Filter values for last Date only

hello, i have a matrix and I only want to filter the lastest month of data.  So if the value exist in a different month. It should not filter the table.  The filtering should only take place if the value exist in the latest Date (in this case May)


what is the best approach? thannks for any assistancefilter pbi.JPG

What exactly do you mean?  What result are you expecting?

the last month in this Matrix is May... if I use the filter, it should only work for the column of May.  Right now it will filter the entire Matrix. i only want to Filter May (the lastest Month in the Matrix)





So you only want to see those rows where in the last month of the matrix, the matched rates are between the conditions specified in the slicer.


Am i correct?


If yes, then share the link from where i can download your PBI file.

thanks.  I want to see all the data. But the filter should only take into account the values in the lastest date column (in this case May).


if you filter between 70-80, but May column does not contain values between 70-80 it should not filter the table, even though values 70-80 exist in another column. hope that made sense.!Av69y58QJYzRjyE4igUTbHkFchba


thanks again.

Hi @ilcaa72,

Based on my test, you could refer to below steps:

Create two measures:

Max Month = FORMAT(MAXX(ALL('test'),IF(ISFILTERED(test[MatchedRate]),CALCULATE(MAX('test'[Date])))),"mmmm")
Filter Value = CALCULATE(SUM(test[MatchedRate]),FILTER('test','test'[Date].[Month]=[Max Month]))



You can also download the PBIX file to have a view.

You calculation just returns the value of the last column, (no filter on page), if I drag it onto Values, the only value that appears is the last value. 


I want all the values to appear in the matrix for every month.  But I only want to filter to work on the last column (most recent month). or only take into account the values of the last column.   your test setup is different from my workbook that i attached,
