Problem Calculating Date Diff from Date formatted DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM

Hi Everyone, i have a problem that i just cant seem to solve and im certain there is a simple alternative out there. I have a column (Example below) that has a cell formatted DD/MM/YYYY Hours:Minutes and i am trying to create a counter that breaks the days left into a format below, i can do it easily on Excel but trying to convert it to Power BI is a struggle. 

 

I have used the Date Diff to calculate the difference in days, but i cant seem to bring it into one column? and include both hours, minutes and days. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Mark, 

 

Data example and output below, i have achieved it on Excel with the following but struggling with the Power BI query. i basically want to compare the Target Completion Date with TODAY() or NOW() to get an output in a format below

 

=INT(J2-NOW())&" Days "&HOUR(MOD(J2-$N$1,1))&" Hours "&MINUTE(MOD(J2-$N$1,1))&" minutes "

 

Target Completion Date Target Completion Date in days
21/02/2023 08:15 -1 Days 15 Hours 16 minutes
21/02/2023 09:04 -1 Days 16 Hours 6 minutes
21/02/2023 07:54 -1 Days 14 Hours 56 minutes
21/02/2023 15:07 -1 Days 22 Hours 9 minutes

@Steve_luck22 Sorry, having trouble following, can you post sample data as text and expected output?
Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

Also, please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.
