Max Date for Employee Column

I have the following table:

 

DateEmp ID
1/2/2019325
1/3/2019326
1/4/2019325
1/5/2019326
1/7/2019401
1/8/2019401

 

I'd like to get the result:

Emp IDMax Date
3251/4/2019
3261/5/2019
4011/8/2019

 

Does anyone know how to do this in DAX?

Hi @GTPowerBIUser ,

 

I think you might have created a column instead of a measure.

In my answer, I created a measure.

The result will be wrong if you created a calculated column.333.PNG

Hi @GTPowerBIUser ,

 

You just need a measure to use MAX() function.

Max Date =
MAX ( test[Date] )

Then you can use a table visual to get result.

Don’t summarize the value of Emp ID.3-2.PNG

I wish it was that easy. When I tried that I got the max date for the entire column, not the one for the employee column. In sql I would have done something like, max([date] for [employee])
