## Max in calculated column excluding current row

I created a column with the following expression to calculate the maximum sales of an account for a product in a zip code:

MaxSales =
calculate(max(Table[Sales]),allexcept(Table,Table[ZipCode],Table[Product]))

It works, but now I want to exclude the current row from the maximum calculation.  In other words, if the current account has the maximum sales, then show the second highest account's sales.  See the example below:

 AccountNumber ZipCode Product Sales MaxSales 101 04401 Chairs 750 1,000 102 04401 Chairs 1,000 750 103 04401 Chairs 300 1,000 104 04401 Chairs 400 1,000

Is this possible?  I know I can do this as a measure but I'm trying to make it a calculated column to see if this improves the speed by not doing the maximum calculation on the fly.

Hi  @Mainer04401 ,

Here are the steps you can follow：

1. Create calculated column.

Column =
var _1 =CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Sales]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Sales]=MAX('Table'[Sales])))
var _2 =CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Sales]),FILTER('Table',RANKX('Table','Table'[Sales])=2))
return IF('Table'[Sales]=MAX('Table'[Sales]),_2,_1)

2. Result.

@Mainer04401 , Try a measure like

calculate(Max(Table[Sales]), filter(allselected(Table[AccountNumber]) ,Table[AccountNumber] <> max(Table[AccountNumber])))

or

calculate(Max(Table[Sales]), filter(allselected(Table) ,Table[AccountNumber] <> max(Table[AccountNumber])))

Proud to be a Super User!

@amitchandak Thanks, I've gotten this to work as a measure but I'm trying to make a calculated column so that the calculation occurs during data refresh and not on the fly.  Can the current row's value be excluded from the maximum calculation when doing so in a calculated column?
