You didn't say what your problem was exactly, but if you have dates with a timezone, you might want to do this:
Remove any "Changed Type" step.

Click on the date icon for the field and click the last option - Using Locale.

Change your dialog box to show date time zone and then pick your country.

After you have done that, you can change the type again to just a date, or datetime, or leave it datetimezone, your call, but this next step make sure you tell it to add a new step, not replace what you just did. In the right-hand Query Steps you will have two Change Types in sequence.

 

If that isn't the issue, then you need to tell us what the actual problem is.
