Hi @KSPG,

 

Even though this can be a lot simpler task in Power Query, since you have asked in DAX, here you go. Create two new columns, one for Date and another for Text based on the position of the comma.

 

Date = LEFT('Table'[Message],SEARCH(",",'Table'[Message])-1)

 

Text = MID('Table'[Message],SEARCH(",",'Table'[Message])+2,LEN('Table'[Message]))

 

Now create this measure and add it in a card visual:

 

Latest Message = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Text]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Date]=MAX('Table'[Date])))

 

Works for you? Mark this post as a solution if it does!
