This tutorial explains how to get a value from cell on sheet and use it in Power Query.

Obviously, this can only be used in Excel - not in Power BI.

The M language can´t reference the cell address, like "C2", but can reference inserted table. This table can have one row with the value you need.

Pokud chceme tedy hodnotu z této buňky použít např. do nového sloupce, bude zápis vlastního sloupce takto:

  • Table.Column(Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table1"]}[Content], "nice_column")

The red parts, name of table and name of column, should be replaced by your table and column name.

This is how the new column looks like:

Click on the double sided row and see the result:

This value can be used anywhere in Power Query - for example for source file path definition.
