Determine if date is between 2 dates, return value, and turn into query

I have the following two tables:
"WkRng"
Range.PNG

and "AllDates"

File.PNG

 
I am trying to create a new column called "WkNum" in "AllDates" table but while I was successful in using the below to do it in the Data tab, I'm very new to Power BI, and am trying to turn the following into a query so that I can apply it to other similar files:

Week Number = CALCULATE(
VALUES(WkRng[Week]),
FILTER(
'WkRng',
'WkRng'[Start Date]<= EARLIER ('AllDates'[Request date])
&& 'WkRng'[End Date]>= EARLIER ('AllDates'[Request date])))
 
I was able to use the above to create column WkNum in the AllDates table in the Data tab, but I would like to try to use the Query editor so that I can apply this more readily and easily to other similar files. However, I am running into errors trying to use the above in the Custom Column editing box.
 
Again, very new to Power BI and Queries, so your advice is appreciated. I do wish to keep the use of my "WkRng" table, as the ranges are not uniform, even though the first few rows are displayed as such.

Hi ea you can do it like this in the query editor: let Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("Vc7BCcAwDATBXvwOyCfHklyLcf9tBAIhd8957e7dwnyad1Q716sQpahEizX6rzQwnDEYN2MygpGMYiyJ6oI8QCYgF5ANfB/nAQ==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"Request Date" = _t]), AllDates = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Request Date", type date}}), Source2 = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMtM3MtU3MjC0UNJRMtc3hDENlWJ1ooECRgg5CxjTCCpniaQPboaxUmwsAA==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"Start Date" = _t, #"End Date" = _t, Week = _t]), WkRng = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source2,{{"Start Date", type date}, {"End Date", type date}, {"Week", Int64.Type}}), fnGetWeekRow = (dt as date, tbl as table) as table => Table.SelectRows(tbl, each [Start Date] <= dt and [End Date] >= dt), AddedWeek = Table.AddColumn(AllDates, "WeekNum", each fnGetWeekRow([Request Date], WkRng), type table), ExpandedWeekNum = Table.ExpandTableColumn(AddedWeek, "WeekNum", {"Week"}, {"Week"}) in ExpandedWeekNum
