Can't see columns as date for source SSAS tabluar cube live connection

Hi,

I'm connecting the Power BI report to a tabular cube, live conn, and we have some columns defined as date in the cube but in PPower BI report are shown as text.

 

Is there a solution to see as date also in Power BI? 

In the cube:

In Power BI:

salexa_0-1636369900112.png

 

Thanks,

Irina

@salexa , Can you check if this shows it as text in the column tools or only the symbol is missing. I have doubts about the custom format. is happening with default format too

Hi,

 

You are right, only the symbol is missing. I've test it with slicer and it has the date options.

 

Thanks!

Hi @salexa ,

 

Is the DATE column in cube in dd/mm/yyyy or some similar format or is it a UNIX Timestamp date or a date value having timezone appended to it like 21/11/2021 UTC ?

 

It will be nice to have some screesnhot around data values that you see in Cube and in Power BI not just data-type.

 

Thanks,

Pragati
