Expression.Error: Cannot parse the entry specified for a Time value.


In the power query editor I have changed the type of a column from Text into Time, so far so good. But when I update the data in power bi desktop one query gives an error. The error is Expression.Error:  Cannot parse the entry specified for a Time value.


Can someone explain what went wrong and how to solve?




Not applicable

Hi , @rnowee


I had a mistake like that.

I was helped to enter the query editor and click "Update all" and apply, after that it will see the date format, not the text.

HI @rnowee,


I'd like to suggest you double check your records to confirm these date/time value are in valid date/time range.(power bi service will check date/time values)
