show last value on or before selected date

Hi 

I have a table that contains daily balances for several accounts by date.  It doesn't have an entry for every date.

 

The user selects a date they are interested in, I would like to display each account by value on a Clutered bar chart.

 

I am trying to create a measure that will calculate a value.  If the an entry doesn't exist for the selected date I would like the value of last entry before the selected date.

 

This is what I have so far but is giving me the error max has been used in a true/false expression that is used as a table filter

 

 

LastValueAmmount =
    CALCULATE(
        [Total Value],
    FILTER(
        ALL('Statement Date'[Date]),
            LASTNONBLANK('Statement Date'[Date],[Total Value])
        )
        , 'Statement Date'[Date] <= MAX ( 'Statement Date'[Date] )
)

 

[Total Value] is a measure I have created and just totals the closing balance  field.

 

 

here is my model

Here is one approach to do it.  I made a mock table called Table that doesn't have balances for every date, and a Date table that has all dates.

 

Latest Day Balance = var selecteddate = SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])
var maxbalancedate = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[BalanceDate]), ALL('Date'[Date]), 'Table'[BalanceDate]<=selecteddate)
return CALCULATE([Total], 'Date'[Date]=maxbalancedate)
 
If this works for you, please mark it as the solution.  Please let me know if any questions.

@mahoneypat, @jasemilly...

The solution you gave and accepted is not correct if you have different accounts and the last date recorded for each account can be different.
