## Sorting Strait table with 2 dimantions and 3 measures

Hello Experts,

My Problem is this:

I have a strait table with one dimension, let's say customer and three measures: sales, sales percentage and cumulative percentage.

No problem here.

Now, I need to sort them by sales(Decending). Again, No problem here Using an expression in the dimension.

But, when I add a second Dimensions - Let's say sales manager, I cant sort them again.

Any Ideas?

Regards,

Motty.

Your requirement is not clear. Can you share sample application or data?

cumulative percentage is the problem. I had issues with trying to do something like this.. you can only sort a table by a dimension when you start using above() and similar functions that are using relative figures, the sorting by a measure happens after the relative stuff. I think I got a little closer with a pivot table, Henric has a blog post about it.

Hi Ron.

I'm not sure why yet but it seems that changing the Cumulative Measure solved the Problem:

rangesum(above(  total Sales ,0, count(total Customer)))

Thx.

PS - One Exclusion: If you have Negative numbers the Sales sorting dosnt work (The cumulitve does)
