How to create Date column using M language

Hi,

I have a Data Source that contains YEAR, MONTH columns but there is no DAY column.

Capture 1.PNG

I wanted to create a DATE column using Query Editor/M language:

1. Add new column

2.Populate it with Dates by using 1 as DAY for all the rows in the table.

 

End result Should be like : 2018/1/1 (Year/Month/Day)

 

Any help on this much appreciated, thanks in advance !

Hi everyone,

I do have the same problem but face further issues here.

Following your instructions, my output still shows an "Error".

 

= Table.AddColumn(AddCol_Day, "Date", each #date( [Year], [Month],1))

 

Columns Year and Month are formatted as Int64.Type.

Any hints?
