## Filtering the last valid record dynamically

Hello,

I have a the following use case:

On the one hand I have employees, where the working hours per week changing from a specific starting date.

On the other hand I have a table, where all changes are posted for each employee with starting date and working hours week.

In my report, I have two single slicers, one for the year ie. 2019, 2020 etc. and one for the months 1 - 12

My challenge now is calculating the active value for working hours per week depending on the Date Filter of the slicers.

Table Employee

Table Workscheme

What would I expect?

Example 1:

Date Filter (of slicer): February 2019

Example 2:

Date Filter (of slicer): May 2019

I tried several approaches with LASTNONBLANK, LASTDATE etc., but none of them worked properly.

Does anybody have an idea how to handle this issue?

Thank you in advance 🙂

Stefan

Hi @SFeldmann ,

Firstly, you need to create a new table to save date.

```Date =
CALENDAR ( MIN ( 'Table'[Starting Date] ), MAX ( 'Table'[Starting Date] ) )
```

Then create a column to be compared with Starting date.

```YM =
VALUE ( 'Date'[Date].[Year] & FORMAT ( 'Date'[Date], "mm" ) )
```

Now, you can create a new measure “Hours Week”.

```Hours Week =
VAR selectDate =
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[YM], MIN ( 'Date'[YM] ) )
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Working Hours Week] ),
FILTER (
'Table',
VALUE ( FORMAT ( 'Table'[Starting Date], "yyyymm" ) )
= VALUE (
FORMAT (
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Table'[Starting Date] ),
ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[Employee Code] ),
selectDate >= VALUE ( FORMAT ( 'Table'[Starting Date], "yyyymm" ) )
),
"yyyymm"
)
)
)
)```

At last, you can use slicer to filter your table.

Thank you for your solution, that works totally fine.

One final comment that has to be considered to this solution: They must be no relationship between the Date[Date] and the Workscheme[Starting Date].

Best Regards,

Stefan
