Hi @jaafer,

 

You can simply  use summarize function to create a table to store summarized 'item no' and max 'post date'.

Table =
SUMMARIZE (
    FILTER ( 'Sample', [entry type] = "sale" ),
    [item no],
    "MaxDate", MAX ( 'Sample'[posting date] )
)

HI @jaafer,

 

Nope, it not in query editor, it is dax formula.

 

You can navigate to modify tab and choose new table, then input these to formula panel.
