Power BI Report Embedded in PowerPoint - Change Date Format



First time using the PowerPoint Intergation for Power BI Reports 😊


I've successfully embedded the various reports I need into PowerPoint but the data format isn't showing as UK date format. I can't seem to find where I'd need to change the date format in the options.




Date format is correct on Power BI but changes to the above format when embedded into PowerPoint.


Any help would be appreciated 😊

Found the answer, don't use Short Date, but actually select the format you want. Works ok now for me.

I have also just started using it, and noticed the same issue. If I check the date formats in PBI Desktop, and also the same report online, they are UK format, but in Powerpoint show with the month first???

Hi @Idrissshatila 


Computer and Power BI settings are all set to UK regional settings, not sure how to check settings within PowerPoint as thats the only place its defaulting to different date format
