## Re: Finding Max Value

The calculated column you want to add is really just the maximum value so far in the P/L \$ column.

You could use a DAX calculated column like this:

```Max so far =
VAR CurrentDateTime = Data[Date] + Data[Time]
RETURN
CALCULATE (
MAX ( Data[P/L \$] ),
ALL ( Data ),
FILTER (
ALL ( Data[Date], Data[Time] ),
Data[Date] + Data[Time]
<= CurrentDateTime
)
)```

## Re: Finding Max Value

You simply have to write :

MaxValue = MAX(['YourTable'[P/L \$];'YourTable'[Column2])

## Re: Finding Max Value

Thanks @quentin_vigne

I did that but the requirement is to find max of PL value with the above value on the other column.

This is more like running total but here we are looking for max value between 2 values.

## Max Value Calculation

Hello,

I am trying to create a formula which will find the Max value between one above and one parallel values on two columns. Excel for and screenshot given below,

I feel this is more like cumulative total or a running total but here i need to find the max of PL with above column.

## Re: Finding Max Value

Hello,

I think your requirement isn't absolutely clear.

If you search Max depending on specfic value you need

MaxOfValue=CALCULATE(MAX([SearchColumn]),FILTER(Table,[FactColumn]=SearchValue))

If you just want to find the maximum value @quentin_vigne is absolutely correct.

Best regards.

## Re: Finding Max Value

Hello @Floriankx

The requirement is to find the Max value from 2 columns, like we do cumulative total or the running total (current cell added with the above cell to give running balance).

In the below screenshot, i need to find max of column C2 with column D1. The result for the requirement is highlighted in yellow.

## Re: Finding Max Value

Hello,

in this case calculated colum should be fine, but D1 can't be calculated dynamically as far as I know.

So you could either use a helper table to provide this Value or you have to type it.

Column=MAX([P/L \$],[CompareValue])
