Latest date

Hi Experts,

 

I am new to Power BI and have a question, i know how to get this in a pivot in excel but trying hard to convert the same idea in Power BI. I have data as below.

 

Type(From table 1)Item(From table 2)Created on(From table 2)
FruitAppleJan 2
FruitAppleJun 12
FruitOrangeSep 22
CarHondaMar 14
CarNissanMay 14
CarBMWOct 24
VegetableCarrotNov 16
VegetableCarrotOct 10
VegetableCarrotMar 22

 

I want a list to look like the below, which basically is the last day a record was created in that category.

Type(From table 1)Created on (From table 2)
FruitSep 22
CarOct 24
VegetableNov 16

 

With that result the created on column should be sorted from the last date first.

Thanks in advance for your help and response.

Hi @Titus_D 

you can create this formula like this:

  1. Right click table name in field list, choose New Measure.
  2. Copy and paste the formula from my previous post or write it manuelly into the formulabar.
  3. Press Enter.

@Titus_D ,

 

I do not know how you are relating those table, if you are. However if you just drag the date column and change the aggregation to max, you get the result you want.

Hi @Titus_D 

what about the following solution:

 

22-10-_2020_14-42-35.png

Max Date = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Created on]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Type]))

@FrankAT  thanks for your response.

 

I am completely new to Power BI so excuse me for some basic questions. Where is the place where i put that formula? Should i click on the column in the visualisation pane and then right click and select quick measure and put the formula there?
