Standard Rank

Version 2



    This is a ranking function with ties. Tied items share the higher rank.





    Example Calculation:



    IF ISNULL(SUM([Sales])) THEN



      IIF(SUM([Sales]) == LOOKUP(SUM([Sales]), -1), PREVIOUS_VALUE(1), INDEX(), 1)





    Inputs and Setup:


    An aggregate measure such as "SUM([Measure])", or a calculation producing one.



    Partitioning and Addressing:


    Direction that SUM([Sales]) is sorted in table, or an "Advanced" field sort on SUM([Sales]).





    After a tie occurs and two rows share the same rank, the next row's rank is unaffected - it is the same rank that it would have had if there had been now tie above it. Values of 5, 3, 3, 2 would produce ranks 1, 2, 2, 4.
