Bottom Count

Returns a list of bottom member elements from derived from the given list. The logic for deriving the list will use the optional numeric data point (which can be a fixed value or a parameter) if supplied. Otherwise, it uses the default selections for the model or the context in which the function was used.

Syntax & Usage

Bottom([LIST], counter, optional numeric data-point)
  • Create a list from which you want to derive the bottom count list.
  • Add the Bottom Count block to the list, and set the counter from the Insert Arguments window under "Number of Items". This can be a static number or a numeric parameter.
  • Select "Exclude from Result Set" if you want to remove the bottom count from the list (as opposed to creating a list of bottom count elements).


This expression returns a list of the bottom 50 Products by Net Profit; the given list is the Products hierarchy, and the Bottom Count block is assigned a set value of 50, and Net Profit as the data point:

{Bottom({AllMembers([products].[Product])},50,([measures].[data net profit]))}
