# Set analysis question, more elegant solution?

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone has a more elegant solution to the below.

17 set analysis scenarios, to return 'Rank' field numbers, and then finding the minimum 'Rank' field number within the resulting range of fields.

Thanks!

=if(len(If(Only({1<ID = p({<Genre =  (p(Genre)), [Sub Genre] = (p([Sub Genre])),
Literal3 = (p(Literal3)),
ID = e(ID),Author = , Title =, ISBN =>})>}Aggr(Rank(Only({1<ID = p({<Genre =  (p(Genre)), [Sub Genre] = (p([Sub Genre])),
Literal3 = (p(Literal3)),
[Price] = {">=\$(vMinCTPrice)<=\$(vMaxCTPrice)"},
[Pub Date Num] = {">=\$(vMinCTPubDate)<=\$(vMaxCTPubDate)"},
ID = e(ID),Author = , Title = , ISBN = >})>}-ID)), Genre, [Sub Genre], Literal3, ID)) <= \$(vResults),

Just looking at the expression makes it difficult to see what is going on, but one suggestion I can make is to convert Rank1, Rank2, .... Rank17 into a field and its value in another field using The Crosstable Load
