I have a query that i would like to use multiple times for different people.

I just need to change one case in the query to fit to the need of the person.

To make it easier i would like to pass a variable in a query to change that case.

 

Here's what i have :

1. Here is the case part that needs to be changed

Hi, @iLoveTea ;

According my understand, you could create a dynamic parameter.

Then add a new step.

 

= Table.SelectColumns(#"Added Custom",Parameter3)

the final result:

if not right, Can you share the scene you want? I'm a little unclear where your Code Red.

Hello, 
Your solution worked for me.
I now have an error when using the column in a vizualisation because it is named dynamically.

Here is a screenshot showing the error :
