I was trying to create a new calculated column called Period that joins the Month Number of Year and Calendar Year columns together by writing the following dax formula
COMBINEVALUES("0", dimCalendar[CalendarYear], dimCalendar[MonthNumberOfYear])
However, I was not able to find the COMBINEVALUES function in the drop down menu and got errors for the above expression.
Any idea why this particular function isn't available in powerpivot?
Thanks in advance.

I believe that's a relatively new function so may not have made its way into your version of Excel. Can you just do:
Column = dimCalendar[CalendarYear] & "0" & dimCalendar[MonthNumberOfYear]
Proud to be a Datanaut!
COMBINEVALUES ( ) is a text function, So change your [CalendarYear] & [MonthNumberOfYear] to text.
I believe you're trying to achieve '201805' as a period id, correct?
If that is the case, you could do something like:
Column = Table4[Year]*100+Table4[Month]
Yes this worked perfectly! Thank you
Yes that was what I intended to do. Thanks for your help!
