power query to clear inconsistent strings in rows

hi,

ref to "FLT_DATE" column (column-A) in the sample file here

 

kindly advise on how to get rid of the time in the cells under the same column as i found that there are inconsistent i.e. some ending with "00:00" while others end with 12:00:00 AM". 

tks in advc & krgds, -nik

= 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!
