LASTNONBLANK result not pulling in correctly

When I use LASTNONBLANK it pulls in the last value correctly unless the last value is less than the previous value in the table. 

 

I have a table with my last value as 176,000 but it pulls in the value above it with the value of 176,599.  If I increase my bottom row to a value larger than 176,599 it then is pulled in correctly.

 

My measure is:          Youtube Total Subscribers = LASTNONBLANK('Youtube Stats'[Total Subscriber Count],1)

 

Is there something I need to add if the bottom row value is less than the previous row?

FirstNonBlank /LastNonBlank return the first/last value respectively in the column…..after sorting the column in its native Ascending Order..

 

They are quite similar to Min and Max functions in many ways

 

If you want the last row value.....you can add an Index Column in your table and then use it to get the last value
