Custom date FORMAT measure/column in Direct query mode

Dear All,

 

is there any possibilities to write a DAX formula for Custom india date format like dd-mm-yyyy in a direct query mode?

 

1.In Calculated column FORMAT is not support in direct query mode

2.In Measure couldn't call the date column from the table.

Like Measure=FORMAT('Table1'[Created_Date],"dd-mm-yyyy")

 

Kindly please help me out on this.

 

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @BhaveshPatel

 

Thank you so much for your Idea.

The below calculated column worked fine.

 

Calculated Column = DAY('Table1'[Creation_Date]) & "/" & MONTH('Table1'[Creation_Date]) & "/" & YEAR('Table1'[Creation_Date])

You can try splitting your date column in query editor and then using the merge columns feature, combine as per the indian date format. "dd-mm-yyyy". 

 

In case, this step may not be supported then you can use combination of LEFT, RIGHT functions to extract dd, mm, yyyy and then concatenate all together.

 

 

 

Thanks
