## Syntax

```
GENERATESERIES(<startValue>, <endValue>[, <incrementValue>])
```

### Parameters

Term | Definition |
---|---|

startValue | The initial value used to generate the sequence. |

endValue | The end value used to generate the sequence. |

incrementValue | (Optional) The increment value of the sequence. When not provided, the default value is 1. |

## Return value

A single column table containing the values of an arithmetic series. The name of the column is Value.

## Remarks

incrementValue must be a positive value.

The sequence stops at the last value that is less than or equal to endValue.

This function is not supported for use in DirectQuery mode when used in calculated columns or row-level security (RLS) rules.
