Create A Date Table

During report creation in Power BI, a common business requirement is to make calculations based on date and time. Organisations want to know how their business is doing over months, quarters, fiscal years, and so on. For this reason, it is crucial that these time-oriented values are formatted correctly.

For example, suppose that you are developing reports for the Sales team at your organisation. The database contains tables for sales, orders, products, and more.
