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.
Go to Solution.
Rank Top Senders =
FILTER ( ALL ( UserMessages ); UserMessages[Direction] = "Outbound" );
SUM ( UserMessages[Messages] );
ALLEXCEPT ( UserMessages; UserMessages[User] )
replace ; with ,

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.
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:
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
and use it in the visual level filter to exclude the 0.
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])
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.
You are welcome.
