Hi Team,

Re: Dynamic data source based on date

Hi @vedansh,

 

You can use query below to find the Excel file with the maximum date in Power BI desktop: 

 

 

let
    Source = Folder.Files("<folder path>"),
    #"Split Column by Delimiter" = Table.SplitColumn(Source, "Name", Splitter.SplitTextByDelimiter(" ", QuoteStyle.Csv), {"Name.1", "Name.2"}),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Split Column by Delimiter",{{"Name.1", type text}, {"Name.2", type text}}),   
    #"Changed Type1" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Table.SplitColumn(#"Changed Type", "Name.2", Splitter.SplitTextByEachDelimiter({"."}, QuoteStyle.Csv, false), {"Name.2.1", "Name.2.2"}),{{"Name.2.1", Int64.Type}, {"Name.2.2", type text}}),
    MaxDte=List.Max(#"Changed Type1"[Name.2.1]),
    FilterRowWithMaxDate=Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type1",each [Name.2.1]=MaxDte)
in
    FilterRowWithMaxDate

Then you can click Binary to extract data from the Excel file.
