Hi  @dommyw277 ,

I created some data:

vyangliumsft_0-1653482796405.png

Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Create measure.

Count =
var _select=SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Month])
return
COUNTX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Month]=_select&&'Table'[Group]=MAX('Table'[Group])),[Group])
rank =
RANKX(ALL('Table'),[Count],,DESC,Dense)
Flag =
IF(
    [rank]<=10,1,0)

2. Place [Flag]in Filters, set is=1, apply filter.

So using the table I have called ReportData , the fields are Category and Month , I have this - can anyone help where im going wrong please?

 

calculate(Sum(ReportData[Category]) ,TOPN(10,all(ReportData[Category]),calculate(Sum(ReportData[Month]) )), values(ReportData[Category]))

Hi,

This measure is correct.  What problem are you facing?

The issue appears to be that im trying to SUM Text fields so maybe thats why the TOP n argument isnt working?

 

calculate(Sum(ReportData[Category]) ,TOPN(10,all(ReportData[Category]),calculate(Sum(ReportData[Month]) )), values(ReportData[Category]))

 

Hi,

Does this work?

=calculate(countrows(ReportData) ,TOPN(10,all(ReportData[Category]),calculate(Sum(ReportData[Month]) )), values(ReportData[Category]))

Hi, so ReportData is replaced by NewCherwell however i get these messages. Maybe because Month is a part of created date time?
