Create a table for the Lastest avaliable Non blank value

Hi there, DAX newb here so thanks in advance 🙂

 

I'm working on a Project info table that is built based on a  two tables relation
- a Master table contains the main project info (ID, Description )

- A latest summary table with latest summary submission and corresponding summary by project managers (PMs)

the master table is on the one side , so many project summaries can submitted for the one project vs time.

Constrain: Some project summaries are blank or contain whitespaces as these are error submissions by PMs. These should not be displayed.

 

My hacky solution is below:
1-
_Last_known_summ =
LASTNONBLANK(Project_Summary[Management_Summary],
Fact_Project_Summary[Management_Summary])

2-

and a visual filter for the last top 1 submitted date_time.

The issue that i have is that if two or more projects are selected on the filter ;  only the project with the latest summary will be displayed . If i remove the filter stated in 2 , the table index will explode and all non blank summaries will be displayed.

help 🙂

Re: Create a table for the Lastest avaliable Non blank value

If you will never want to see or analyze blank/bad entries, you should filter them out in your query.  You then can write simpler DAX to get your desired result.  If not needed, please try that and then respond if you need a solution.

 

If this works for you, please mark it as the solution.  Kudos are appreciated too.  Please let me know if not.

Regards,

Pat

Thank you. The current formula already removes the blank summaries. Still stuck I'm afraid. I'm able to display the latest summary for one project but as soon as two or more projects are selected in the visual filter the latest date is selected between both projects and only one is selected.

Hi @giordafrancis.

You did not understand what @mahoneypat said. You must remove the rows with blanks in Power Query, not in DAX.
