Look up value based on two criteria?

So I have 3 columns involved in this issue. [Name], [Date], and [ID]. The [ID] column is unique but can contain multiple [Name] values for each [ID]. What I want to return is the most recent [Name] based on the [ID] using the [Date] column. How would I go about doing this?

@nobodyukno try followin measure

 

Recent Name = 
VAR __latestDate = 
CALCULATE( 
MAX( Table[Date]),
ALLEXCEPT( Table, Table[Id])
)
RETURN
CALCULATE(
MAX( Table[Name]),
Table[Date] = __latestDate
)

Add a table visual, put Id and Recent Name measure on and you will have the result

Re: Look up value based on two criteria?

Thank you @parry2k. Is there a way to do this but for a calculated column instead?

Re: Look up value based on two criteria?

Any other ideas? I need a calculated column as I need to use a matrix instead of a table.

Hi @nobodyukno 

As tested, parry2k's solution can be used in a calcuated column or a measure

Hi,

This can be done in a calculated column but then that column would not refresh when you make a change in a filter/slicer.
