ISONORAFTER is a DAX function that returns the last occurrence of a value in a column that occurs after a specific date. In other words, it helps you find the last instance of a specific value after a given date.
The syntax for using the ISONORAFTER function in Power BI is as follows:
ISONORAFTER(❰column❱, ❰value❱, ❰date_column❱)
- `❰column❱`: The column containing the values you want to search.
- `❰value❱`: The value you want to search for.
- `❰date_column❱`: The column containing the dates you want to use for filtering.
Suppose you have a table called Sales that contains the following columns:
You want to find the last sale for a specific product after a given date. To do this, you can use the ISONORAFTER function as follows:
