Automatic date input


I get the data from SAP with the following format:

Source = SapBusinessWarehouse.Cubes(................),
#"Added Items" = ..........
{ {Cube.ApplyParameter, "[!V000003]", {#date(2023, 9, 20), #date(2023, 9, 21)}},


First date should be yesterday's date and the second date should be todays date. How can i write m code for having this as an automatic input?

As an example, this works for this month and last month:

YMONTHE = Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Date.Month(DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()))),2,"0") &"." & Number.ToText(Date.Year(DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()))-1),

YMONTHS = Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Date.Month(DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()))),2,"0") & "." & Number.ToText(Date.Year(DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()))),

#"Added Items" = Cube.Transform(.........{
{Cube.ApplyParameter, "[0I_CTH]", {YMONTHE, YMONTHS}},


thanks in advance

Hi @IF ,

Please try:

    Source = SapBusinessWarehouse.Cubes(................),
    Today = DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()),
    Yesterday = Date.AddDays(Today, -1),
    #"Added Items" = ..........
    { {Cube.ApplyParameter, "[!V000003]", {Yesterday, Today}}},

What is the expected date format in SAP?  try this:


{Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()), Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()+#duration(1,0,0,0))}

there are two different formats that i am struggling with:

1. { {Cube.ApplyParameter, "[!V000003]", {#date(2023, 9, 20), #date(2023, 9, 21)}},

  in this case i should be enter the parameter as "2023,9,20"


2.  {Cube.ApplyParameter, "[0I_DN]", {"[GLP].[20231002]", "[GLP].[20231002]"}},

 in this case i should enter the value as "20231002"


I tried this:

Today = DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()),
Yesterday = Date.AddDays(Today, -1),

{Cube.ApplyParameter, "[0I_DAYIN]", {"[Y4FGLTRP].Yesterday", "[Y4FGLTRP].Today"}},


but it didn't work. i need to provide the input in the same way as i provided in the example.


The format that i see when i put the values is: { {Cube.ApplyParameter, "[!V000003]", {#date(2023, 9, 20), #date(2023, 9, 21)}},


in this format. i don't know it helps. I could not try the query yet.


Thanks a lot
