## Show Top N and sum up the Others as a value

I created a Rank column and a custom measure. I've filtered on Rank to show less than 11, so basically show me the top 10.

The custom measure is basically saying to show me when rank <= 5, then show Amount else Others.

Instead of "Others", is there a way to sum up the Amount value and end up only showing 6 rows. First 5 rows shows the top 5 countries, and then the 6th row sums up the countries that are ranked from 6 to 10.

Here is the solution:

1. Goto modelling tab and click new table and add following dax :

`Country with other = UNION(Values('Dim - Country'[Country Name]), ROW("Country Name", "Others"))`

it will create a new table with all the countries and addition country "Others"

2. Set relationship with this new country with your original table (it will be 1 to many)

3. change your country rank measure like this

`Ctry Rank = RANKX(ALL('Country with others'[Country Name]), 'Dim - Country'[Total])`

4. Add new measure "Total with other" -> This is final measure we need

```Total with other =
if([Ctry Rank] <= 10, 'Dim - Country'[Total],
if(HASONEVALUE('Country with others'[Country Name]),
if(values('Country with others'[Country Name]) = "Others",
sumx(filter(all('Country with others'[Country Name]), [Ctry Rank ] > 10),  'Dim - Country'[Total])
)
)
)```

5. Add new table visual , drop country name from "Country with other table" and Total with other measure

I expect that you will top 10 countries with their value and rest should be all summed up with "Others"

PS - There could be typo in DAX expression, let me know if it doesn't work

HI @pshah

Is your City Rank a calculated measure or a calculated column?  Can you please share the code you used for this.

For the 6th row, what you like to see in the 2nd and 3rd columns?

Calculated measure -> Ctry Rank = RANKX(ALL('Dim - Country'[Country Name]), 'Dim - Country'[Total])

For the 6th row, I'd like to see "Others" in the 2nd and 3rd column, if that makes sense.

Regular Visitor

For the 4th column, I'd like to show the remaining amount on the 6th row.

Based on the screen shot, the math will come out to a little under 50m. So I'd like to show that amount / value in the 4th column and 6th row.

Hallo @parry2k ,

your solution almost worked for me as well.

But I still don´t get the solution I need.

I get my Top 10 Products and the Rest (Sonstige), but sum is just the sum of Top 10 Products. But it should be round about 43 Millions.

I just changed the first measure, instead of Values I used Distinct. With Values I get circular dependencies.

All other measures like your measures.

I am thankfull for every help!
