Date format error

I have created the below DAX; 

New Downloads Title = var latest = LASTDATE('iOS - All App Units'[Date]) return "Total Downloads from " & latest

Griffy_0-1594040378976.png

If i do this in it's own dax it shows the below;

iOS Latest Date = LASTDATE('iOS - All App Units'[Date])

Griffy_1-1594040392329.png

 

As you can see, I would like it in GMT format no the output from the first DAX statment.

 

 

Thanks

Thanks Greg!

 

New Downloads Title =
var latest = FORMAT(LASTDATE('iOS - All App Units'[Date]),"DD/MM/YY")
return
"Total Downloads from " & latest

That worked
