Hi @lavdeepk ,

 

Your CALENDAR dax function syntax is wrong. You can't directly pass date values. You have to pass dates using DATE function:

 

= CALENDAR (DATE (2020, 12, 31), DATE (2020, 10, 01))

 

Thanks,

Pragati

HI @lavdeepk ,

 

Save your Power BI report --> Close it --> Reopen it --> Try again creating your calendar table.

 

If still there is this issue, share your pbix file.

 

Also, I am hopinh you are on the latest Power BI Desktop update?

 

Thanks,

Pragati

Hi @lavdeepk ,

 

Not sure what is happening at your end. But I see this working correctly at my end:

Try creating a new table and then go to data view and check.
