MAX Total Revenue On Card

Hi,

 

I have a table like below:

 

armchairexpert_0-1642520995062.png

 

When the user selects multiple months on Power BI, for example January and February, I show the following:

 

armchairexpert_1-1642521062649.png

 

On the card I have to show the Maximum Revenue which is 260,000. As it will be 'Category A' which will be always the maximum, I can also say Category = 'Category A' in the measure. I am using the below measure for the card:

 

Total Revenue = MAXX('Test Table','Test Table'[Revenue])

 

However, it is not showing the aggregated total 260,000 instead it is showing 135,000 which is the maximum for February. What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks.

The measure you've written iterates over each of the rows of 'Test Table' within the filter context and each month is in a separate row of this data table. You haven't told it that you want to aggregate before taking a max.

 

You need to iterate over the granularity that you want to aggregate at:

Max Description-Category Revenue =
MAXX (
    SUMMARIZE (
        'Test Table',
        'Test Table'[Description],
        'Test Table'[Category],
        "Rev", SUM ( 'Test Table'[Revenue] )
    ),
    [Rev]
)

It worked. Thanks!! 😊
