Hi @ty_34 ,

 

The reason for this problem is that if a flat file is imported into powerbi, it follows the default date format in the control panel.

Then, you can change Date type like blew code in Power query or change it directly in Control Panel->region.

= Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Year", each Date.Year([#"Date (YYYY-MM-DD)"]), Int64.Type)
