How to Create Dynamic Top 10 Columns in Matrix

Hello,

Essentially, my data has two country columns: producing country and policy country. Every cell in the data has a non-blank pair of producing country and policy country. In addition, every cell has a whole number value for Rework (0, 1, ...).

I am attempting to make a dynamic matrix displaying the top 10 policy countries by avg rework for the most recent quarter in the rows, and the corresponding top 10 producing countries by avg rework in the most recent quarter for those top 10 policy countries in the columns. The only partial solution I have found so far is to create a new calculated column that statically assigns each producing country a rank:

The top 10 policy countries by avg rework are correct and sorted correctly, and the corresponding top 10 producing countries by avg rework for those top 10 selected policy countries are correct. However, the producing country sort is not correct. It seems to be using the static, pre-defined calculated column rank, as displayed by the numbers on top. Is there a way to have the sorting change dynamically to keep the high to low producing countries in order from left to right?

you need to add the rank as measure in the matrix, and you can then sort base on it .

you can do it like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bp_e-ik7aA

i think it could be done for you, since you have limited nb of columns ( = 10 ) , so you can hide them using this technique .
