= Table.TransformColumns(#"Changed Type", {"FL_DATE", each Date.FromText(Text.BeforeDelimiter(_, " "),[Format="M/dd/yyyy"])})

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
