Top N/Top M% BIRT Report Example

A new solution report example has been added to the BIRT website that shows off new filtering functionality. New operators were added to the BIRT filters, which allow you to specify Top N or Top M Percent of data results.

In the example there is a graph that list the Top N customers. This is achieved by setting the filter to use the Top N operator. This is pictured below:

So this graph is taking the Customer Totals and filtering on the Top N, where N is passed in as a parameter to the report.

This report also has a table that list the Top M Percent Customers. This is achieved similarly to the graph and is pictured below.

The final report is shown below. You can download the report from the BIRT Website
