Hi @Rup10 ,

 

Based on my researching, the LAG function returns values from a previous row in the table and the CAST function converts an expression from one datatype to another datatype.

 

But actually I'm not sure about your expected output, could please share more detail information to help us clarify your scenario?

 

In case you want the final result as shown below:

3.18.1.RANK.PNG

Please try LOOKUPVALUE() , RANKX() to add columns after adding a Index column in Power Query

3.18.1.INDEX.PNG

CAST =
IF (
    [BOOKED]
        <> LOOKUPVALUE ( 'Table'[BOOKED], 'Table'[Index], [Index] - 1 ),
    1,
    0
)
rankColumn =
RANKX ( 'Table', [BOOKED],, ASC, DENSE )

 

Here is the pbix file.
