Use this formula in a custom column

= Date.ToText(Date.AddDays([Date],-25),"MMM")

See the working here - Open a blank query - Home - Advanced Editor - Remove everything from there and paste the below code to test

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMtQ3MtU3MjAyUorVAfPMEDwjfVNkjgkyxwhFClWXkTmCZ4yi0hihMhYA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Date = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Date", type date}}),
    #"Added Custom1" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Month", each Date.ToText(Date.AddDays([Date],-25),"MMM"), type text)
in
    #"Added Custom1"

Hi @ivandgreat ,

 

  • Method1: Add a column in Power Query:
[ 
d=Date.Day([Date]),
f=if d>=26 then [Date] else Date.AddMonths([Date],-1),
m=Text.Start(Date.MonthName(f),3)
][m]

  • Method2: Add a column using DAX:
Month = 
var _m=IF(DAY([Date])>=26, MONTH([Date]), MONTH([Date])-1)
return FORMAT( CONVERT(_m &"/1",DATETIME),"mmm")

Hi @ivandgreat ,

 

I am unsure if you mean the current month is Jun (i.e. now?) or the range at each row.

 

Below solution applied the conditional formula to replicate the column "Expected Month Output"

if it is what you're looking for, please add a custom column and add formula below:

if ([Date]>Date.AddMonths(#date(Date.Year([Date]),Date.Month([Date]),25),-1)) and ([Date]<#date(Date.Year([Date]),Date.Month([Date]),26)) then Date.ToText(Date.AddMonths([Date],-1),"MMM") else Date.ToText([Date],"MMM")

Let me know if this is what you're looking for.

in
    #"Added Custom1"
