Different regional configuration Power BI Desktop - Power BI Service

Hi everyone,


Until less than 48 hours ago we have never had this problem.

Overnight, Power BI Service has changed its regional settings, let me explain. We are in Spain, we use the € as currency, the date format dd/mm/yyyy and the "." as thousands separator, while the "," is used to separate the integer part from the decimal part.

In Power BI Desktop, the files are in the correct locale for us, they are displayed correctly. The problem has arisen once these .pbix have been published to Power BI Service. Here is an example:


Power BI Service:






Power BI Desktop:






Any solution?

This did not happen less than 48 hours ago and Power BI Service looked exactly the same as in Power BI Desktop.

Thank you very much for your help.

The date format on all Power BI Service reports has changed to US format for all users over the weekend.
