Thank you!

    TOPN(
      502,
      __SomeTable,
      [Column1],
      0,
      [Column2],
      0,
      'Product'[Column3],
      1,
      'Location'[Column4],
      1,

    )

Hi @TechoGirl0 ,

 

If you look at the syntax of TopN ,

- 502 is the number of rows to return 

- 1 or 0 is the order to be applied. 0/FALSE/DESC – descending; 1/TRUE/ASC – ascending.

Syntax = 
TOPN(<n_value>, <table>, <orderBy_expression>, [<order>[, <orderBy_expression>, [<order>]]…]) 

 

Thanks,

Samarth
