DAX HELP - Back filtering part table based on percentage of total sales

 
 

I am looking for some help "back filtering" sales. 

The requirement to to retunr the Top X products that contibute to 80% of the total sales value.  I am guessing that I could use a combination of a cumulative total and rankx somehow. 

I have a the following tables in my model, 

FactSales

DimDate

DimProduct

DimCustomer


 

Any help greatfully received

Hi @NanDeb ,

 

Please create following measure:

cumulative_sales(80%) = 
var cumulative_sales = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[VALUE]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[TaxDate] <= SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[TaxDate])))
var total_sales = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[VALUE]),ALL('Table'))
return
IF(cumulative_sales <= total_sales * 0.8, cumulative_sales)

 

I think this is the result you want:

@v-yadongf-msft

 

to start with I would like returned a table of all the products and their cumulative sales.

 

If possible I would then also like to exclude the lower ranking sales after cumulative value of 80% of total sales value is reached

EG, 

 

Total Sale Value = £800,000
80% Sales Value = £640,000

I want to return something like this: 

Product IDRank

Total Sale Value

Cumulative
AAA1£90,000£80,000
BBB2£85,000£175,000
CCC3£80,000£255,000
DDD4£75,000£330,000
EEE5£70,000£400,000
FFF6£65,000£465,000
GGG7£60,000£525,000
HHH8£55,000£580,000
III9£50,000£620,000
JJJ10£45,000NOT INCLUDED If possible

 

Is there anyway of achieving this in DAX

Hi @NanDeb ,

 

Please create following measure:

cumulative_sales(80%) = 
var cumulative_sales = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[VALUE]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[TaxDate] <= SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[TaxDate])))
var total_sales = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[VALUE]),ALL('Table'))
return
IF(cumulative_sales <= total_sales * 0.8, cumulative_sales)
