Problem extracting date from datetime field using DAX

When I try to extract the date of a datetime field Tasks[Created Date].[Date] I receive the error

Column reference to 'Created Date' in table 'Tasks' cannot be used with a variation 'Date' because it does not have any.

 

I am sure this is a Date/time field, my dataset has other Date/time fields and the .[Date] part works perfectly on all of them, except for this one. Is this a bug? Do I have to reload the data?

 

Thanks

Hi @Omar_Servin 

Please check the points:

1.If there is a relationship at the field, if it has the relationship of the field e,g one-many, and the field is the (many) field ,  it cannot extract the date.

2.Please make sure the 'Auto date/time for new file' is open on desktop. if the option is not open, it cannot extract the date.

using %.[Date] is for datetime fields. I don't have a lot to go off of, but it looks like you are already coding [Created Date] as a date field and not a datetime field. It's certainly not a bug, but I have found that working with Created Date in Dataverse is somewhat more tricky and sometimes I have to make a calculated column that extracts the date from the Created Date column.
