Conversion of date (data type) to text through dax expression

Hi,

 

I need to convert from date to text/string format through dax expression/measure and i tried two functions datevalue and format but these arent working.

Below is the measure for your reference : 

Measure = IF(ISBLANK(COUNT(TABLENAME(COLUMNNAME))=0,"CALLS",)),COUNT(TABLE(COLUMN NAME(WHICH IS IN DATE FORMAT))

 

Can someone please help me with this.

Thanks in advance

HI @Rup10,

I think you can try to use the format function will help for text conversion.

In addition, what type of format you wanted? If you are confused about the coding formula, can you please share more detailed information to help us clarify your requirement?
