Importance of Reset Dimension Parameter in Rank Funtion.

I would like to tell the users the importance of Reset Dimension Parameter in Rank Function.


Recently, I was asked to create a simple rank report that shows the Rank in ascending order.


The rank should be based on the sales value & partners, but specific to the country. for e.g., if there are 10 partners in a country there sales should be ranked independently from 1-10. Other partners in a different country should be given separate ranks.


For this scenario, The Rank function has a reset dimension parameter, that helps us to get to this very easily.

It has below syntax,

=Rank([Measure];Top/Bottom;[Dimension])

example:

=Rank([Total_Sales];Top;([Country Name]))

Top – refers that the rank will applied in ascending order.

[Country Name] – this is reset dimension.

Hope this example helps to understand the importance of Reset Dimension Parameter in Rank Function.

Kindly share your feedback on this.
