Return specific value from straight table

I have a straight table where I have 4 dimensions and multiple expressions just showing the value of a cell from a staged excel file.

I need to return specific values through out the straight table. The table has been frozen so it cannot be sorted etc.

Example table below. My 4 dimensions are as of date, partner, partner product, min.max.

I need to be able to pull specific Need values in the columns.

Example: I need to pull the a.2 min needed value 1 and display it in a text object

Then in another text object I need to display the A.2. max value in a text object.

So on and so forth. 

Thank you ahead of time!

Try this:
=Only(if([Partner Product]='A.1' and [Min/Max]='Min',[Needed values 1]))

Try this:
=Only(if([Partner Product]='A.1' and [Min/Max]='Min',[Needed values 1]))

Hey @Shubham_Deshmukh , thanks for your quick response. Looks to be doing exactly what is needed. Thank you!!

 

One more question. There may be multiple dates for that particular 'Partner Product'. How can I also ask to use the maximum date from the 'As of Date' field in addition?

Hope you are expecting this,

=MaxString({<[As Of Date]={"=$(=max([As Of Date]))"},[Partner Product]={'A.1'} , [Min/Max]={'Min'}>}[Needed values 1])
//=Only(if([Partner Product]='A.1' and [Min/Max]='Min',[Needed values 1]))[As Of Date]={"=$(=max([As Of Date]))"},

Hello @Shubham_Deshmukh . Thanks again. However when using the below I am receiving and 'Error: Error in set modifier expression'.

=MaxString({<[As Of Date]={"=$(=max([As Of Date]))"},[Partner Product]={'A.1'} , [Min/Max]={'Min'}>}[Needed values 1])

I left out the commented out portion, does that need to be included? Thoughts?

See my exp, working absolutely fine and getting result,please check you square and curly braces once again. Commented line does not have any effect on expression.

Strange. All I have done is copy and paste your expression and change the names of my fields to what I have. The previous expression without the date is working perfectly.

Hi ,

Look at my data, this is what I am using and expression is same which I mentioned earlier,

Above data and that expression give result = testOutput - which is I think correct output.

Based on what I see below, the result 'testOutput' is correct and is exactly what I am looking to do.

I've made sure my expression matches yours and the expression just returns a hyphen '-'

I guess these something wrong with my date format?

I have an excel file which I am loading. Just as you did I placed a dummy row with a new date in the As Of Date for the same partner product. The column 'As Of Date' in the excel file is formatted as a date (m/d/yyyy).

Any other thoughts as to why it would just return a hyphen?

I changed the date format intentionally, if possible you change your date format and then try.
