have a table which has the following columns:

 

Contract (number)

SalesGroup (string)

Month (date)

Target (number)

Actual (number)

 

There are 25 contracts and 10 sales groups, but this could change.

 

From this the calculated measure PerfSum is created to give a dynamic % of target:

 

PerfSum:=IF(OR(SUM[Target])=0,SUM([Actual])=0),0,SUM([Actual])/SUM([TARGET])

 

I want to rank PerfSum so that it is ranks each contract 1-25 under each of the 10 SalesGroups and also each SalesGroup 1-10 against the others but can't seem to get RANKX to work.

 

Please Help!

Re: RANKX Calculated Measure

The trick with RANKX is you need to use ALL. 

 

RANKX(ALL(table[salesgroup]),[measure])

 

if you dont use all, it will rank each item against itself and you always get 1.

 

ypu should always add table names in front of column names

Re: RANKX Calculated Measure

Hi @HappyG

 

Will the rankings change if you click various filters?  Or do you want he rankings to be locked down each time you refresh data into the model?

Re: RANKX Calculated Measure

Hi @Phil_Seamark,

Ideally would like to update with selected parameters, but both dynamic and static measures would be useful to get an ‘overall’ and ‘within selexted’ Ranking.

Cheers.
