How to get the latest entry from a lookup table?

New Member

I'm creating a chart which includes the use of a lookup table file, but I only want it to pull up the latest entry for a field. How would I do this? So far I just have this:

| lookup Packaging_User_Targets.csv Username as username OUTPUT Daily_Individual_Goal as Target
| fields username Completed Target
