Avoid duplicates

Thanks for looking at my post.

 

I have below calculated table formula. Issue is i dont want repeated numbers in the col1 but inspite of putting distinct there are few numbers getting repeated. Any idea please?

 

Thanks  a lot

 

Table = DISTINCT(SELECTCOLUMNS(FILTER('table','table'[Column]='table'[RecDate]),"col1",'table'[PartNumber],"Comments",'table'[Comment],"Comment",'table'[RecDate],"Date",'table'[RecDate]))

Your format is taking the distinct combination of column1, comments and dates combined. So something like:

column1commentsdate
1test23/08/2023
1test224/08/2023

are being counted as 2 different entries. 

If you want to keep the latest entry per column 1 value, consider something like:

 

Table =
FILTER (
    'TABLE',
    'TABLE'[RecDate]
        = CALCULATE (
            MAX ( 'TABLE'[RecDate] ),
            ALLEXCEPT ( TABLE, 'TABLE'[PartNumber] )
        )
)

 

or consider how else you want to determine which of the duplicate values to keep.
