Finding the first value in column based on date or sequence

Hi everyone

I have a challenge to find the first order number in a table when I apply a date slicer.

The FIRSTNONBLANK() gets me back the first one by sorting them but I don't want to sort them, I need to have the first one based on the date/time column or sequence column.

Thanks

@Matt_Gol Try this pattern:

Measure = 
  VAR __Date = MIN('Table'[Date])
  VAR __Table = FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[Date] = __Date)
  VAR __Result = MINX(__Table, [Order Number])
RETURN
  __Result
