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] )
)

 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!
