Hi @Pawan 

Maybe you can transfer data in power query, and change it as datetime type

e.g:

Hi @Pawan 

please try

CONVERT ( LEFT ( 'Table'[HistoryDateOld], 20 ), DATETIME )

It should be 19

Could be. I thought the space counts. Probably not?

Hi @tamerj1  I am getting error like Can't convert value of type text to Datetime

@Pawan 

Seems it is not recognizing the YYYY-MM-DD format. In this case am afraid that it has to be done manually by extracting the year, the month, the day using LEFT and MID functions wrapped by VALUE then using the DATE function to calculate the date out of them. 
on the other hand you can use MID to extract the time wraped with CONVERT - TIME

Then add the time to date like _date + _time

If you do not need all datetime precision anywhere in the model, I suggest to format it in the source.

I don't have database accesss. i am looking for solution in DAX.
