Top 5 and Bottom 5 Product within each 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 there!

Did you know you can also filter on Top 5/Bottom 5 in the filter pane:

Kind regards,

Yes I know this but what I want is Bottom 5 Products within each category.It is not possible with this.

Hi @ajinkyakadam0009,

See if this will helps you solve it.

Link to knowledge base on TOPN.
You can set the order to be applied. 0/FALSE/DESC – descending; 1/TRUE/ASC – ascending.

If this doesn’t help resolve the issue then like @LucaB72 already suggested provide a mock up PBIX file so members can better assist you.

@ajinkyakadam0009,

Give this a go:

Top 5 by Category =

VAR SalesThisProduct = [Total Sales]
VAR RankingTopDown =
    CALCULATE (
        COUNTROWS (
            FILTER (
                ALLSELECTED ( Products[Product Name] ),
                [Total Sales] >= SalesThisProduct
            )
        ),
        ALLEXCEPT ( Products, Products[Product Category] )
    )
VAR Top5 =
    IF ( RankingTopDown <= 5, RankingTopDown, BLANK () )
RETURN
    Top5

Bottom 5 is a little more complicated:

Bottom 5 by Category =

VAR SalesThisProduct = [Total Sales]
VAR AllRows =
    CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ( Products ), ALL ( Products ) )
VAR RankingBottomUp =
    CALCULATE (
        COUNTROWS (
            FILTER (
                ALLSELECTED ( Products[Product Name] ),
                [Total Sales] <= SalesThisProduct
            )
        ),
        ALLEXCEPT ( Products, Products[Product Category] )
    )
VAR MinRankByCategory =
    CALCULATE (
        MINX ( Products, [Rank by Category] ),
        ALLEXCEPT ( Products, Products[Product Category] )
    )
VAR AdjRank = RankingBottomUp - MinRankByCategory + 1
VAR Bottom5 =
    IF ( AdjRank <= 5, AdjRank, BLANK () )
RETURN
    Bottom5

Here it is all put together:

I hope this is helpful. Full solution file attached.
