Power Query Calendar Other
Every Power BI model needs a Calendar so we’ve built one for you! In the Power Query applied steps you can change 3 things (make sure you have your Power Query formula bar turned on via View>Formula Bar)

  1. The Month Number for the end of your reporting year (i.e 6 for June year end, 12 for December)
  2. The Start Date for your calendar (e.g. 1st July 2019 )
  3. The End Date for your calendar (e.g. 30th June 2022)

Then the Calendar builds for you including a Fiscal Year, Fiscal Month number, month sequence, day of week – all sorts of goodness.

You can then simply Right Click on the Calendar in the query pane, copy it and paste it to another file.
