## TopN and "Other" filtered by month

Hi all,

I need to show the top five and the balance group to others in my report. I have used the following measure:

It worked perfectly fine until I filtered it by month. When I filtered it by month, the row for "others" disappeared, and the grand total for the month was also incorrect. Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Hi @joeywong ,

According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1) We can create measures.

``````Measure =

var _top5 = TOPN(5,VALUES('Table'[Customer No]), CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount])))

var _t2 = SELECTCOLUMNS(_top5,"No" , [Customer No])

var _cur_no= MAX('Unrelated ID'[Customer No])

var _others = EXCEPT(VALUES('Table'[Customer No]),_t2)

return

IF(_cur_no="other",CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Customer No] in _others)),IF(MAX('Unrelated ID'[Customer No]) in _t2 , CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]), FILTER('Table','Table'[Customer No]=_cur_no))  ,BLANK()))``````
``````Measure 2 =

var _total=

SUMX( CROSSJOIN(VALUES('Table'[MM YY]),VALUES('Unrelated ID'[Customer No])),[Measure])

return

_total``````

(2) Then the result is as follows.

Hi AIB,

I am quite new to power bi. I am not quite sure this is the correct way to share the PBIX file. If you can't open the file, please let me know.

I have tried writing these two measures (Top NR and Top NR2). Obviously, these two measures don't work.

I do not see the measure working without the filters in the pbix you shared. Not sure I understand what you need. Can you show an example with the result based on sample data?

Below is an example of the result based on sample data.

Thank you once again in advance.

The SQL BI guys did a video on top n and others filtered by date.
