Filter by Top N in Power BI report Builder

I'm trying to build a report using Power BI report builder, but I'm struggling to sort tables and graphs and filter them by Top N.

I have tried doing this using Tablix Properties filters and sorting as shown in the pictures below. 

The output only shows 7 categories.

This works great if your report is already summed up at the detail level.  My report is NOT summed up at the detail level.  So I need to get a Top 10 of the summed qty by the customer.  I see that you cannot filter on a ReportItems! field.

This is what my sub report looks like.  I want to fliter my Top 10 on the Sum(shipped_qty).  How can I do this?


Thank you,




There are a couple ways to do this from filtering the data to filtering the report item. This is a pretty decent article, hope it can help answer your question.
