How to get the earlier date



I have a measure that results in dates and I'd to get the earlier date (in this case 30/05/2027). Is import to say that I put at FALSE argument (IF) the blank() but I accept other sugestions.



Do you know if is possible?

Hi @luizahenriques ,


According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1) We can create a measure. 

earlier date = MINX(FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[UltimoMesSaldo]<>BLANK()),[UltimoMesSaldo])

(2) Then the result is as follows.

Thank for answering! But this functions work only with columns, not measures. "UltimoMesSaldo" is a measure.

If you just need to get the last date overall, you can create a measure to return the last date. Something like: CALCULATE(LASTDATE(UltimoMesSaldo), ALL(TableName)). Sorry i don't have accent keys on this keyboard BTW.

Or, you can look into the LastNonBlank function to return the last value which is not blank. Docs here:
