Hi  @dommyw277 ,

I created some data:

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.

3. Result:

For errors, you can refer to:

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]))

Super User

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?

@dommyw277 , Create a TOPN measure and display is with month and category

calculate(Sum(Table[Value]) ,TOPN(1,all(Table[category]),calculate(Sum(Table[Value]) )), values(Table[category]))

or refer this
