Determining the max value of a field, not globally, between two date fields that are not static

Hello.  Long time listener, second time caller.

My question:

    - I am trying to find the maximum of the field NomEG between:  [FirstRevDateTime] <= [Date Time] <= [BodyUpStartTime]

    • I tried a set analysis, but the global filtering caused it to 'work', but not as intended. 

Thank you for any guidance you are willing to offer!

I have a table with the following dimensions & measures:


I am trying identify the max value of a field.


However, I want that number for each HaulID.  The table does that.

I want the max NomEG from the last five minutes of a haul AND after the first reverse.  Another way to say this is a truck will drive around an unknown amount of time.  I only care about the last portion of the haul, the last five minutes.  Then, I want to review what is happening once the driver ! starts backing up.

The problem I have run into is the first reverse in the last five minutes moves.  To locate where that was, I used this FirstSortedValue to find FirstRevDateTime.


That worked fine for identifying my 'FirstRevDateTime'.  However, using that as a range definition point continues to allude me.

    - I am trying to find the maximum of the field NomEG between:  [FirstRevDateTime] <= [Date Time] <= [BodyUpStartTime]

    - It seemed like an easy next step...

I tried using Set Analysis:

    aggr(min({$<[Date Time] = {">=$(=max(FirstRevDateTime))"},ReverseRequest={1},ForwardRequest={0}>}NomEG),HaulID)

    •           After I took the time to get this working, I learned that ">=$(=max(FirstRevDateTime))" functions globally
    •           So, while it 'worked', it will only give me the correct value on my max(FirstRevDateTime).

So, I come seeking wisdom.  Is there another way to do this?

    • Is there a way to manipulate that set analysis equation to look for the FirstRevDateTime in a manner that is not global?
    • I think FirstSortedValue or RangeMax or RangeSum are tools I can use to accomplish this, but I haven't been able to identify the logic to get those to work.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.  I have pasted the main portion of my script below.

On another note...I am a noob at this.  I am aware I am likely not using Table to Table relations correctly.  If you have any insights on ways to improve my table to table calculations, I would welcome inputs.

  • Should I be using DropTable?
  • Is my use of Resident tables incorrect?

Thank you for any guidance you are willing to offer!
