trying to list the most recent value of a type

Hi,

I am trying to list the most recent value of a type.


date     type    value
1-1-2016 RED     210
2-1-2016 RED     170
10-1-2016 RED    190
1-1-2016 GREEN   400
15-1-2016 GREEN  560
16-1-2016 GREEN  500
2-2-2016 YELLOW  180
10-2-2016 YELLOW 200
18-2-2016 YELLOW 240

The only result that I want to have in a calculate table is:

10-1-2016 RED 190
16-1-2016 GREEN 500
18-2-2016 YELLOW 240

 

But every time, i get the sum of all three line items (for yellow: 180+200+240, instead of 240).

I manage to select the lastdate, with LASTDATE(date), but i get always the summed (180+200+240) value.

 

What about to create a calculated table, that has only the last values in it per type? Then is will not sum the different values for the dates as these are not in the table.

 

Any suggestions?

John

hi @JohnD2

 

A give you a solution but not using calculate table;

 

1: Create a measure:

 

RankDate =
RANKX (
    ALLEXCEPT ( Table1, Table1[Type] ),
    CALCULATE ( VALUES ( Table1[Date] ) ),
    ,
    DESC,
    SKIP
)

2, Use this measure as Visual Level filters
