## MAXX of Category based on DistinctCount of rows

Hi,
I have a sample data below. What I'm trying to do is show the State which has the Max value of rows based on the distinct count of IDs.
Answer = West, which has 4 IDs count
I know how to show the value 4, but not the State = West.
My code:

DistinctCount = DISTINCTCOUNT(Table[ID])
Max Value = MAXX(values(Table[State]),[DistinctCount])

 ID State A West B West C East D North E West F West G East

Can anyone help me with bringing out the value "West"?

Thank you.

Hi @Anonymous ,

I have checked Jihwan_Kim's code, I think his measure will alway return "West", due to it will return the max state.

My Sample:

The max state in my sample should be "East".

``````State name max count: =
VAR _MaxCount =
MAXX ( VALUES ( 'Table'[State] ), [DistinctCount] )
RETURN
MAXX (
FILTER ( VALUES ( 'Table'[State] ), [DistinctCount] = _MaxCount ),
[State]
)``````

Result in my sample is as below.

Test by your data, result should return "West".

Hi,

Please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

``````State name max count: =
MAXX (
GROUPBY (
ADDCOLUMNS ( VALUES ( 'Table'[State] ), "@count", [DistinctCount] ),
'Table'[State],
"@maxcount", MAXX ( CURRENTGROUP (), [@count] )
),
'Table'[State]
)
``````
