## Calculate outgoing balance for products with different max dates within a month

Hi,

I'm trying to calculate the outgoing balances for the chosen month for different products in the same pivot table.

The problem is that the products have different max dates.

Sum({\$<%Date={'\$(vMaxDate)'}>}DELIVERYQTY)

And the variable vMaxDate is: =Max({\$<Type={'D'}>}%Date)

The products might have max dates:

Product A = Max date = 2016-02-29

Product B = Max date = 2016-02-27

One solution might be to create a variable that is a nested if or maybe in the script find the maxDate for each product.

vMaxDateA =Max({\$<Product={'A'},Type={'D'}>}%Date)

vMaxDateB =Max({\$<Product={'B'},Type={'D'}>}%Date)

and so on but the problem will be if new products arrive and to maintain the nested if :I.

Any ideas?

sum(aggr(FirstSortedValue(DELIVERYQTY, -%Date),Product))

Thanks Gysbert,

I was actually just experimenting with firstsortedvalue and aggr.

I tried your expression but it returns 0 on all the rows.

I get some results with this, not the correct results though .

=FirstSortedValue( aggr(sum(DELIVERYQTY),Product,%Date), -aggr(%Date,Product,%Date) )

Still haven't solved this, any ideas?

Gysbert, haven't got the expression with firstsortedvalue to work yet.
