Creating a Measure/Column Which Shows the Most Recent Value and one which shows the Oldest

Good Morning, 

 

My first post on this forum, so I apologize if I'm not wording the question appropriately. However, I'm struggling to figure this out based on the existing articles I've looked at, so I'm hoping a specific question will provide the answers I need. 

 

My sales organization wants to see a table of original values, and then the most recent values. I have this data located within a history table, however, I'm not sure how to present it in a table. 

 

I need to be able to pull the latest "NewValue" by whatever the most recent date of "CreatedDate". Likewise, I'm needing a way to show the the oldest "OldValue" by the earliest date of "CreatedDate" 

 

The dataset looks like this...

Operations would like to see something like this (just throwing some random numbers in the graph below to clarify)

Hi @v-rongtiep-msft 

 

This is close, but not exactly what I'm trying to accomplish. 

 

I would like to create a measure that shows the most recent value, and another that shows the oldest value, which will allow me to have only one instance of the quote in the row. 

 

Here is a pictured version. I've also attached this much abbreviated datasheet, as well as a dummy project file to play with.

Hey there, this was super helpful, however I'm running into another issue! It refuses to aggregate these totals. As you see in the example above, the totals are just the last line. I need to know the total sum of these changes. 

 

In my report....

For sample data, you can still use the PBIX you provided above

you did not specify that requirement before.  You will need to summarize by Line Name to get the totals.

 

Most Recent New Value = 
var a = SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[Line Name],"md",max('Table'[CreatedDate]))
var b = ADDCOLUMNS(a,"sm",var md = [md] return CALCULATE(max('Table'[NewValue]),'Table'[CreatedDate]=md))
return sumx(b,[sm])

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("jc9LDoMwDEXRraCMqYh/L+A1tFI7Rux/Gy2kQkmJClPr6Nqe5/C636IABA19oMEGls6ctHs+PgOEpW8bceZsrDQw2QxWA1dpdCpjrjGb8Y+R6dhJFIt74EznhiybVBqztBniFbFr47EDoi/SCgF1CReQjK11v8j20vIG", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"Line Name" = _t, CreatedDate = _t, NewValue = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Line Name", type text}, {"CreatedDate", type datetime}, {"NewValue", Int64.Type}}),
    #"Grouped Rows" = Table.Group(#"Changed Type", {"Line Name"}, {{"Min Date", each List.Min([CreatedDate]), type nullable datetime}, {"Max Date", each List.Max([CreatedDate]), type nullable datetime}, {"Rows", each _, type table [Line Name=nullable text, CreatedDate=nullable datetime, NewValue=nullable number]}}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Grouped Rows", "NewValue at Min Date", each Table.SelectRows([Rows],(k)=> k[CreatedDate]=[Min Date])[NewValue]{0},Int64.Type),
    #"Added Custom1" = Table.AddColumn(#"Added Custom", "NewValue at Max Date", each Table.SelectRows([Rows],(k)=> k[CreatedDate]=[Max Date])[NewValue]{0},Int64.Type),
    #"Removed Other Columns" = Table.SelectColumns(#"Added Custom1",{"Line Name", "Min Date", "Max Date", "NewValue at Min Date", "NewValue at Max Date"})
in
    #"Removed Other Columns"

Hi @nicholas058 ,

I have created a simple sample, please refer to my pbix file to see if it helps you.

Create measures.

Old = var _1=minx(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[ID]=SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[ID])),'Table'[DATE])
return
IF(MAX('Table'[DATE])=_1,MAX('Table'[VALUE]),BLANK())
old_re = MAXX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[ID]=SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[ID])),[Old])

And so on.
