renaming all but latest value in a column for an ID in another column.

i have three columns - status, user and month.   the status is the same for every month for each user but it is only correct for the last month, all earlier entries should be "Active".  is there a way in power query to change?

 

how it is:

StatusUserMonth
CompleteUser11/01/2021
CompleteUser11/02/2021
CompleteUser11/03/2021
WithdrawnUser21/01/2021
WithdrawnUser21/02/2021
WithdrawnUser21/03/2021
ActiveUser21/01/2021
ActiveUser21/02/2021
ActiveUser21/03/2021

 

how it should be:

StatusUserMonth
Activeuser11/01/2021
ActiveUser11/02/2021
Completeuser11/03/2021
ActiveUser21/01/2021
ActiveUser21/02/2021
WithdrawnUser21/03/2021
ActiveUser21/01/2021
ActiveUser21/02/2021
ActiveUser21/03/2021

You can add a custom column in PQ as follows. Please check the attached file below my signature.

(x)=>  if List.Max(Table.SelectRows( #"Changed Type", each x[User]=[User] and x[Status]=[Status])[Month]) = x[Month] then x[Status] else "Active"
