Help to improve the creation of a table

Hello,

I have created a table with the below code.

It does work as expected, however I am sure I could have done it in a different way, more efficient, probably using lists as I am repeating practically the same thing for many rows, just changing the integers. But I can't figure out how...

 

Could you please help me to understand how this could be modified?

 

Thanks!

Kind regards

Valeria

 

 

let

versions = #table(
type table [Version = Text.Type, Version Text = Text.Type],

{

{"n", Date.ToText(Date.AddMonths(#date(Date.Year(DateTime.LocalNow()),Date.Month(DateTime.LocalNow()),5),-1),"MMMM") & " actuals / " & Date.ToText(Date.AddMonths(#date(Date.Year(DateTime.LocalNow()),Date.Month(DateTime.LocalNow()),5),0),"MMMM") & " forecast"},
{"n - 1", Date.ToText(Date.AddMonths(#date(Date.Year(DateTime.LocalNow()),Date.Month(DateTime.LocalNow()),5),-2),"MMMM") & " actuals / " & Date.ToText(Date.AddMonths(#date(Date.Year(DateTime.LocalNow()),Date.Month(DateTime.LocalNow()),5),-1),"MMMM") & " forecast"},
