## Table "Top N" limitation order with multiple criteria?

I'm using the "Top/Bottom N" limitation feature on a table as a ranking based on a measure.

My issue is that this specific measure causes a lot of ties, and I want to use a second measure as a tiebreaker for this ranking - is this possible?

Hi devarasu07‌,

I ended up using the solution in this thread, adding a very tiny fraction of my second measure to the original one. Ranking in case of tie breaker with respect to other metrics

Hi,

yes, can you share mock data and expected output in excel format.

Thanks,

Hi Dev,

Attached the sample data and desired table.

I noticed that Qlik sorts by the second measure automatically if you add it to the table, but I'm not 100% sure.

Hi,

try below method,

1) try to create calculated measure and suppress null value for this Cal.dimension

=IF(Aggr(Rank(SUM(Rating),4),NroProposta)<=5,NroProposta)

2)  using set analysis

SUM({<NroProposta = {"=Rank(SUM(Rating),4)<=5"}>}[Vl Operacao])

3) using set analysis with sort

aggr( SUM({<NroProposta = {"=Rank(SUM(Rating),4)<=5"}>}[Vl Operacao])

, (NroProposta, (=Sum({<NroProposta>}[Vl Operacao]), DESC)))

Hi,

another method, using back end script

```Fact:

Hi Deva,

I didn't mention that "Rating" is already a set analysis expression - I tried substituting SUM(Rating) with my measure, but I couldn't figure out the syntax for methods 2 and 3.

Here is the expression for Rating:

Sum({\$<IndAprovacao={'S'}>} PdDesembolso * VlOperacao)

/

Sum({\$<IndAprovacao={'S'}>} VlOperacao)

And here are the results from the first method - the highlighted values should still take priority in the top 5.

Thanks,
