Top 5 and Bottom 5 Product within categories

Hi folks,

I want to calculate Top 5 and Bottom 5 products within each category.
For Top 5 Products within each category I have used this formula:

Top 5 Products within each category =
VAR RankingContext = VALUES(‘Dim Products’[Products])
return
CALCULATE([Sum of sales],TOPN(5,ALL(‘Dim Products’[Products]),[Sum of sales]),RankingContext)

I am using Category and Product(Drill down) in rows section of Matrix and the Measure " Top 5 Products within each category" in the values section.
Its working well for Top 5 but I need help in calculating the bottom 5 products within each category.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

Not that I am an expert like @MudassirAli or @AntrikshSharma or @EnterpriseDNA,

but if I may be humble and say this that try

multiplication of multiple ranking functions
such as

RANKX(ALL(your data), [Explicit measure], , ASC) *
RANKX(ALL(your data), [Explicit measure], , DESC)

Thanks

Just replacee DESC with ASC for Bottom products.

Top 5 Products within each category =
CALCULATE (
    [Sum of sales],
    KEEPFILTERS (
        TOPN ( 5, ALL ( 'Dim Products'[Products] ), [Sum of sales], DESC )
    )
)

@AnshP,

Never be hesitant to offer an alternative solution on this forum. The best threads offer multiple solutions to the same problem.

I’m not sure why @ajinkyakadam0009 posted the same question in two separate threads, but in the other thread I offered probably an unnecessarily complex solution. However, I tried your measure within the solution file I provided, and I’m not seeing how it solves the problem. If you could please elaborate, that would be great.

Thanks!
