Rankx with filter

I'm working on a RANKX function that involves a filter.  I reviewed this answer, but it did not seem to help my scenario.

 

I have a table called "UserMessages", and a simplified version is shown below:

Basically, I want to rank users as "Top Senders" or "Top Receivers".  When they are a Top Sender, we are ranking based on filtering the Direction column to "Outbound".

 

I created a message called "Rank Top Senders" and it looks like this:

 

Rank Top Senders = RANKX(FILTER(ALL(UserMessages), UserMessages[Direction] = "Outbound"), SUM(UserMessages[Messages]),,DESC,Dense)

 

However, it doesn't appear to rank correctly, because each user is shown with a rank of 1

I've tried several variations, but if someone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

hi @ChrisWilliams

 

Rank Top Senders =
RANKX (
    FILTER ( ALL ( UserMessages ); UserMessages[Direction] = "Outbound" );
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( UserMessages[Messages] );
        ALLEXCEPT ( UserMessages; UserMessages[User] )
    );
    ;
    DESC;
    DENSE
)

Re: Rankx with filter

 Thank you @Vvelarde, that works perfectly.  I'll have to study up on AllExcept... I haven't seen that used in Ranking before but it works well.

Re: Rankx with filter

Hi Chris,

 

I have been searching for help on my challenge and run into this post. I tried to modify your solution to my situation but it is not working somehow. My situation is a little bit different.

 

A simplified table is below. What I want is to rank the Customer Name by Sales BUT EXCLUDING all the Customers with Blank names (let's call them anyomymous customers). 

 

The formula I came up after modelling yours is:

Rank Customer By Sales= RANKX(
filter(all(Table[Customer Name]),NOT(ISBLANK(Table[Customer Name]))),
CALCULATE(sum(Sales), ALLEXCEPT(Customer Name])),,DESC,Dense)
 
But it is still including the Anonymous customers. 

 

Thanks for help.

Hi, a simple way is using a measure to Rank (Basic) and a Visual Level Filter to exclude Blanks.

 

If you have problems with the filter you can create a new measure

 

MeasuretoexcludeAnonymus=Len(Table1[ClientName])

 

and use it in the visual level filter to exclude the 0.

 

Regards

Hi,

 

You may drag Customer Name to the row labels and then in the Visual level filters, uncheck the blank in the Customer Name field.  Write these measures

 

Total Sales = SUM(Data[Sales])

Rank of selected Customers = RANKX(ALLSELECTED(Data[Customer Name]),[Total sales])
 
Hope this helps.

Ashish_Mathur,

 

Thanks for your help. It works on my mock data, but not working on my real data set which has 1.3M lines. Not sure why. I will spend some time tomorrow trying to trouble shoot. I just want to thank you first.
