Re: Top 3 sales in Line chart

Hi I think u need to create an expression in such a way that nothing is selected  change ur expression to select 3 with rank funciton.

for example if u have  Year, Quarter, Month  Date.

Expression 1: select the top 3 values when year, quarter , date and month writing IF conditions. with rank<=3 expression

Second. if they select anything from calendar try to  display all the values with regualt expression.

Re: Top 3 sales in Line chart

If you want to show TOP 3   Customers for each Quarter... use below


IF(Aggr(Rank(SUM(Sales),4),Customer, Quarter)<=3, Quarter)

IF(Aggr(Rank(SUM(Sales),4),Customer, Quarter)<=3, Customer)

Select Suppress When Value is NULL
