Automatically update a column when a value in another column exist more than once

 

Dear all

 

I have a log table to record each action ("Action" column), when it happen ("Log_Time" column), and its meaning ("Process" column).

 

My target is to automatically update the "Process" column when there is a new action happen after the previous action. 

 

Below is an example:

 

Action A, B, and C happened again, so the process start over after the latest Action A.

 

Action

Log_TimeProcess
Action A1/1/2022Start of Process A
Action B2/1/2022Start of Process B
Action C3/1/2022Start of Process C
Action D3/15/2022Start of Process D
Action E4/1/2022Start of Process E
Action A5/1/2022 
Action B5/4/2022 
Action C5/15/2022 

 

 

Action

Log_TimeProcess
Action A1/1/2022 
Action B2/1/2022 
Action C3/1/2022 
Action D3/15/2022 
Action E4/1/2022 
Action A5/1/2022Start of Process A
Action B5/4/2022Start of Process B
Action C5/15/2022Start of Process C

 

Many thanks!

sorry, somehow forgot to paste in the code for the calculated column:

Column =
VAR _action_A_max =
    CALCULATE (
        MAX ( 'Table'[Log_time] ),
        FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[Process] = "Action A" )
    )
RETURN
    IF (
        'Table'[Log_time] >= _action_A_max,
        CONCATENATE ( "Start of Process ", RIGHT ( 'Table'[Process], 1 ) ),
        BLANK ()
    )
