## Top N basis the filter value

I have a dataset which contains the Name and Joining Date and Salary of some employees. (Hypothetical Scenario, real scenario is different)

I have put the Name in the filter.

Now I have column chart which shows the name and salary of the employees.

By default, the chart shows name and salary of the latest top 10 employees basis the recent joining date.

Now the ask here is: when I select any employee name from the filter, the below graph should show the name and salary of top 10 employees who have joined before the selected employee (including the selected one).

So to further explain the scenario, consider there are 26 employees whose name are A, B....Z.
Now suppose they have joined sequentially, like A joined earliest and Z is the latest entry.

By default, on the graph, the salary of Z,Y,X... Q employees.

Now when I select any employee, suppose I selected P from the filter, the graph should show the name and salary of P, O..

Hi,

I tried to create a sample pbix file like below.

please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

I hope the below can provide some ideas on how to create a solution for your datamodel.

``````Salary expected top10 measure: =
VAR _slicerselect =
MAX ( 'Employee slicer'[Employee] )
VAR _slicerselectjoindate =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Employee[Join date] ), Employee[Employee] = _slicerselect )
VAR _top10table =
TOPN (
10,
FILTER ( ALL ( Employee ), Employee[Join date] <= _slicerselectjoindate ),
Employee[Join date], DESC
)
RETURN
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Employee[Salary] ), KEEPFILTERS ( _top10table ) )
``````

Hi, one more questions, what if the values are repeated, instead of joining date, you can take them as start of month date and value is repeating no fix number of times, then how can the sum of salary show as per the filter criteria?

Hi,

Could you please provide a sample pbix file's link together with how expected outcome looks like?
