    Hello Folks!


    I'm using a fucntion to make the correction of 3 columns on my fact table


    fxPlateCorrections = (Start as date,End as date,Plate as text)=>



    Source= #"goals by plate",

       Custom1 = Table.SelectRows(Source, each Start >=  [Date Start]  and End <= [Date End]  and [original_plate] = Plate)




    How far as I know it's not possible to include a Table.Buffer when you call a function, so where should I include the Table.Buffer?


    1. Table.Buffer(Table.SelectRows(...
    2. Table.SelectRows(Table.Buffer(....
    3. Source= Table.Buffer(#"goals by plate"),

    Hi @Gustavo Leo,

    If you want to load the full #"goals by plate" table into memory
    Source= Table.Buffer(#"goals by plate") is the way to do it.

    Quick note.
    Load the smallest possible table into memory so if that contains more columns or rows than you actually require, remove them before you buffer.

    I hope this is helpful
