Iterating trough items with steps of 500 items

Hi,

 

i am in a situation where i need to create a loop 

for example i know i have 2579 items now i want to have a table autogenerated because the number can also be 3200 or more.

in the table there should be 0,500,1000,1500,2000 2500 as when i devide 2579 with 500 it is 5 times. in case of 3200 i need to iterate 6 times 500.

 

Now i need this in a table as i need the values somewhere else.

 

does somebody have a solution for this.

 

thanks in advance.

You can reference a calculated table as below.

 

Number Table = 
FILTER (
    SELECTCOLUMNS (
        FILTER (
            ADDCOLUMNS (
                CALENDAR ( "1970-01-01", "2020-12-31" ),
                "daysSince 1970-01-01", DATEDIFF ( "1970-01-01", [Date], DAY )
            ),
            MOD ( [daysSince 1970-01-01], 500 ) = 0
        ),
        "num", [daysSince 1970-01-01]
    ),
    //[num] <= COUNTROWS ( YourTable )
    [num] <=2579
)

@PaulKeijzers

What do you mean "doesn't work"? Any error?

Check the calculated table in the attached pbix.
