Hello @Ganesh08 

Is it possible for you to share the type of data you have added.


Hello, Its something this like this and I created it, using Create table option in power bi

Thank you for sharing the data @Ganesh08 

I guess you wont be able to change Name and Type but Month can be converted to Numeric Value. 

have you tried using Transform Option ? 

Power Query Editor -> Transform -> Data Type -> Whole number 

Or from Power BI Desktop -> Data View -> Select the column you want to change -> Column Tools -> Format

@JadhavVarsha_13 Yes, I have tried it all and it shows you dont have this option for modification.
