How to return a value that precedes the maximum with a measure

Hi all

How can I have returned a value that precedes the maximum from the column called demand?

For example:

The max demand is December with 450 and its capacity is 282, so how can I have in a measure returned 195 and also seprately in another measure its capacity 293?

I already have the max demand measure and its respective capacity with the below measures:

``````Max demand =
MAXX(
VALUES(demand[Date]),
[Production]
)``````

``````Capacity of max demand =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( demand[Capacity] ),
TOPN ( 1, ALLSELECTED (demand[Date] ), [Production], DESC )
)``````

Thanks!

Here is one way to get the demand prior to the max demand.  You can adapt the approach for the capacity value.  Just change the SUM in the return to use the Capacity column instead.

Prev Demand =
VAR summary =
SUMMARIZE ( demand, demand[Date], demand[Demand] )
VAR dateofmaxdemand =
MAXX ( TOPN ( 1summary, demand[Demand], DESC ), demand[Date] )
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( demand[Demand] ),
demand[Date] = EDATE ( dateofmaxdemand-1 )
)

Solved. Getting used to the new icons jeje.

``````Prev capacity =
VAR summary =
SUMMARIZE ( demand, demand[Date], demand[Demand] )
VAR dateofmaxcapacity =
MAXX ( TOPN ( 1, summary, demand[demand], DESC ), demand[Date] )
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( demand[Capacity] ),
demand[Date] = EDATE ( dateofmaxcapacity, -1 )
)``````

Thanks!

Thanks a lot. I am trying to re-applicate with capacity however I'm having some difficulties.

Why demand looks like the icon circled below? We didn't create a measure and it's just a column.

If I try with capacity I don't get anything as seen underlined below in red:

I also tried the following but didn't get the 293 desired result:

How can i make it work?

Thanks!

Thanks @VahidDM !

You used a comparisson of dates to have returned the demand and capacity.

Thanks!

Hi @o59393

Yes I used the dates to find the precede data.

Is that what you need?

I need to use the measure "Production" within your measure.

I tried the following but see the error:
