## How to use ranks with multiple alphanumeric fields (variables)

Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to use rankx function in DAX to order a table with alphanumeric fields (see the example below), by ordering first by amount (descending), by project then by phase.

Project                 phase   amount

 1-BC-155-A01 2 100 1-BC-155-107 7 5000 1-BC-154-107 8 2500 1-BC-153-107 10 200 1-BC-149-A01 11 3000 1-BC-149-107 1 102 1-BC-080-601 20 105 1-BC-080-225 22 10000

Hello,

I have already test your solution and what it does, the table is sorted first by amount, then by project and finally by phase.  At the end, the table is sorted by phase.

What I would like it is to be able to sort the following table:

 expenses project phase 5000 a 2 5000 a 1 5001 b 2 5001 b 1

like in Excel, using a custom sorter with three level,

1 for the Amount

2 for the Project

3 for the Phase

to obtain the following table:

 expenses project phase 5001 b 1 5001 b 2 5000 a 1 5000 a 2

I have tried the Table Sorter from the MarketPlace. But it works only with numerical data not the Alphanumeric one.

I thought that we could use the rankx function but again it seems only for numerical data.

So my Question is :

Is there a way to sort a table in Power BI using some sort of Custom Filter (2,3,4 levels) as in Excel.

Regards,
