Sort columns based on string value

Hello,

 

I am stuck on something for many days that I think should be fairly easy and any ideas can help!

I have many different statuses (over 15 different, I only show few here) and I need to sort so that the correct status is the one row that is left. If the status is completed, the whole id and all rows shold be filtered away. 

Any idea on how I can sort the ids compared to the statuses? 

If statement or case? I am fairly new to dax and power bi so I am having a hard time finding the correct way of thinking. 

 

This is the example data

Idstatus
1

started

1processing
1ready
1completed
2started
2processing
3started
3processing
3ready

 

And this is the result I want:

idstatus
2processing
3ready

  • Group by ID
  • Custom aggregation (need to use Advanced Filter) to return only the last item in the status column associated with that ID
  • Remove any rows that have a completed status
let
    Source = Table.FromColumns({
        {1,1,1,1,2,2,3,3,3},
        {"started","Processing","ready","completed","started","Processing","started","Processing","ready"}
        },
        type table[id=Int64.Type, status=text]
    ),

//Group by ID and return the "Last" item in the status column
    #"Grouped Rows" = Table.Group(Source, {"id"}, {
        {"status", each List.Last([status]), type text}}),

//Remove any rows where last status is "completed"
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(#"Grouped Rows", each ([status] <> "completed"))
in
    #"Filtered Rows"
