@baronraghu_3011 what i understand you want to go back 60 days from today excluding weekends. if this is what you want then you can create a below calc column in your main date table

Workdays = IF(OR(WEEKDAY('Calendar'[Date])=1, WEEKDAY('Calendar'[Date])=7),0,1)
Rank1 = RANKX(FILTER(FILTER('Calendar','Calendar'[Date]<TODAY()),'Calendar'[Workdays]=1),'Calendar'[Date])

you can now apply filters in your table.

you can refer to below link as well

Can it be done in power query considering weekends as well as holiday

Super User

Will you be considering bank holidays as well or only excluding Saurdays and Sundays? If the former, you need a list of the holidays
