How can I convert Year-month from text to Date?
I tried: YearMonth_Date = DATE(LEFT(Table[YearMonth], 4), RIGHT(Table[YearMonth], 2), 1) but it's not work
You can refer to the following calculated column:
YearMonth_Date = CONVERT([Year-Month],DATETIME) Month_num=MONTH(CONVERT([Month_hoa]&" "&"1",DATETIME))

=SWITCH([Month Name],"Jan",1,"Feb",2,"Mar",3,"Apr",4,"May",5,"Jun",6,"Jul",7,"Aug",8,"Sep",9,"Oct",10,"Nov",11,"Dec",12,"Invalid Month")
Could you give more of an explanation please? You already have activate date, then Year Month that i'm assuming comes from activate date. It look like you're trying to recreate activate date? I'm not sure what you're trying to do.
Could you give an example output. You may need to use CONVERT() to turn your string into a date format. Let me know and i'll get straight back to you 🙂 good luck
U can simply change text to date format in PQ if that does not work. There are also plenty of solutions to this question online. Please google before posting.
