How to remove duplicates in FirstSortedValue?

Hi, I need to find which [Sales Person] has performed well in a country? Here is my input table

CountryStateCitySales Personsale
ArgentinaBuenos AiresAyacuchoPamela1200
AustraliaNew South WalesAvalonAnke3600
AustraliaNew South WalesLindfiledJacob3600
AustriaViennaInner CityCorina3600
AustriaViennaMid CityCorine5000

My output in qlikview:

Country Largest Sales By SaleRep FirstSortedValue(SalesPerson,-aggr(sum(Sale),Country,SalesPerson))
5000 Mike

So there is null value in my 2nd row. Hence how do I remove duplicate or how should I bring my top Performer with repeated value?

Any help appreciated?

As far as I know, first sorted value returns a blank/null when more than value has the same weight. So here two names could end up having the same sales and hence it is not able to return a value. You can pick one by changing the formula to FirstSortedValue(distinct SalesPerson,-aggr(sum(Sale),Country,SalesPerson))
