How to replace the text with last week date in Power Query

Hey! I'm now trying to replace the text with last week date in power query, but failed. (see below exact changes I made)

 

Any thoughts? Thanks!

 

That's what I originally used to replace the text with today date. 

 

Date.ToText(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()))

Here is what I tried to replace with last week date, but failed 

 

Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow())),-7)

Hi @naoyixue1 ,

 

I think -7 should in Date.AddDays function. Please try code as below.

= Table.ReplaceValue(#"Filtered Rows3","Past",Date.ToText(Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()),-7)),Replacer.ReplaceValue,{"Week"})

Result is as below.

I think you have an extra ')' in your new line.

Date.ToText(Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow())),-7)
