Help using a parameter to return a specific value from a database


I am a novice to Power BI and was wondering if someone could give me some guidance. I'm trying to figure out how to use a parameter to pull back certain values on a specific date. For example, I would like my parameter for 2018-12-31, and when I refresh my database I only want it to return that information. Is that possible?


Any help is appreciated!


thank you!

Hi @Slimage ,


Do you mean Query Parameter? If so, please refer to this blog to specify a query list as parameter values.
