RANKX - Ranking Total Sales

Hi All,

 

I have been reading a bit on DAX and trying to work out how the RANKX formula works.

 

I have the below list of data and trying to rank it by sales. My formula is Sales Rank = RANKX(ALL(Sales),[Total Sales])

The below is the result I get (have used Excel in this example)

I have tried to use Sales Rank = RANKX(ALL(Sales[Client]),[Total Sales]) which works properly but it doesn't work when I change the pivottable rows to Sector. Is there a reason why I can't use ALL on the entire table?

In case you take all


Rank = RANKX(all(Sheet1[Client]),CALCULATE(SUM(Sheet1[Sales])),,DESC,Dense)

 

Rank will change with another field you add and give a ranking of the client inside that group.

What is expected outcome

Total Sales = Sum(SalesTable[Sales])

Hi

 

I am just trying to understand why Sales Rank = RANKX(ALL(Sales),[Total Sales]) doesn't work

Can I not just take the entire sales table?

 

If I wanted to group by sector, I need to write another DAX formula like: Sales Rank = RANKX(ALL(Sales[Sector]),[Total Sales])
