Creating matrix that finds maximum for each row

Hi,

 

I am trying to create a table that shows the record quarter and value of that quarter for different categories like  sum of Sales, sum of AOI, sum of AOI%, etc. I am looking for the quarter with the maximum sum of ___ (whatever category is in question). I created a sample chart of what it should look like in Excel, but I am trying to find a way to build this in Power BI. (also included sample data to hopefully make things understandable)

 

I am able to create individual tables for each category and find the maximum for that category, but I am having a spacing issue when inserting these tables into my report. I was hoping to find a way to create one table for all categories, as the spacing for this would match the rest of the report.

 

Any and all help is appreciated! Thanks!

Please try this measure expression approach to get your max value.  Replace the Return with the code in the comment to get the max quarter. replace Total Sales with your measure.

 

Max Qtr =
VAR vSummary =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        DISTINCT ( 'Date'[YearQuarter] ),
        "cSales", [Total Sales]
    )
VAR vTop1 =
    TOPN (
        1,
        vSummary,
        [cSales]
    )
RETURN
    MINX (
        vTop1,
        [cSales]
    )
//MINX(vTop1, 'Date'[YearQuarter])

Hi,

Please share data in a format that can be pasted in an MS Excel file.  Also, please type numbers in place of xxx.  In the sample dataset, do you have an actual date column (instead of quarter-year)?
