Dates not shown on x-axis

Hey guys

 

I just started out with Power BI so please be gentle.

 

I have a very simple data set with weekly dates.

Now I'd like to visualize that data. And when I do so, that's what I get:

Dates are set to "day". Obviously I don't want to see absolute numbers but the dates I put in. When I model the variable the data type is set to "date" (dd.MM.yyyy).

 

What do I have to show the dates in the original Excel sheet?

 

Thanks for your help in advance!

 

Kevin

@kest This might be a "Type" setting issue based on what you are saying...

Click on the visual, click the paintbrush (formatting) -> x-axis -> Type -> Select categorical instead of Continous

 

Either that, or check edit queries and make sure the data type in the "load" section is also date.
