How to insert "Date Modified" to "Content" binary in Power Query?

 

I have loaded multiple files in Power Query. However, when I expand the content column, the "Date Modified" column is not carried over because it is not part of the file contents. I read in another post that it might be possible through "Add Custom Column," but I don't know what the function should look like. Does anyone know how I can transfer the information into my content?

Ok, I figured it out myself, and it's really simple. For those who are interested:

  1. Simply expand the Content table and load the necessary sheets.
  2. Now the content of the tables will open, but without the Date Created column.
  3. To add this column, you need to go to the "Applied Steps" pane on the right side. Power Query has added several entries there. You might need to experiment a bit and delete 1-2 entries, then go back to the overview, and all data from the Content will load, including the Date Created column.
