Try this as dimension

=aggr ( if ( rank(Sum( Amount)) <=2,Company) , Company )

And this as expression

Sum(Amount)

On the Dimension untick Include Null Values

Hi Bill,

Thanks for looking into this. But this expression is not giving me the right result. Maybe I did not share right information.

With the expression, you shared I got the result below.

Result:

But the Output I want to see the TOP 2 sales amount is.


Top 2.PNG

This I have achieved by using Spotfire. But I am facing some challenges while migrating the same to QLIK.

This is for TOP 5:

Use this:

Dimensions:

Year

Company

Expression:

if(

rank(total  aggr(sum(Amount), Year, Company))  <= 2,

sum(Amount),

0

)

One solution i can think now would be to concatenate year and company field in the load script  and use the below condition for all the dimensions and expression

If(Aggr(Rank(Sum(Amount)),CompanyYear)<=2,

xxxx

)

Please find the sample document as attachment.
