DAX help - Get latest value for each ID

Hi all, 

 

I have a dataset which looks like below and would like to find the last value in each column for each user. 

 

User Name    |   Value   | Date

---------------------------------------

x                       2          12/01/2018

x                       1          13/01/2018

y                       9          11/01/2018

 

Output like this

 

User Name    |   Value   | Date

---------------------------------------

x                      1            13/01/2018

y                       9          11/01/2018

 

I tried using dax using last nonblank but I am missing something. 

 

latest value = CALCULATE(LASTNONBLANK(table[value,MAX(Table[Date])))

 

Also, tried this 

 

Latest value = CALCULATE(LASTNONBLANK(Table[value],""),FILTER(Table,MAX(Table[Date])))

Can somebody please help? 

 

Thanks,

Indhu

Re: DAX help - Get latest value for each ID

Hi,

 

This one works

 

=if(HASONEFILTER(Table1[Name]),LOOKUPVALUE(Table1[Value],Table1[Date],[Latest value],Table1[Name],VALUES(Table1[Name])),BLANK())

 

Hope this helps.

Re: DAX help - Get latest value for each ID

Hi,

 

These 2 measures work fine

 

Last date = LASTNONBLANK(Data[Date],1)

Value on last date = LOOKUPVALUE(Data[Value],Data[Date],[Last date],Data[User Name],VALUES(Data[User Name]))

 

Hope this helps.

Re: DAX help - Get latest value for each ID

Thanks @Ashish_Mathur

 

the first measure works as expected. however, when using the second measure I am not able to convert the name to value and don't know how to proceed further. 

 

Value on last date = LOOKUPVALUE(Data[Value],Data[Date],[Last date],Data[User Name],VALUES(Data[User Name]))

 

1. Is it meant to convert name to text? 

2. Did you mean value? even that doesn't work 

 

This part doesn't work Can you please help? 

 

Thanks again,

Indhu

Re: DAX help - Get latest value for each ID

What do you mean by "I am not able to convert the name to value"?  What error does my formula throw up.  The VALUES() function will return a distinct list of Usernames.  SInce in a row, only one name can appear, it will return only a single value.

Re: DAX help - Get latest value for each ID

For Ashish's second DAX, use SELECTEDVALUE to replace VALUES, this time, it should work.

 

 

Last_Value = LOOKUPVALUE(Data[Value],Data[Date],[Last_Date],Data[User Name],SELECTEDVALUE(Data[User Name]))

Re: DAX help - Get latest value for each ID

@Ashish_Mathur Getting a calculation error.

 

A table of multiple values supplied where a single value was expected. 

 Used same measure as provided not sure why it is not working for me 😞  

 

@Jessica_Seiya If I use as suggested by you nothing gets displayed

Hey, nice solution.

What about situation where there are mutliple values and we want to have a sum of them by each category and latest date?
