Hi @Hyperchef1969 ,


You could probably try the RANKX function.

Hi, I do not get the required results with above mentioned solutions. To be more specific: I need a table which represents the latest end time and machine status per machine ID. How can I achieve this?



I think this will help ? 






LastStatus = 
SUMMARIZE('Table';'Table'[ID]; "mx"; MAX('Table'[End time]));

What will be the final output?

According to my understanding,

This is the what you need.

If not, Please provide a sample output.







Thanks for your feedback. I don't get the correct result with the summarize function but formula with '
Calculate(lastnonblank) works partly. Then I get the underlying table.  When I put the color into the table, the lastnonblank for every color is presented. This is not what I need. I need one color of the last non blank. See printscreen as an example.  I have 8 machines so I need the 8 rows which presents the machine ID, the last non blank date/time and the related color. For machine ID 1 this is the color Red, for machine ID 2 color Red, for machine ID 3 color orange, etc... Thanks for support in advance.

The first row in your image is not the max of the End time.  Infact it is the minimum.  I am not clear with your end result.
