## Finding the maximum value of two measures across various categories

Hi community,

I have searched for a solution here in the forum and on the web, came a couple of times close but ultimately wasn't able to solve my problem.

I have a matrix visual similar to this example:

 ‘Table’ [Category] [Measure Sum X] [Measure Sum Y] A 3 75 B 23 34 C 1 103 D 112 9 E 63 73 F 28 87

Now, I want to create a measure givng me the overall maximum value in this matrix. In this case "112".

I have tried

``Value Max = MAX('Measures'[Measure Sum X], 'Measures'[Measure Sum Y])``

but this only gives me the maximum value per category and not the desired overall maximum value.

Finally, I want to use this measure to standardize all values in the matrix to a percentage between 0% and 100%, with 100% representing the maximum value.

All help welcome. Thank you very much!

Try it like this.

``````Value Max =
CALCULATE (
MAXX ( VALUES ( 'Table'[Category] ), MAX ( [Measure Sum X], [Measure Sum Y] ) ),
ALLSELECTED ( 'Table' )
)``````
``````X % =
IF (
HASONEVALUE ( 'Table'[Category] ),
DIVIDE ( [Measure Sum X], [Value Max] )
)``````
``````Y% =
IF (
HASONEVALUE ( 'Table'[Category] ),
DIVIDE ( [Measure Sum Y], [Value Max] )
)``````

Thank you very much for your help @jdbuchanan71 ! Works like a charm! 🙂

Have a great week!

Hi

Try this ==>

Value Max = calculate(MAX('Measures'[Measure Sum X], 'Measures'[Measure Sum Y]),removefilter())

Thank you very much @Anonymous !

For other people trying your formula, just the hint that the 's' for "REMOVEFILTERS" is missing.

``Value Max = calculate(MAX('Measures'[Measure Sum X], 'Measures'[Measure Sum Y]), REMOVEFILTERS())``

Nevertheless this formula unfortunately did not give me the expected values. Therfore I will go with the solution from @jdbuchanan71 . But thanks so much for your efforts!

Have a great week!
