I have only a column containing the day of invoice  (1,2,3, ... 31)

How can I load date column compose from folder name and Day field?

When you load the file you can use fileDir() function to get the filepath. On this apply string functions like keepchar() to keep only year and month to get Year and month.

Next use date#() to for converting the string and day field into a date field.
