Display only latest content of a text field based on 2 criteria

I am new to QlikView so appreciate any suggestions in advance for a solution.

I have 2 tables:  

Scan_Details has multiple date entries for each of 2 scan types.  The scan dates are not always the same date. Scan_Insights has all scan dates with summary comments (text) for each scan type. 

In the script, I have created 2 fields that contain the most recent scan date for each type:  MostRecentLXR1Date and MostRecentACB22Date.  (In case that should make things easier!)

Desired result: I need to display only the most recent Scan Insights for each scan type.  And should it be in a table, text box or other?  I have tried several ways but nothing is working.  Currently, the use of ONLY results in a hyphen (-).
