## Most Recent Date & Value

Hi All,

I am trying to get the most recent date and its assoicated active cases value for each LGA Name in a single table NSW.

I have written the DAX and it gets the most recent date but it just assoicates that date with every row. I've tried to filter the table by the measure by there doesn't seem to be a way.

(Power Query)Table NSW sorted by most recent date 19-01-22 and cases <> 0 or null = active cases 2044

DAX:

Recent LGA Cases =
VAR CurrentLGA = SELECTEDVALUE(NSW[LGA Name])

RETURN

MAXX(
FILTER(ALL('NSW'),'NSW'[LGA Name] = CurrentLGA && NSW[active cases] <>0),

NSW[Date])

Result:

Retrives the correct date e.g 19-01-22 but not the active case as well. If try sum it just sums every row.

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

For calculations using most recent date you can use this logic:

var curdate = max('Calendar'[Date])
var lastestdate = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Date]),ALL('Calendar'),'Table'[Date]<=curdate) return

CALCULATE([Measure],'Table'[Date]=latestdate)

I hope this post helps to solve your issue and if it does consider accepting it as a solution and giving the post a thumbs up!

Thanks for the reply, wasn't quite the answer but it put me on the right path. I ended up with;

DAX:

Recent LGA Cases =
VAR CurrentLGA = SELECTEDVALUE(NSW[LGA Name])

VAR MAXXDATE = MAXX(
FILTER(ALL('NSW'),'NSW'[LGA Name] = CurrentLGA && NSW[active cases] <>0),

NSW[Date])

RETURN

CALCULATE(SUM(NSW[Active Cases]), NSW[Date] = MAXXDate)
