How to get Top 10 Customers based on Net Sales using variable?

Hi Experts,

We are working on Webi report based on Bex query.

Right now we have more than 2.5k customers in the database. When I take customer dimension in input control, it takes a lot of time to load input controls. That is why I want to show only top 10 customers in the input control.

I want to create Dimension variable which will give me list of top 10 customers based on Net Sales.

I tried using the Rank function but when I drag that variable to report its showing #CONTEXT and #MULTIVALUE error.

How to create this variable?

Thanks

    Hi,

    • sort your table with the measure descending
    • add variable rowcount

      =RunningCount(1)
    • filter table on rowcount less than or equal 10
