RANKX Is ranking on my total which is weird

So I has got a Fact table and had a measure to calculate the monthly sales ratio by a category group. 

 

Next I wanted to know the rank from highest to lowest ratio for the particular category but below is the ranking that I got from this DAX formula : 

Rank = RANKX( ALLEXCEPT( FactInvoice , NHFCalendar[Month] ) , CALCULATE( [InvoiceAmt Sum Perc] , ALLEXCEPT( FactInvoice , FactInvoice[Related ItemGroupID], NHFCalendar[Month])), , DESC, Dense)
 
Problem I face is why is the ranking is 1 for the total and not on "External category" instead? And the reason the rank 2 gets duplicated ? I am really lost any guidance would highly appreciated. 😞

Hi @keithchai 

You can create a Measure to get the result you want.

 

Rank =

VAR res =

    RANKX (

        ALLEXCEPT ( FactInvoice, FactInvoice[Month] ),

        CALCULATE (

            [InvoiceAmt Sum Perc],

            ALLEXCEPT ( FactInvoice, FactInvoice[Related ItemGroupID], FactInvoice[Month] )

        ),

        ,

        DESC,

        DENSE

    )

RETURN

    IF ( HASONEFILTER ( FactInvoice[Related ItemGroupID] ), res, BLANK () )

 

The result looks like this:

@keithchai , what is your base data, what was shown in the last table ?

Try like

Rank = RANKX( ALLselected(FactInvoice ) , CALCULATE( [InvoiceAmt Sum Perc] , ALLEXCEPT( FactInvoice , FactInvoice[Related ItemGroupID], NHFCalendar[Month])), , DESC, Dense)

 

Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

Hi @amitchandak ,

I tried changed to ALLSELECTED the result is not desired. 

The rank now is ranking on the entire year, I only wanted to know the rank for the categories within the month. 

ALLSELECTED Result:

My desired output:

My base data is just a simple fact invoice table, with the sales amount for the invoices throughout the year. 

InvoiceAmt Sum Perc is the percentage of invoiceamt sum for the month. Say January is 57% of the total sales and 58% for March total sales etc. If possible I may not want to share the pbix file, my company is a little strict. 😫
