## 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?

 Client Sector Sales A F&B 125 B Tech 456 A F&B 98 B Tech 546 C Tech 564 C Tech 132 D Auto 189 E Financial 456 E Financial 542 E Financial 652 E Financial 745 F Energy 897 F Energy 564 F Energy 132 G F&B 52 G F&B 54 G F&B 87 G F&B 98 G F&B 132

Thanks All!

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

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])

Thanks for your help. If I want to rank total sales by sector, I need to write another DAX formula as below?
