Re: Finding value related to latest Date

Oh yes, sorry, I did it as a measure. I tried it as a column and it looks perfect! I never know when to use columns or measures.


Anyway, I think you've solved it. Thanks buddy!

Re: Finding value related to latest Date

Calculated Column :


 It will execute at Query loading time.

It will occupy the space in RAM , So it was costly.

It will give u better performance rather then Measure.



Calculated Measure :


It will Execute an visual load Time.

No need space.

If u have better DAX , it will give u better performance. 


Choose your way.


My personal suggestion :


1. If u have less data go with Column.

2. Have huge data go with Measure.

Re: Finding value related to latest Date





I'm trying to create a measure based on the solution you provided here, with a similar issue of the original poster., in that I want the latest, not the max on the latest date to be the result.


Am I correct in thinking the syntax for the measure you provided here is for the max price? How would I correct the following formula to give me just the latest?


Here's my example data:


Student ID; Package ID; sent_time

1; 1; 1/1/17

1; 2; 1/2/17

1; 4; 1/3/17

2; 2; 1/3/17

2; 4; 1/14/17

3; 1; 1/2/17


My two IDs are in text form. Want I want is a measure instead of a calculated column or table (I have two million rows and counting on this table, which has relationships with 4 other tables). So for this I would have Student ID 1, Package ID 4...Student ID2, Package ID 4, Student ID 3, Package ID 1 with only the Package IDs as the result.


I used your formula:


Stop ID = var cur_student_id = CONCATENATEX('Packages', 'Packages'[Student ID],",")
var max_date = CALCULATE(MAX('Packages'[send_time]),
FILTER(ALL('Packages'), 'Packages'[Student ID]=cur_student_id))

var result = CALCULATE(MAX('Packages'[Package ID]),
filter(ALL('Packages'), AND('Packages'[send_time]=max_date, 'Packages'[Student ID]=cur_student_id)))

return result


I don't get an error running the formula, but when I try to put the results in a report, it doesn't run through. I think the issue is this? var result = CALCULATE(MAX('Packages'[Package ID]), 

since I don't want the MAX Package ID, just what the Latest Package ID is for the latest date.


I hope I'm making sense!


Thanks for any help!

Re: Finding value related to latest Date

Hello @Framet ,

I appreciate you answer and it is quite helpful, but I need something slightly different. Instead of the latest price I need to pull the latest text input. Any ideas on how to handle this with text instead of numbers
