DataFlow columns with complex types

Hi All,

 

Is there a list of Power Query M steps that are supported in dataflows?

At the current time Dataflows seemed enfeebled by what is possible via the web interface.

 

I am trying to add a date column from a Julian date field in my data to a computed enitiy in the dataflow

  #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(Source, "Updated", each Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTimeZone.From("20" & Text.Start(Number.ToText([IMUPMJ]),2) & "-01-01")),Int64.From(Text.End(Number.ToText([IMUPMJ]),3))))

 

but end up with "column with a complex type" warning that stops the data loading, with the "something went wrong" meesage.

 

Does anyone know if there is a documented list of Power Query M steps that are supported in dataflows

 

thanks
