Hi @kumarleau,

 

It seems to be that you may mix DAX and Power Query(M). DATEADD function is a DAX function, so it cannot be used in Query Editor. You should use it under Modeling tab like below. Smiley Happy

Apparently you didn't understand the reply.

 

DATEADD is a DAX function. You can't use DAX functions in the query editor.

 

Instead, try Power Query (M) function Date.AddYears

 

Power Query (M) and DAX are 2 completely different languages within Power BI.

Specializing in Power Query Formula Language (M)

Hi,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

let
    Source = Sql.Database("ebi-etl-dev-01", "dbname"),
    dbo_Report_Booking_Live = Source{[Schema="dbo",Item="Report_Booking_Live"]}[Data],
    OpportunityCreatedDate1 = dbo_Report_Booking_Live[OpportunityCreatedDate]
    OpportunityCreatedDate2=DateAdd(opportunityCreatedDate,-1,year)
in
    OpportunityCreatedDate1
