## Ranking a measure without filters and displaying it with filters.

I'm trying to display the Top and Bottom 5 Advisors by Cumulative Flows. There is an AllClients fact table with [Net Flows] in it and all the relevant lookup tables in star schema including AdvisorFirmInfo2 and FundInfo2.

My Ranking formulas are below.

```Rank (Asc) of Cumul Flows =
IF (
RANKX (
CALCULATE ( SUMX ( AllClients, [Cumulative Flows])),
,
ASC,
DENSE
)
)
Top and Bottom 10 by Cumul Flows = if(OR([Rank (Asc) of Cumul Flows] <='TopN'[TopN Value],[Rank (Desc) of Cumul Flows]<='TopN'[TopN Value]),1,0)```

And I get part of the desired result below.

Which let's me make this chart.

But all the Advisors are invested via one of several funds and I want to add the Fund to the legend of the chart. When I do, I get the following chart which has far more advisors than I want.

Converting it back to a table to analyse it I get this.

How can I change my Ranking formulae to let me rank on the Cumulative Flows across all funds per Advisor and then display only the Top and Bottom N Advisors while showing the split by Fund?

My Cumulative Flows measure is as follows:

```Cumulative Flows =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( AllClients[Net Flows] )
)```

Could you try the formula below to see if it works?

```Rank (Asc) of Cumul Flows =
IF (
RANKX (
CALCULATE (
SUMX ( AllClients, AllClients[Net Flows] ),
),
,
ASC,
DENSE
)
)
```

That didn't work. It gives me a similar result - far more advisors than there should be.

Could you post your table structures(including the relationships) with some sample/mock data which can help us reproduce this issue, so that we can do some tests to better assist on it? It's even better to share a sample pbix file(with just some mock data) which can reproduce the issue. You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading

Please check out the Excel here and the pbix here. The relationships look like this.

Based on my test, the formulas below should work in your scenario.

```Rank (Asc) of Cumul Flows =
IF (
RANKX (
,
ASC,
DENSE
)
)```
```Rank (Desc) of Cumul Flows =
IF (
RANKX (
,
DESC,
DENSE
)
)
```

Here is the modified pbix file for your reference.

Fantastic! I understand why you can change SUMX to SUM. But can you explain why passing the ALL(Funds) function helps?

To simplify it, I can also take out the "ALLEXCEPT" function like this. Or will there be unintended consequences like this?

```Rank (Desc) of Cumul Flows =
IF (
RANKX (
CALCULATE (SUM (AllClients[Net Flows]),
ALL(FundInfo[Fund])
),
,
DESC,
DENSE
)
)```
