## Top N as a dynamic filter

Hello all,

I want to create a slicer for top N products by sales. I need a filter which has values:

1) top1-10

2) top 10-20

3) top 20-30

Whenever the user clicks on any of the three the products get filtered by sales values and are displayed.

Can this be done? If not, anything similar to this is also most welcome.

## Re: Top N as a dynamic filter

Hi @payal4,

1. Create a table like below. Do not establish relationship with other tables.

Rule                                                                                                                                 ID

 top 1 - 10 1 top 10 - 20 2 top 20 - 30 3

2. Create a measure like below.

```rankColorName =
VAR rankShouldBe =
RANKX (
ALL ( DimProduct[ProductName] ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( FactSales[SalesQuantity] ) )
)
RETURN
IF (
HASONEFILTER ( ruleTable[Rule] ),
IF (
MIN ( ruleTable[ID] ) = 1
&& rankShouldBe <= 10,
rankShouldBe,
IF (
MIN ( ruleTable[ID] ) = 2
&& rankShouldBe > 10
&& rankShouldBe <= 20,
rankShouldBe,
IF (
MIN ( ruleTable[ID] ) = 3
&& rankShouldBe > 20
&& rankShouldBe <= 30,
rankShouldBe,
BLANK ()
)
)
),
rankShouldBe
)
```

3. Create a table visual and a slicer like below.

## Re: Top N as a dynamic filter

You can use RANKX and bookmarks to achieve this.
Create the visual, then in the visual level filter do the basic filtering to select only the ranks 1-10 (I am assuming you will give 1st rank to the highest sales), then bookmark it. Do the same for TOP N = 11-20 and 21-30.

After creating the three bookmarks add them to buttons. This is not filter but it will do the the job.

## Re: Top N as a dynamic filter

I'am facing an issue

The moment I bring in a new column in the table, the filter does not fuction and it shows all products.

What could be the reason?

## Re: Top N as a dynamic filter

Hi @payal4,

Where is the column from? Maybe you can make some changes like below.

```rankColorName =
VAR rankShouldBe =
RANKX (
ALL ( DimProduct[ProductName] ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( FactSales[SalesQuantity] ), ALLEXCEPT(DimProduct, DimProduct[Product Name] ) )
)
RETURN
IF (
HASONEFILTER ( ruleTable[Rule] ),
IF (
MIN ( ruleTable[ID] ) = 1
&& rankShouldBe <= 10,
rankShouldBe,
IF (
MIN ( ruleTable[ID] ) = 2
&& rankShouldBe > 10
&& rankShouldBe <= 20,
rankShouldBe,
IF (
MIN ( ruleTable[ID] ) = 3
&& rankShouldBe > 20
&& rankShouldBe <= 30,
rankShouldBe,
BLANK ()
)
)
),
rankShouldBe
)```

## Re: Top N as a dynamic filter

The ALLExcept function did not work for me.

The columns: Product name and Sales quantity are coming from the same table. And the column that I'am trying to get in the table is from another table. But the problem seems to occur even if I bring the any other column from the same table.

What could be the possible reason, any idea?

Hi @payal4,

Can you share your file and the result you want? Please mask the private parts first. A dummy one will be great.

## Re: Top N as a dynamic filter

I tried the method where we create a "what if" parameter for top N filter. I'am able to solve the problem partially. I will get back to you if I need help. Thanks for all the help.
