TopN and others issues



I wanted to ask for some help with creating topn and others. I have been watching and trying to implement via the following tutorial ( a topn and others solution to my sales data.


  • I was able to create the pseudo table with an "others" category per the video's guidance
  • I have sales as a Numeric Field called "Total" in my imported data. Given when creating a new measure I cannot use Total in the next steps, I created a new measure where: Total_Sales = SUM (Table1[Total])
  • I then created another measure per the video that would do the topn filtering but the function does not end up working in filtering the sum of the top 3 names, instead it returns a total sum of the entire dataset  ....
    TOP N Sum Sales =
    Is there something that I missed or did I make a mistake?

    Thank you for any suggestions!

Should Table1, that's where you applied your SUM
