## Calculate Sum Per grouping for Latest date

I have a table that looks loosely like this:

 Project Name SprintName SprintDate Value ProjectA Back-End 22-Oct 6 ProjectA Front-End 21-Oct 5 ProjectA Front-End 20-Oct 2 ProjectA Back-End 21-Oct 1 ProjectB Front-End 22-Oct 5

I want in a metric (to be more specific, it will be defined as a variable amidst a larger equation), a way to sum the Values (column 4) from only the latest (Column 3) of each Sprint Name (Column 2). Within the report that are filtered by Project Names (Column 1).

I've tried filters, and group by's but since the latest date isn't always the same between sprints (one sprint's latest update is on October 22nd, the other is on October 21st), I'm having difficulty coming up with the right dax function.

Anyone have any idea?

I'm replying to myself because I think I solved it doing the following:

In my Table I created a column that checks the latest date:

`MaxDate = CALCULATE(MAX('ProjectTable[SprintDate]),FILTER('ProjectTable, ProjectTable[SprintName]=EARLIER(ProjectTable[SprintName])))`
and then a second column to create a flag
`LatestValue = If(ProjectTable[Metric Date] = ProjectTable[MaxDate], 1, 0)`
Finally the measure itself has the following formula
```    SUMX(
VALUES(ProjectTable[SprintName]),
CALCULATE(
SUM(Project Table[Value]),
FILTER(ProjectTable,ProjectTable[Type] = "TypeA"
&& ProjectTable[LatestValue] = "1")
))```

Sorry, I forgot to Specify something.

There's a 5th column in the table that needs to be included in the filters.

So right now I have the following which doesn't work:

```SUMX(
VALUES(ProjectTable[SprintName]),
CALCULATE(SUM(ProjectTable[Value]), FILTER(ProjectTable[Type] = "typeA" &&
'ProjectTable[SprintDate] = MAX ( ProjectTable[SprintDate])))) ```

And since this will ultimately be just a variable inside a larger metric calculation, I don't want to summarize a new table for it.
