You can set a parameter in power query. 

 

let


sqlStatement = "

select *
from Transactions
where CustomerID = " & CustomerID //CustomerID is the name of the parameter

 

,

 

Source= Sql.Database("sqlserver","database",[Query=sqlStatement])

 

in

 

Source

 

 

The parameter can be changed by the user in power bi "edit parameter"

Hi @spuder

Thanks for the reply

 

This is the query which I'm using:

 

DECLARE @return_value int

EXEC @return_value = [dbo].[Stored Procedure] @startdate = &start_date , @enddate = &end_date

SELECT 'Return Value' = @return_value

 

 

It throws error saying Incorrect syntax near &"

 

I need to take the dates as input from the user when opening the report

Hi @Bibek

 

 

I guess there is a little misunderstanding. If you want to execute sql Code (as String) in Power BI you have to insert it into M-Language Code.

 

And then you do not use SQL Variables, but M-Language Variables.

 

M Code would be:

 

let

 

source = Sql.Database("server","database",[Query = select * from Table1 where Columnvalue= " & NAME_OF_PARAMETER])

 

in

 

source
