## Max value for list box expression

I have a fairly simple expression I need. I'm new at this so it may be easy for some.

I need to generate the Max value for the Linear gauge shown below based on 9 items each.

See below for Clarity. Right now I typed in the max but that is only to prove to myself it will work. So 214 is the Max value Im trying to derive here.

Right now I have: =Rangemax((Count(TopLevelWBS)))  = 703 the Sum Total not Max value from the count

Brian,

I assume it is a list box with expression.  Try this:
max(aggr(Count(TopLevelWBS), TopLevelWBS)) * 1.05

I tried this variation which outputted 214 Exactly!   Didn't need the 1.05 or 1.0  maybe it was to create a buffer/padding?

Thank You so much.

=max(aggr(Count(TopLevelWBS), TopLevelWBS))

Technically you don't need 1.05 - it is just for a little better look, leaves some space on the right.

ah, ok that's what I was thinking after I thought about it, adds a little padding to the right, makes sense. I will do that then.

How do I maintain that Max value even if I select values that are smaller? If I hard code it the gauge stays in proper ratio. I tried this but doesn't quite do it. I was able to keep the values for one column in place but the Max gets skewed to the selection vs the true max value.

=max(aggr(Count({1}TopLevelWBS),TopLevelWBS)) *1.05

Ok, I figured it out I have to add the TOTAL.

=max({1} TOTAL aggr(Count({1}TopLevelWBS),TopLevelWBS)) *1.05
