Guys I have the following problem.
I need to identify if the date of the record is the earliest date of the group.
The idea is NOT return an aggregation table, the idea is return all the records but in a custom column I want to identify if the date of the record is the earliest of the group. If true, then the record of the column will receive a text like "Most Updated record", otherwise, "Discontinued".

Below a simplification of the table where GroupID means foreign key

MyTable
  • Id
  • GroupID
  • RecordDate
  • Observations

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN
