Hi,

Why should the answer be 5000 and 7000?  Also, why not create a calculated column formula in DAX?  Why are you trying to do this in Power Query?

Because I create a report with the cost to date and with the cost in the last month.

And I need it in Power query instead of DAX, because later this column has relationships with another column of other data, and with Dax doesn't work right.

Relationships are created in the Data model (not in Power Query) so we can create a calculated column formula.  I still do not understand how you arived at 5000 and 7000 in column 3.
