Last Refresh of Data (FACT Table) in Power BI

Hi Experts

 

How can you get he LASR REFRESH of the data not the Report in Power BI - lets assume my Sales FACT table is mem_sale_data and i want to find out when this table was last refreshed as opposed to when the report was last refreshed.

You can do it like this...

let
Source = #table(type table[LastRefresh=datetime], {{DateTime.LocalNow()}}),
    #"Changed Type with Locale" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source, {{"LastRefresh", type datetime}}, "en-US"),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Changed Type with Locale",{{"LastRefresh", type datetimezone}})
in
#"Changed Type"

Hi Jennratten - Does the above tell me when the Report was refreshed? i am after when the Table was refreshed.

Hi @Invesco ,
You can add a table in the power query which will show today's date & time. So when the report is refreshed, this table will show the current date & time.
