Hi @avioti,

 

Current power bi not contains any script to auto generate the holiday calendar table.

 

You should get a holiday list first, for example:

1. Find out a public holiday list from web, import it to power bi.

2. Create a calendar table and build the relationship.

DateTable = ADDCOLUMNS(CALENDAR(DATE(2015,1,1),TODAY()),"Year",FORMAT([Date],"yyyy"),"Month",FORMAT([Date],"mmmm"),"Quarter",FORMAT([Date],"q"),"Week",WEEKNUM([Date],1),"Day Of Week",FORMAT([Date],"dddd"))

 

3. Add calculated column to check relationship.(holiday = normal holiday + public holiday)

Holiday Tag = IF(ISBLANK(RELATED(Holiday[Federal holiday]))=FALSE(),RELATED(Holiday[Federal holiday]),if([Day Of Week]="Saturday"||[Day Of Week]="Sunday",[Day Of Week],BLANK()))

BTW, you can also share your requirement to ideas.

You can find a list with more than 10 sources of public holidays all over the world in the post below. The list also contains some DimDate tables very detailed, especially for USA holidays.

I recommend just finding a web based source, based on your country, where you can pull in a table of dates that are holidays and then merge this with your existing date table.
