Dynamic most recent value to filter visuals

Hi, 

 

I'm having trouble finding a way to get PowerBI show the most recent value within a category for the purposes of visualisation. I need the way of finding most recent value to be dynamic, as the report will have a time slicer so we can see the 'most recent' value on given dates going backwards. My data looks something like this:

 

Date

Category

Rating

07/10/2019

A

Red

02/10/2019

B

Green

01/10/2019

C

Yellow

22/09/2019

B

Yellow

22/09/2019

A

Yellow

15/09/2019

C

Green

 

And I might have a bar chart that counts the number of Red/Green/Yellowon a specific date (determined by a date slicer on the page), based on the most recent value within the A, B, C categories.

 

So if the date is set at 23rd September 2019, the bar chart would show 2 Yellow, 1 green and 0 reds. 

 

Hope this makes sense and any help would be much appreciated

Hi @v-diye-msft ,

 

Thank you for taking the time to look at this and provide a response. 

 

Unfortunately, Measure 4, which I think you have used to filter the table, has a syntax error when I have downloaded the .pbix you provided, so it doesn't seem to solve my problem. 

 

Also, does this aoproach work with visuals (e.g. a bar chart) rather than just tables?
