  3. Filter by your aggregate column.
  4. In the Filter panel, use the drop down menu to change the filter type to Rank & Limit.
  5. You can easily choose how many results to choose, and if you want to see the most or least common. To see the lowest numbers, sort ascending. To see the highest numbers, uncheck the Ascending option.
