Filter sharepoint list from source

Hi all,

Is there a way to filter the data thats pulled from source (a sharepoint list) by date, i only want the last 6 months, but there is years of history in the list and its crashing my report due to its size.


= Source{[Id="dp67579c-3ea7-4f8c-a501-f8528r3fbb5a"]}[Items]


I currently have this but i wondered if i could put a date parameter at this stage rather than pulling it all in and then filtering it?


Is this possible?


Really appreciate any tips

Hi @the_606 

The term for this behaviour is query folding.

Whether it's possible or not depends on the source.  I don't use Sharepoint lists much but this link suggests it may be possible: 


In any case this is a Power Query function rather than DAX, so you may get a better answer in this forum:
