## RankX for multiple columns with percentage and numbers

Dear PBI enthusiasts!

I have a requirement where I need to show the Top N of a column '%Profit' and if there is a tie then I need to use the column 'Total Sales'. I am using RankX for my first column but not getting the second column to be used when there is a tie.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance!

Hi @DivyaReddy ,

try this measure

Rank =

VAR Rank1 =

RANKX(ALL(Facts),

[% Profit]

)

VAR Rank2 =

VAR CurrentProfit = [% Profit]

RETURN

RANKX(

CALCULATETABLE(

FILTER(

Facts,

"@Total Sales",[Total Sales],

"@%Profit",[% Profit]

),

[% Profit] = CurrentProfit

),

ALL('Facts')),

[Total Sales]

)

RETURN

Rank1*Rank2

Hi @DivyaReddy ,

try this calculated column:

RANK =
VAR _Rank =RANKX('Facts14',[%Profit])
RETURN
COUNTX(
FILTER(
'Facts14',
'Facts14'[%Profit] = EARLIER('Facts14'[%Profit]) && 'Facts14'[Total Sales] > EARLIER('Facts14'[Total Sales])
),
[Total Sales]
) + _Rank

This seems to have worked in theory but not sure why I get "Parameter not correct type" for "EARLIER('Facts14'[%Profit])" and EARLIER('Facts14'[Total Sales]) when I substituted my actual column and table names  They They are measures (not columns) in my actual data not sure if that matters?
