Filter table using TopN results

Hi All, 


I've been combing the forums for a solution to an issue that i've encountered. I'm trying to populate a table of details using the TopN selector that i've created. I was successful in populating the numerical details using CALCULATE function but i'm not sure which DAX function should I use for text values. 


For filtering of numerical details using TopN selector, i'm using the following measure: 


Rental Savings Top =
[Savings from rental analysis],
TOPN ( 'TopN'[TopN Selection], ALL( 'Masterlist of Leases'[Lease ID]),[Total Savings (USD)])),[Savings from rental analysis])


where [Savings from rental analysis] and [Total Savings (USD)] are calculated measures that contains numerical values and the ranking is based on [Total Savings (USD)].


My aim is to achieve the same for other text details such that the eventual output table will be as follows when a TopN value is selected. When no TopN value is selected, the table will display all rows of details.

Appreciate anyone's help.

Hi Dale @v-jiascu-msft


Please see sample file link below:!AoVBzNM7bDang2Uu_j-CNH2VlhZT


From the file, when you click on the 'TopN' filter the table recalculates subtotal for "Rental Savings". However, i not only want the table to recalculate the subtotals, i also want the TopN to act as a filter to pull out the TopN Lease ID. 


Please let me know if further clarifications of my intent is required. 


Thank you.
