Hi @RichaBansal 

 

With that exact data no, but if the Start and End Columns were formated as dates, then yes.

 

  • Add a custom column  to create month amount between dates

 

Date.Year([End])*12+Date.Month([End])-Date.Year([Start])*12-Date.Month([Start])​

 

  • Create a column to calculate Monthly Amount

 

[Amount]/ [Custom]​

 

  • Create another column called "Intervals" 

 

List.Numbers(1,[Custom])​

 

  • Then add another to create the months 

 

Date.StartOfMonth(
  Date.AddMonths(
    [Start],
    [Intervals] -1
  )
))​

 

This should help

I think I missed a step. You will need to expand the list to new rows before adding the last step

Hi Joe,

 

The start and end are dates. I got the list of numbers, but the Last column shows error.

Worked like a charm 🙂

Thank you Joe. Have a pleasant day.

This will work only in case when Start and End are defined as dates. @RichaBansal, let us know if input Start and End are dates or just text "Jan" and "April"

@RichaBansal, in case you have input stored as text, try this:
