Create A Number Table

Hello everyone,

 

So since there is not a way to get a userinput box I am reverting to creating a table of numbers and having the user select via a slicer (they need to select their salary) and I have not been able to find a quick way to generate a table with numbers (similar to how we generate one for creating a date table). Can anyone help? So again I am just looking for a table like the one below.

 

TABLE

10,000

10,001

10,002

10,003

10,004

.....

1,000,000

Re: Create A Number Table

Hi @moizsherwani,

 

Try a blank query in the Query Editor and paste this in to the advanced editor

 

let
    Source = List.Generate(()=>10000, each _ < 1000000, each _ + 1),
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromList(Source, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error)
in
    #"Converted to Table"

Re: Create A Number Table

I don't recommend creating a DAX calculated table for this, but if you wanted to for fun you could use this:

NumberTable =
VAR MinNumber = 10000
VAR MaxNumber = 1000000
RETURN
    SELECTCOLUMNS (
        CALENDAR ( MinNumber, MaxNumber ),
        "Number", INT ( [Date] )
    )

Re: Create A Number Table

The only way I have figured out so far is to do a Power Query -> New Query -> {10000...1000000}

Re: Create A Number Table

Yes, your solution works perfectly, I am more a DAX fan so was wondering if there was a way to do this in Dax, otherwise your solution is the "BALL"

Re: Create A Number Table

Try this for something a bit different in DAX

 

New Table = SELECTCOLUMNS(CALENDAR(DATE(1927,5,18),DATE(4637,11,26)),"n",int([Date]))
