DAX LastDate Help

I have a dataset table that has multiple columns, however, one column is titled "runtime" which contains a date like: 

 

6/14/2017  11:13:52 AM

 

All of the rows in that table have the same date/time.   I'm trying to create a new measure to show the last runtime of the file that was imported.    When I try this I get the last day of the year:

 

Updated = LASTDATE('2017FinancialData'[Runtime].[Date])

 

I'm obvioulsy not using that function correctly; however, any ideas on the best approach to get it?

My bad. You'd need to remove .[Date] part.

 

To get date portion only try using.

=DATEVALUE(MAX('2017FinancialData'[Runtime]))

 

EDIT: LASTDATE function works much the same way.

Try...

Updated = MAX('2017FinancialData'[Runtime].[Date])

Same result....;-(
