@aghonaim In power bi desktop go to query editor -> right click your parameter and ensure Enable Load is checked. Then Parameters are just like any other query in Power BI Desktop and so you can reference them in DAX expressions.

Hi @aghonaim,

In Power BI Desktop, we are not able to use Parameters in calculated columns.  Regarding to this issue, you can vote it in the following existing idea.
