oData URL filter for last 30 days (today less 30)

Hi Everyone.

Is it possible to filter in the source URL based on a column of document date:

 

something like - = OData.Feed("https://xxxxx.co.za/OData/ODatav4/Company('XXXX')/View?$filter = Posting date gt (now()-30)

 

I want to limit the time it takes to refresh my data, but saying just give me the last 30 days.

 

can anyone help?

Since the Date.ToText returns text, you don't need to wrap it in ".  Please try this instead.

 

= OData.Feed("https://XXXX.co.za:/ODatav4/Company/ValueEntriesPage?$filter=Posting_Date gt " & Date.ToText(Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()),-65), "yyyy-MM-dd") , null, [Implementation="2.0"])

I doubt you can filter the Source URL before importing to power bi. 
Solved: OData filter pass-through - Microsoft Power BI Community

 

For your requirement, I would suggestion you to use incremental refresh to set the refresh range to last 30 days.

Hi Pat. Thanks for the quick response.

I tried that but received : Expression.SyntaxError: Token Comma expected.

 

I have attached below my code - am I missing something?

= OData.Feed("https://XXXX.co.za:/ODatav4/Company/ValueEntriesPage?$filter=Posting_Date gt " & Date.ToText(Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()),-65), "yyyy-MM-dd")") , null, [Implementation="2.0"])

Since the Date.ToText returns text, you don't need to wrap it in ".  Please try this instead.

 

= OData.Feed("https://XXXX.co.za:/ODatav4/Company/ValueEntriesPage?$filter=Posting_Date gt " & Date.ToText(Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()),-65), "yyyy-MM-dd") , null, [Implementation="2.0"])

You can use this expression.  Adapt the date format if you need something different.

 

 OData.Feed("https://xxxxx.co.za/OData/ODatav4/Company('XXXX')/View?$filter= Posting date gt " & Date.ToText(Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()), -30), "yyyy-MM-dd")")
