Top n function based on increase/decrease in data over time

I want to create a measure that allows me to find the top 5 and bottom 5 for departments over a course of 2 months.

 

I have already created a measure that finds the percent difference between payments from one month to the next, now I would like to be able to compare and visualize that difference.

 

I want to find the top 5 deparmets with the greatest increase in payments and the bottom 5 departments with the greatest decrease in payments.

 

I'm fairly new to Power BI so I am not sure how to go about doing this. Here is a sample of my data:

 

DATE

DEPARTMENT

PAYMENTS

Increase/Decrease

February

000

12

 

March

000

2

-83%

February

001

312

 

March

001

463

48%

February

002

127

 

March

002

17

-87%

 

I really appreciate the help and I thank you all in advance!

@Anonymous ,

 

Please convert Increase/Decrease to calculate column, then create two tables by clicking Modeling-> New Table using DAX below:

Top 5 Increase = TOPN(5, FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Increase/Decrease] > 0), 'Table'[Increase/Decrease], DESC)

Bottom 5 Decrease = TOPN(5, FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Increase/Decrease] < 0), 'Table'[Increase/Decrease], ASC)
