Date Format from Calendar table not showing date

Hi,

 

I have added a calendar table Key to my visualisation, it shows cohesive formatting for Month and Quarter but for Year and Day it shows what it seems to be a summed number.

I am not really sure what info could be impacting this so would be happy to give more context if needed.

 

All the best,

Hi @CelsoJ 

It appears you're using the automatically generated date hierarchy. I suggest to create a separate dates table and relate that to your fact.  Attached is a sample DAX calendar table. There are quite a few columns in there but remove those that you don't need by removing them from ADDCOLUMN arguments.

Hi @danextian , I had the calendar table but did not think using the table's columns would work better. Just tried and you're right hahaha. I'd imagine using the Date Key would have been more reliable, how weird huh?

 

Best,

Celso

The automatically created hierarchy aids those who just started with Power BI but as you advance, you'll realize that it isnt actually that helpful.
