Serial Number using database table



I am having one table containg 1000 records. Now when i displaying the data in table visual i need a serial number column. I wrote a dax query  but if i select all the data it gives proper serial no,but  when i display some data then it gives some random number may the row/record number. Please suugest any dax query which solve the problem.





Can you please post a sample of what your data looks like (including your DAX measure)

Pl find the below screen. When i selecting all the projctid it gives the sr no start from 2 and then so on, but when i select the random id from slicer , it also shows the random sr no.

Hi @prashant_ora,


Did you use the RANK function to create the serial number? If so, try to encase the first parameter in ALLSELECTED. Can you share the formula?

Yes the same thing i used and its working fine when i select column from one dim. When in table visual if i select columns from other dimension also then it does not work. It hangs and finally stopped.

Hi @prashant_ora


Give a try to this :


1. Add index column in Query Editor

2. Create a Measure in DAX ith this formula:

DAXrowcount1 = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Index]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Table1),Table1[Index]<= MAX(Table1[Index])))


Let me know if you see any issues with this.
