## Determine if one value is higher than MAX value

I'm trying to get a query to differentiate if a past value is greater than the current quarterly value. Using two different Name types beside RecordID, I've got the following test data:

You can see that the second column displays correctly with the icon however I'm trying to stop the icon displaying if the value for 202002 is the highest value. So far, I have this, using a conditional formatting rule to get the icons:

``MMM = IF(SELECTEDVALUE(NewTest[Result]) = CALCULATE(MAX(NewTest[RESULT]), ALLSELECTED(NewTest[Quarter])), 1, 0 )``

Is this achievable? I was thinking to calculate the max Quarter value as a VAR?

@Anonymous - You should be able to do this although exactly how depends on your source data. But, you should be able to do something like:

Measure =

VAR __Max = MAXX(ALL() or ALLEXCEPT(),[Column])) //max overall

VAR __Current = MAX([Column]) //max in current context

RETURN

IF(__Max = __Current...)

Otherwise, Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.

@Anonymous ,

MMM = IF(max(NewTest[Result]) = CALCULATE(MAX(NewTest[RESULT]), allexcept(NewTest,NewTest[Quarter])), 1, 0 )

you needs to all expect , but add a column on row or column other than the month

MMM = IF(max(NewTest[Result]) = CALCULATE(MAX(NewTest[RESULT]), allexcept(NewTest,NewTest[Quarter],NewTest[Item],NewTest[category])), 1, 0 )
