Formula for multiple MAX date conditions


I'm trying to create a formula that looks at the MAX date and of the MAX dates it finds (because there could be multiple entries with that date), look at the row with the MAX #'s associated with those MAX dates to check a box. I came up with this and I'm getting an Invalid error

=IF(AND(MAX([Date Only]:[Date Only]), MAX([Text #]:[Text #])), 1, 0)

Thanks in advance!

    What about using a modified date column? When you use a MAX formula on that it will also compare the time so if they're the same date it will go with the result that's the most recent time of that day.

    The problem with Modified Date is it updates ALL the rows when you save the sheet so it turns all the rows to the same modified date/time. I'm using it and copying it to another sheet and locking it when it's added. I've also separated the date and the time because when I do the max of the modified date, it things ALL of them are the most recent if they there are multiple rows with the same date.

    Sorry I meant to say when I don't separate the date and time, it won't look at them separately and checks all the rows with the same dates.
