Maximum Subset

Contents[Hide]

The Maximum Subset function returns a specified number of the largest values in an input data series. For example, the function can be used to return the 3 largest values.

1. Syntax

TOP(d0,s0,Alignment)

2. Input

The Maximum Subset function requires the following input:

  • d0 - Input data values - The set of data values for which the Maximum Subset is calculated.
  • Alignment (Optional) - A hierarchy placeholder to be used as the alignment axis. If an alignment hierarchy is not indicated, the subset is applied to the whole result.

3. Parameters

The Maximum Subset function requires the following parameters.

  • s0 - Maximum Subset Count - The number of values to be returned by the function. Default value is 1.

When you use the TOP function within a metric set, it can only return a single value (s0 must be 1). In order to return the top 3 values, for example, you must use a formula visualization. This applies to the other subset functions as well.

4. Output

The Maximum Subset formula generates the following output:

  • Maximum Subset - The Maximum Subset result set.
