How to set a report to the default max date in M query Parameter value in Power Query or Desktop



I have a task to achieve the report to show always max date or defaut the max date.
I connected in Direct query Mode.

I created M query Paramter to select date in the slicer.

Now, I want to show the report always to the default max date or the slicer should select dynamically or pickup the latest date in the slicer. If, not set the M Query Parameter to pickup the max date in query editor.

I want to show the data in the report always to max date without passing the value in M Query Parameter from Power Bi desktop Date slicer

Thanks for the reply. 

But, I don't see the Relative Date below.



The column used for Bind to Parameter. Because of this I don't see the RelativeDate.

If this is important to you please consider voting for an existing idea or raising a new one at


This M Query parameter I am calling in Main query and which I connected in Direct Query Mode the main table.
There is a Distinct table loaded to the Date and from that table I am able Bind to Parameter which I created in M Query Parameter (ExtractDate).
Note: "The M Query Parameter" values is converted in Main query as below.
select * from table name
cast(ExtractDate as date) = '"&Date.ToText(Date.From(ExtractDate),"yyyy-MM-dd")&"'

like this I am passing the values to the main query.


Now, the distinct date table column bound to a M Query Parameter, which I am using a slicer in Power Bi Desktop. Since, the value passing as "Text" type to the main query, I am not getting the Relative Date option.

Please help me on this.

Note: I am not sure how to vote

The table where you provide the list of TEXT values for slicer, how does it work? Maybe you could have another column there, that will translate text to date value, and then you will be able to select a latest date?

Use the Filter Pane.  It has Relative Date filters.
