Max date in a column

Hi All, 
I have a date column called FileDate, and I'm trying to get the latest date in that column.

Yaa_D_0-1636537262612.png
I've tries using MAX or LASTDATE in the following ways: 

maxFileDate = LASTDATE(('myTable'[FileDate].[Date])
maxFileDate = MAX('myTable'[FileDate].[Date])
maxFileDate = CALCULATE(MAX('myTable'[FileDate].[Date]), All())

All return 12/31/2021 although the last date in that column is Nov 9th

What am I missing here?
Thanks for the help!

@Yaa_D Lose the .[Date] part of your formula and I would use MAX so:

maxFileDate = MAX('myTable'[FileDate])

Hello @Greg_Deckler  , thank you for this tip . I also used it at a similar issue I had and it worked just fine . May I ask what is the implication of using the .[Date] at the end? Thank you, George Giannakis

Perfect. Thank you!
