RFM Score and filtering different categories

I want to creat an RFM of all my clients but at the same time recalculate the score when filtering the sales categories.


I have a data based that has;

  • Client_ID
  • Client_Name
  • Category_ID
  • Material
  • Transaction_date
  • Amount

For the the RFM values I'm using the these measures;

Recency = DATEDIFF(MAX(Sales [Transaction_date]), TODAY(), DAY)
Frecuency = DISTINCTCOUNT(Sales [Transaction_date])
Monetary = SUM(Sales[Amount])

I created another table summarizing my client ID and the RFM value
    Sales, Sales[Client_ID],
    "R Value", [Recency],
    "F Value", [Frecuency],
    "M Value", [Monetary])
Since I want to rank them according to their percentile, I created a calculated column for the rank
Nivel Rt = SWITCH (
  TRUE (),
   [R value] <= PERCENTILE.INC ( RFM[R Value], 0.20 ), "5",    
   [R value] <= PERCENTILE.INC ( RFM[R Value], 0.40 ), "4",
   [R Value] <= PERCENTILE.INC ( RFM[R Value], 0.60 ), "3",
   [R value] <= PERCENTILE.INC ( RFM[R Value], 0.80 ), "2",
Doing all these I can get an RFM score for all my clients. However, if I try to filter my categories of sales the score doesn't change or recalculates itself. what it does. it's filter the amount of clients of that category and it gives them the same score. Any help appreciated.
