Date Issue - BI Changing Date Value

I am having a date issue that I am unable to resolve so I thought I would reach out for help.

 

Background:

  • Form - PowerApp
  • Datasource - SharePoint List
  • PowerBI - Desktop version

Basically I have a form setup with various date fields.  The date from the form shows up accurately on the SharePoint list when submitted.  Also, when I export the SharePoint list to Excel, everything works fine.  Now for the issue.  When I pull in the data to PowerBI (from SharePoint list), all my dates are showing up the day prior.  Example 7/23 in the sharepoint list will show up as 7/22 in PowerBI.  

 

I have went through all the transformations in the query editor / advanced editor.  I can't seem to find anything that is converting the date.  The field type in SharePoint is just a Date/Time field that is set to show date only.

 

I know there are some DAX commands I can probably use and create new columns to add 1 day, but I would rather the data just pull in correctly rather than have a several duplicate fields.

 

Any advice?

 

Thanks!

Hi  @denney103184 ,

In these threads, they talked about it for the following reasons:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/SharePoint-date-differs-from-Power-BI-date/td-p/13856

One possible cause is :

dates in the summer were changing to the previous day because an hour was being taken off due to daylight saving

Solution:

set the imported column to data type timezone and create a new calculated column based on it with a data type date;

 

Another may be: ApiVersion

Solution : Change to ApiVersion14

 

You can also try the following:

1. Enter the Power query and select the date column.

2. Select the date columns, Right Click --Change Type - Using Locale.

3. Select in Data Type: Date and Set the Locale (in your case you can use English - United States).

All,

 

Thanks for the feedback on this topic.  It helped steer me in the right direction.  I did find that in the regional settings of SharePoint my timezone was different than PowerBI.  I changed it to my actual time zone in SharePoint and that solved the issue.  PowerBI is now bringing in the correct date.
