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,

 

Thank you for your help in advance.

 

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.

 

Really appreciate your help. Thanks!

@joeywong 

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?
