How to get the top 1 value based on date range

Hello everyone!


I have a date range between 2017 and 2022. I would like to now what month and year the higher value happened.


I had to divide the values to get an average based on USD and m3.


    SUM ( 'Base 02'[Reached] ),
    'Base 02'[KPI] = "USD"
    SUM ( 'Base 02'[Reached] ),
    'Base 02'[KPI] = "m³"


 Then I created another measure to get the MAX of USD/m3 ignoring the month and year filters.


MAX USD/m³ = 
VAR SelectedMax =
        MAXX (
            VALUES ( 'Base 02'[Year and Month] ),
            'Calculations Base 02'[USD/m³] 
        ALLSELECTED ( 'Base 02'[Year and Month] )


 The result was successfully displayed. But I don't know how to add the year and month when this value happened.


The currently result is: 1.265.03

I would like something like: 1.265.03  Mar/2020


My year and month table contains the right format of date and it contains a typical hierarchy of calendar.


Thanks in advance.

Hi @gabrieldkvl,

Can you please share a pbix or some dummy data that keep the raw data structure with expected results? It should help us clarify your scenario and test to coding formula.

Hi @gabrieldkvl 


First, you never put table name in front of a measure and there's a very good reason not to do so. Please follow the sacred tradition of DAX developers.


Second, you want to return text, not a number (are you aware of that?). Third, to do what you want you should use the TOPN function and/or ADDCOLUMNS. In the latter case you should then filter for the highest value of the measure and use CONCATENATE(X) on the row(s) returned. There can be more than 1 row returned with the highest value, hence CONCATENATEX.
