Max by group by not working

Hi All,

Please can I know why my max by group by is not working?

I reffered to various threads in here and they have done the same , but doesn't work for me.

I need to find the maximum of 'Changed date' by employee, but it returns the maxium for the table.

Re: Max by group by not working

You are using on the same table that is causing an issue. Ref -https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/allexcept-function-dax

Try using employee from the employee dim

Hi Amit,

Thanks, but I don't have a dimesion table. 

Is it possible to find the maximum within the same table?

Re: Max by group by not working

Hi,

I am a newbie to power BI and DAX,  couldn't understand where the test107measure column/measure came from in the formula  ?

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Calculate-subtotal-using-dax/td-p/564402

 

 

Test107 = CALCULATE(SUM(Test107Measure[Sales]),FILTER(ALL(Test107Measure),Test107Measure[Client]=SELECTEDVALUE(Test107Measure[Client])))

Re: Max by group by not working

Should be something like this in your case

 

Max Employee = CALCULATE(max(sheet1[change Date]),FILTER(ALL(sheet1),sheet1[employee]=SELECTEDVALUE(sheet1[employee]))) 

 

 

So it might work as a measure
