Getting Dates Between Two Dates In Power BI

Imke Feldmann has created an M function to get the set of dates from a start date to an end date at some fixed interval in Power BI:

This function takes 3 parameters:

  1. From- or Start-date
  2. To- or End-date
  3. A selection of ONE of these intervals: Year, Quarter, Month, Week or Day

All dates will be created at the end of the chosen interval: So if you want to analyse events with a duration for example, where you want to transform your data to show one day per (monthly) event, this function generates month-end-dates for every month within the timespan. Please not that if the To-/End-date is within a month, the last element of the list will NOT be that day, but the day of the end of that month.

The default-value for the 3rd parameter is “Day”, so if you omit the specification, the function will return a list of all days in between.
