Hi @Anonymous,

your Enddatum must be first set to text type, then to date type.

Seem like if did not recognize as date . You can create a new date column like

date = date(year(left([Col],4)),month(mid([Col],5,2)),day(right([Col],2)))

Hi @Anonymous 

in the query editor try :

 

Date.From( Text.From( [Enddatum] ) )
