## Re: How to show highest sale and product name in text box?

Use the aggr() function. For example, if you do not want to make any further distinction (between years, or just for last or current year etc.), you can use this one to get the maximum sales:

=Max(Aggr(Sum(Sales), Product))

If you want to know the name of the product that did best, use this expression:

=FirstSortedValue(Product, -Aggr(Sum(Sales), Product))

Hello

You may use the following expression:

if ([highest sale]= max ([highest sale]), [product name] & ':' & [highest sale])

Hi need help

FirstSortedValue(Product,aggr(sum(Sales),Product)) is not returning any name though FirstSortedValue(Product,-aggr(sum(Sales),Product)) is giving me the minimum sales product
