## Sort chart by two expressions

I have a simple bar chart with one dimension: Supplier.

And one dimension: Percentage of Good Deliveries.

At the moment I am sorting by expression: the percentage of good deliveries for the supplier (set analysis). However if a supplier has delivered 1 order, and another supplier has delivered 500; then I want the supplier with 500 to come above the supplier with 1 order.

Is there a way to first sort by percentage of good deliveries, (and if the percentage is the same as another value in the chart e.g. two suppliers are 100%) then sort by count (number of orders)?

So: Sort by percentage of good deliveries

If the percentage is the same as another supplier

then sort the matching values by order quantity

Thanks

OK, got it.

Try using the function Rank() in the sorting expression, something like:

=SUM(Percentaje)*10000 - Rank(Deliveries)

Hello.

Try using a compound formula like:

sum(Percentaje) * 10000 + sum(Deliveries)

10000 is an arbitrary value larger than the maximum possible value for "Deliveries".

See QVW attached.

Thanks for the reply Ernesto, we had considered something like this however when sorting and the count of orders becomes ~10000 then the 30% jumps above the 50% values.

In the example 'D' should come below 'A' but above 'B'.

As 'D' and 'B' are both 30% but 'D' has more orders.

Thanks Ernesto, that seems to work.

So I changed your sort expression from:=SUM(Percentaje)*10000 - Rank(Deliveries)

Update: Have attached working version with Set Analysis also.

Slight bug in that if the percentages are very similar and one vendor has a lot more orders then it will rank higher, not a bad thing but depends on context:

SupplierTotal OrdersOTIF %
ABC50020
XYZ4021
