PowerBI App and web do not show date if formatted using my locale de_DE

Hi,

in the top of my report I want to show the current date in the head area.
Therefore I placed a card visual with follwing measure:

Date1.png

In PowerBI desktop the date is shown correctly following the locale parameter inside the measures formula.
But if I open the report in PowerBI app or the web then the date looks like this:

Date2.png

If I remove the locale parameter from the measures formula, then the date is presented in PowerBI app and also web, but then it is in english.

How can I make the date working correctly in PowerBI app and web formatted with my locale please?

Hi @TM_AC ,

 

Please use "de-DE" instead of "de_DE".

 

Measure = UPPER(FORMAT(TODAY(),"DDD DD. MMM YYYY", "de-DE"))

Hey TM,

After some investigation, the locale parameter you are using ( "de_DE" ) isnt not supported in Power BI service.

Look at below image for some other options
