Inserted Month" = Table.AddColumn(#"Inserted Day Name", "Month", each Date.Month([Date]), Int64.Type), For more ideas for an environmentally-friendly Christmas, read our ultimate guide to a sustainable Christmas, start your eco Christmas here with us.

Ideally, you'll want your reusable advent calendar to last for years to come. With that in mind, then, look for quality and durable materials – as well as robust designs. Make sure you know, too, how you will be displaying it: will it hang from a sturdy string, for example, or is it free-standing? And it's also a good idea to make sure the drawers aren't too flimsy or small, as there's nothing worse than buying a reusable advent calendar that you can't fit anything in!With that in mind, then, we're off to try and choose which of the best reusable advent calendars will be gracing our home for years to come. Now the John Lewis Christmas advert 2023 has landed the countdown is well and truly on. Note that the start date is hard coded as 1/1/2016 and the calendar is set to load 100 days. Below I will show you how to make the start date easier to maintain and the end date automatically set to the current date. Start Date Added Custom1" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type1", "MonthID", each (Date.Year([Date]) - Date.Year(StartDate))*12 + Date.Month([Date])), I simply replaced this code (3 above) with the actual date (1/1/2016 in this case), and renamed the step StartDate. Note there is no equals sign used, just the date entered as 1/1/2016. This new step called StartDate is a hard coded step in the query that stores the required start date as a scalar value. You can tell it is a scalar value because the results pane below the Formula Bar is displaying the scalar value, not a table (1 below). (Note it is possible to use a parameter instead of a custom step, but this would create an additional query – I prefer to have everything embedded in the same master query). However, for those of you looking for a Christmas craft project, we've included some fabric advent calendar kits. And we also have a step-by-step guide and video tutorial to how to make a charming DIY advent calendar of adorable felt booties.

Let’s take a closer look at the best UK eco-friendly advent calendar options, perfect for your green Christmas. Now the calendar is done, it is just a matter of copying the code and saving it somewhere so it can be reused later. I keep mine in Microsoft OneNote and just cut and paste it when needed. Just go to the Advanced Editor, copy the code and paste it somewhere for later. Here is my code below. Feel free to copy mine and use it in another Power Query Calendar Table if you like. // Note there are 2 copies of the calendar table here, one for fin year, one for calendar year Inserted Day Name" = Table.AddColumn(#"Inserted Month Name", "Day Name", each Date.DayOfWeekName([Date]), type text), Just by looking at the UI above (red box), you can see that there is some strange data format returned. You can probably work out this data is in the format DDD:HH:MM:SS. This “duration” format wont work in the next step I am about to show you, so first I needed to extract an integer portion of the duration so it contains just the days. I did this using a function called Duration.Days below.Inserted First Characters" = Table.AddColumn(#"Inserted Day of Week", "MMM", each Text.Start([Month Name], 3), type text), Here is the new code. I also renamed this step to “Length”. You can see in the image below that this is now an integer value.

From beautiful hand-stitched designs to miniature wooden houses, reusable advent calendars will delight kids and grown-ups for years to come. Single-use advent calendars may look new and novel, but they are hard to recycle and promote unsustainable shopping habits we should be moving away from. As well as being something you can treasure rather than throw away after using, a fabric advent calendar allows you to choose bespoke token gifts the recipient will love. Whether favourite chocolates, festive nik naks, mini toys, stationery or even little notes with Christmas activity ideas, there is so much scope for how you can make this a personalised advent calendar. Plus, filling your own advent calendar can often be cheaper than buying one from scratch.

Now of course you need to “know” that this formula exists to be able to use it – but now you know, so you can use it to create your calendar table in power query. At some stage in the future we are all hoping that Microsoft will deliver Intellisense to Power Query ¹. If that ever happens then this type of coding will become a lot easier. Inserted First Characters1" = Table.AddColumn(#"Inserted First Characters", "DDD", each Text.Start([Day Name], 3), type text), Added Custom” = Table.AddColumn(#”Fiscal Source”, “Date ISO8601”, each Date.ToText([Date], “YYYY-MM-DD”)) From the documentation above, I can see that there are no parameters required for this function. So I just added () to the end of the function to return the current date/time. You can see once again that this is a scalar value (not a table) because you can “see” the value below the formula bar. You will be able to choose every item which mean that the person receiving the gift will feel extra special
