Hi @AlexEnergee3,


In your scenario, you can using SUMMARIZECOLUMNS() function to create a new calculated table. Right?


Then to achieve your requirement, you can create a new measure in this new calculated table. The expression is like:


MAX Total Period =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Table[TotalPeriod] ), ALLEXCEPT ( Table, Table[Name] ) )
