Filter Max Value By Two Columns

Hi,

 

I have a transactions query with product ID and transaction date.

 

I want to filter the transaction date, so that it shows the latest transaction date for each product.

 

For example:

Product 1 1/1/2020

Product 1 1/2/2020

Product 2 1/5/2020

 

Will be converted to:

Product 1 1/2/2020

Product 2 1/5/2020

 

Where for each product, it only shows the row that has the max date.

 

I would like to do this in Power Query if possible, not DAX. Help will be appriciated.

Hello @numersoz 

 

select your transaction column, and launch the group function. Select there your new name of the date, function max and your date column

Here is the code

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WCijKTylNLlEwVNJRMjDUAyIjA6VYHUwJI3QJI4QOQ6wSxnpGRkqxsQA=", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Transaction = _t, Date = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Transaction", type text}, {"Date", type date, "de-DE"}}),
    #"Grouped Rows" = Table.Group(#"Changed Type", {"Transaction"}, {{"Date", each List.Max([Date]), type date}})
in
    #"Grouped Rows"

Copy paste this code to the advanced editor in a new blank query to see how the solution works.
