Date table is not filtering the related table

Hi all,
 
I have created the date Table and related the date column of date table to dateofpurchase column of Purchase table.
And marked Date as Date table and data type of the date column and dateofpurchase column to Date.
But when i try to filter the data from dateofpurchase column ,date column in date table is dispalying the blank values even though both the tables are related.
I am not getting what step I have missed out.

Kindly help on this.
 
Thanks

Couple possibilities. One, check your filter direction on your relationship to make sure it is the right direction. Second possibility is that one of your dates contains time stamps that are other than midnight. True date only columns have a time component that is 0, which is midnight but if your dates in your fact table have a real time component other than midnight, they won't match up.

Hi All,
 
Thanks for the reply I have used Crossfiltering and changed the Data type of the Dateofpurchase from Date/Time to Date even though I am not getting the data filtered.
Because I  have data in Dateofpurchase column like 19-01-2017 15:40:05,19-01-2017 15:44:31 where as Data of my date table has 19-01-2017 00:00:00.
So when I try to filter the data using the date table even after changing the datatype from date/time to date its not happening.
Is there any solution to handle the time.

Thanks

Hi vannikannan ,

 

After you change Date/Time to Date type, can you build relationship between the two tables? If still can't, you may create a calculate column use 

Result = Format(Table[Column],"MMYY")

Or 

Result = Date(Table[Column])

Hi vannikannan,

 

As mentioned above, this may caused by something wrong with your table relationship. Could you share some screenshots of your table structure and relationship?

@Anonymous Please use "Cross Filter Direction" as "Both" in your Data Model

I would never have guessed that date table will not match with Date/Time column in Fact table if time is other then midnight. I was banging my head against the wall for some time trying to figure out what the hell is wrong.

 

Thank You!
