## How to create RankX formula that ignores the empty rows?

Hello everyone,

The ranking based on the formula below starts from 2 or 3, because there are empty rows:

Rank =
VAR rankOrder = RANKX (FILTER ( ALL ('AllRegions'[Modified],'AllRegions'[Title2],'AllRegions'[Index] ),
'AllRegions'[Title2]
=EARLIER('AllRegions'[Title2])),
'AllRegions'[Modified],,ASC)
RETURN IF([PriceOrigin22]<>BLANK(),rankOrder,BLANK())

Do you have any ideas how to amend the formula in order to start from 1 (and still ignoring the empty rows)?

Thanks,
Leo

Hi @Anonymous ,

Please update the formula of your calculated column [Rank] as below and check if it can return the correct result...

``````Rank =
VAR rankOrder =
RANKX (
FILTER (
ALL ( 'AllRegions'[Modified], 'AllRegions'[Title2], 'AllRegions'[Index] ),
'AllRegions'[Title2] = EARLIER ( 'AllRegions'[Title2] )
&& 'AllRegions'[PriceOrigin22] <> BLANK ()
),
'AllRegions'[Modified],
,
ASC
)
RETURN
rankOrder``````

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.

@Anonymous , if this column rank , you do not need all. Try like

Rank =
VAR rankOrder = RANKX (FILTER ( ('AllRegions'[Modified],'AllRegions'[Title2],'AllRegions'[Index] ),
'AllRegions'[Title2]
=EARLIER('AllRegions'[Title2]) && [PriceOrigin22]<>BLANK()),
'AllRegions'[Modified],,ASC)
RETURN IF([PriceOrigin22]<>BLANK(),rankOrder,BLANK())

Thanks @amitchandak ,

I tried it, but I am getting the following error message:

[Modified] column is consisting of row data. All other columns in this formula are calculated.

If I add All to the formula, it works, but the ranking starts at 2:
