## How to get the value of Column A for the row that has the highest value in column B ?

I have a database of Premier League matches for 20 seasons, along with the matchday and the point total for each team in every match, so I wanna create a "Season" table out of it, and add a "Champion" calculated column that gives you the value of "HomeTeam" or "AwayTeam" that has the highest value out of both "HTPointsSeason" and "ATPointsSeason" in MatchWeek 38 rows (basically the team that has the most points after the last match of the season, which is made a little more complicated by the fact that teams are spread over HomeTeam and AwayTeam, so if the highest value is in the ATPS column, I gotta get the value of that row in AwayTeam, and respectively for HTPS and HomeTeam).

Is there any way to both get the value of the row in another column AND get the row and the column that have the highest value?

Here's the data:

(Also, if there's a way to do this, how to handle tie breakers in Power BI ? As in if there's a draw on points at the end of the season like in 2011/12, how to make it so it chooses the team with the highest goal difference among the teams tied for most points ?)

Sorry if this seems obvious, but I'm still learning and I like being confronted with these learning opportunities.

OK, I think I am starting to follow. You want a multi-column aggregation. Luckily, I invented one quite a while ago.

## Re: How to get the value of Column A for the row that has the highest value in column B ?

Not very clear, but earlier can help

``````Max value = maxx(filter(table,table[team] =earlier(table[team]) && table[A] =earlier(table[A])),table[B])
``````

when you have use date

``Last Date Time = maxx(filter(table,table[Date Time]<earlier(table[Date Time])),table[Date Time])``

You can add/remove conditions at per need

 HomeTeam AwayTeam Manchester United Leicester City West Ham Utd Liverpool FC Aston Villa Arsenal

 HomeTeamPoints AwayTeamPoints 81 59 46 94 37 65

In this simplified example, the script would look at the HTP and ATP columns, see that the max in both of them is 94, so it'd return the value associated with it, which is Liverpool (1st scan for the highest value in both (94), then get the column it's in to know if we should look in HomeTeam or AwayTeam (it's in ATP so AT), and the row to know which value to return (2nd row, so Liverpool)).
