## Getting values based on latest available dates incl. filtered earlier dates

Hello,

I'm trying to create a table that shows the fields based on the latest available date by default, as well as when filtered.

Sample data:

 Customer Date Sale Client 1 31-Jan-20 10 Client 1 29-Feb-20 15 Client 2 31-Dec-20 8 Client 3 31-Dec-20 2 Client 3 31-Jan-20 5 Client 4 29-Feb-20 9 Client 2 29-Feb-20 6

Output 1 (Default):

 Customer Date Sale Client 1 29-Feb-20 15 Client 2 29-Feb-20 6 Client 3 31-Jan-20 5 Client 4 29-Feb-20 9

Output 2 (Filtered for 31-Jan-20):

 Customer Date Sale Client 1 31-Jan-20 10 Client 2 31-Dec-20 8 Client 3 31-Jan-20 5

LatestDate = MAXX(Table1, Table1[Date]) can generate Output 1, but is missing Client 2 details for Output 2.

Guidance from the gurus will great gratitude!

## Re: Getting values based on latest available dates incl. filtered earlier dates

I change my measure and build a slicer to achieve your goal.

Slicer table:

``Slicer = VALUES(Table1[Date])``

Result:

Measure

``````LatestDate =
VAR _SELECT =
SELECTEDVALUE ( Slicer[Date] )
VAR _A =
MAXX (
FILTER (
ALL ( Table1 ),
Table1[Customer] = MAX ( Table1[Customer] )
&& Table1[Date] <= _SELECT
),
Table1[Date]
)
VAR _B =
MAXX (
FILTER (
ALL ( Table1 ),
Table1[Customer] = MAX ( Table1[Customer] )
&& Table1[Date] <= TODAY ()
),
Table1[Date]
)
RETURN
IF ( ISFILTERED ( Slicer[Date] ), _A, _B )``````
``LastSales = SUMX(FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Table1,Table1[Customer]),Table1[Date]=[LatestDate]),Table1[Sale])``

As default, we will get values based on the latest available dates compare with toady.

Today() = 2020/8/14 so the available dates should be 2020/1/31 and 2020/2/29.

Result:

Select 2020/1/31, the available dates should be 2020/1/31.

Result:

Select 2020/2/29, the available dates should be 2020/1/31 and 2020/2/29.

Result:

Select 2020/12/31, the available dates should be 2020/1/31 , 2020/2/29 and 2020/12/31.

Result:

I am confused about why when you select 2020/1/31, the result will show 2020/12/31. Could you tell me your calculate logic?

@noubstar , Try with Customer in visual table

lastnonblankvalue(Table[Date], Sum(Table[Sale]))
max(Table[Date])

## Re: Getting values based on latest available dates incl. filtered earlier dates

Thanks for the response.

I've set
SaleMeasure = lastnonblankvalue(Table[Date], Sum(Table[Sale]))

DateMeasure = max(Table[Date])

and my output when filtering Date = "31-Jan-20" is still

 Customer DateMeasure SaleMeasure Client 1 31-Jan-20 10 Client 3 31-Jan-20 5

I think it's because my Filter is based on Date because I can't put DateMeasure in the Filter section - any idea how to do this?

## Re: Getting values based on latest available dates incl. filtered earlier dates

You may try my measure.

I build a table like yours to have a test.

Measure:

``LatestDate = MAXX(FILTER(all(Table1),Table1[Customer]=MAX(Table1[Customer])), Table1[Date]) ``
``LastSales = SUMX(FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Table1,Table1[Customer]),Table1[Date]=[LatestDate]),Table1[Sale])``

Result:

Default:

Filter 2020/1/31 it will still show the latest date in measure:

## Re: Getting values based on latest available dates incl. filtered earlier dates

Thank you for building out the dataset. However, your outputs still do not match the desired output of "latest available value, subject to any date filters". Have highlighted difference in blue font.

Default:

 Customer LatestDate LatestSale Client 1 29-Feb-20 15 Client 2 29-Feb-20 6 Client 3 31-Jan-20 5 Client 4 29-Feb-20 9

Filter (31-Jan-20):

 Customer LatestDate LatestSale Client 1 31-Jan-20 10 Client 2 31-Dec-20 8 Client 3 31-Jan-20 5

## Re: Getting values based on latest available dates incl. filtered earlier dates

Sorry @RicoZhou , just noticed your dates are Jan-20, Feb-20 and Dec-20. The max portion works for the Default mode, but still doesn't work for the filtered dates.

I want the same output for Default as the filter for Dec-20, but only 2 entries are shown for your workbook.

## Re: Getting values based on latest available dates incl. filtered earlier dates

Thanks a lot @RicoZhou

The new Latest Date measure + slicer work perfectly!

FYI, the output I showed was what I wanted to get but could not seem to get with the earlier measures, but your current solution has solved this.

Thanks again!!
