## Top 1 value and best month from Measure

Dear Friend,

I have two tables, Calendar(Date,Month) and Sales(Date,Sales) Tables. I calculated Measure1 using dax with help of Dates column and Sales Column from Sales Table.The output of Measure1 as shown below by Calendar(Month).

 Calendar(Month) Measure1 Jan-24 20 Feb-24 10 Mar-24 30 Apr-24 15

I have Month Slicer on report.

Requirement: when I select any month slicer i want to get top 1 value where Month<=Max(month) from Measure1. For example: i select Feb-24 , output will be Measure2=20 and MonthTop=Jan-2024, or when i select Apr-2024 the output will be Measure2=30 and MonthTop=Mar-2024. How can i achieve this using DAX.

Thanks for the solution @Ashish_Mathur  and @sevenhills  provided, and i want to offer some more informaiton for user to refer to.

hello @Jyaulhaq , based on your description, you can refer to the following sulution.

Sample data

And it has a calendar table and they have a one to many relationship

Create the following measures.

``Measure1 = SUM(Sales[Sales])``
``````Measure2 =
VAR a =
ADDCOLUMNS ( ALL ( Sales ), "Month", EOMONTH ( [Date], 0 ) )
VAR b =
SUMMARIZE ( a, [Month], "Sales", [Measure1] )
RETURN
MAXX (
FILTER ( b, [Month] <= EOMONTH ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), 0 ) ),
[Sales]
)
``````
``````Measure3 =
VAR a =
ADDCOLUMNS ( ALL ( Sales ), "Month", EOMONTH ( [Date], 0 ) )
VAR b =
SUMMARIZE ( a, [Month], "Sales", [Measure1], "Max_Sales", [Measure 2] )
RETURN
FORMAT (
MAXX (
FILTER (
b,
[Sales] = [Max_Sales]
&& [Month] <= EOMONTH ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), 0 )
),
[Month]
),
"MMM-YYYY"
)
``````

Then put the measures to the visual.

Output

To get the top 1 value,

``Get Top 1 Measure1 = CALCULATE( Max('Table'[Measure1]), 'Table'[Calendar(Month)] <= Max('Table'[Calendar(Month)]))``

To get the month based on the top 1 value,

``````Get Top 1 Measure1 CM =
var _s = CALCULATE( Max('Table'[Measure1]), 'Table'[Calendar(Month)] <= Max('Table'[Calendar(Month)]))

RETURN CALCULATE(max('Table'[Calendar(Month)]), FILTER(all('Table'), 'Table'[Measure1] = _s))``````

Samples of output

Hope this helps!

Dear Friend,

Thanks for your reply, Measure1 is the measures not column, that used already many columns and many condition like date<=max(date) and more. i need to get top 1 value as mentioned above.

@Ashish_Mathur  i can't share PBIX file because of confidentially.
