Using Rank in a table

Hi,

I'm trying to get to grips with the RANK function but I seem to be having a bit of trouble getting it to work.  I have a table that stores opportunities for both contacts and companies and I would like to get the top ten ranked opportunites for companies only.  To complicate matters slightly, the value column may hold NULL, 0.00 or a positive value (such as 124.16)

 

So the table would look a little like this:

 

accountid   contactid   value

1                 Null           12

2                 Null           0.00

Null            1                3

3                 Null           Null

4                 Null           45

Null            2                23

5                 Null           2.3

 

The output that I would like to achieve is:

 

accountid   value   rank

4                 45       1

1                 12       2

5                 2.3      3

etc.

 

Any help would be greatly apreciated!

hi, please try this: (Is a @Sean version with little changes)

 

Ranking =
IF (
    FIRSTNONBLANK ( Table1[AccountId], Table1[AccountId] ) <> BLANK (),
    RANKX (
        FILTER ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[AccountId] <> BLANK () ),
        CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table1[Value] ) )
    )
)

How about this...

Rank Measure =
IF (
    HASONEVALUE ( 'Table'[accountid] ),
    IF (
        ISBLANK ( MIN ( 'Table'[accountid] ) ),
        BLANK (),
        RANKX (
            FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[accountid] <> BLANK () ),
            CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[value] ) )
        )
    )
)

Here's the result...

Good Luck! Smiley Happy

 

EDIT: @Vvelarde's IF (... below takes care of the text format @eyeball

(the Rank itself remains the same just the condition is changed)

Hi Sean,

Many Thanks for this, it looks good!  The only problem I've got now is that the Id is actually a guid (sorry, should have mentioned that) so the min function is seeing it as a string...
