Help splitting this column

Sample.jpg

 

I need to split this by dd/mm/yyyy (UK date format).

I'm in need of an DAX formula that'll extract the date portion (02022024) of the Source Name column and then return the result in the above manner. 

If someone can guide me in this, it'll be wonderful. I'm very raw with DAX.

Hi @Shak1254,

 

Can you please try this:

 

 

Date =
VAR DatePosition =
    LEN ( Files[FileName] ) - LEN ( "ddmmyyyy" )
        - LEN ( ".xlsx" ) + 1
VAR DateString =
    MID ( Files[FileName], DatePosition, 8 )
RETURN
    FORMAT (
        DATE ( RIGHT ( DateString, 4 ), MID ( DateString, 3, 2 ), LEFT ( DateString, 2 ) ),
        "dd/mm/yyyy"
    )
