DAX - Extract Date from TimeStamp (contain date & time)

Dear Experts,

 

Which formula I can use to extract date from time stamp contains date & time?

 

Table looks like this on the table 'Date' [Date]

 

Date

1/1/2018 12:00:00AM

 

DAX being tried: DATE('Date'[Date])  --> no result.


Can brief me any easy fix for this?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Please check what data type of your Date column firstly.

 

If your Date column is Date/Time type in Power BI, you only need to change the Data format to be M/d/yyyy under Modeling.

If your Date column is Text type in Power BI, you could create the measure with the fomula below.

 

Measure 2 = LEFT(MAX('Table2'[Date]),9)

Here is the result.

@v-piga-msft I don't have access for modelling the SQL database.

 

The measure looks legit, I will try on it. Thank you 🙂

try [DateTime].Date

Works for me.

I know this is an old answer, but this is only calling the related/hidden date column which is not really suggested.

This worked for me. Thanks!

Hi,

 

Try this calculated column formula

 

=INT('Date'[Date])

 

Format this column as Date.

Hi Ashish & all experts here,

 

Thanks for all your advice, i guess i have to check on the source of my 'Date' [Date] table column, because in the formula, it has the red underlined.

Hello Hwang, see in the picture below the result.

IMPORTANT use a calculated Column to FORMAT DAX function works fine.

 

sorry the menus are in portuguese but i think you can identify the itens easy

and the date format fuction uses FORMAT(table[field];"mm/dd/yyyy")

 

Good Luck!!!

Hi Dujos,

 

The problem is i don't have access to the modelling tab, because its a company SQL BI cube.

I'm only able to modify the visual and and make DAX measure in the report.

 

I have tried above solution with FORMAT( 'Date'[Date],"dd/mm/yyyy)*1 but it also doesn't provide any result.
