Changing Date to Date/time format?

Hi all: Good day! I am getting data from a database table. There are 3 date columns. They are in date with time and TMZ format. I changed the column type to “Date” to only show date. Now need to show the time also. When I go to Power Query & try to change to Date/time, it shows there in the query editor- but not on the ‘Data view’ or ‘Report’ [my ‘Table’ visual]- remains same as before with only Date! [yes, I did ‘Apply & Close’!].

I found only solution is to start from beginning in Power query: removing all steps. Then from original date format-> change to date/time. But there should be an efficient way than this?

Any help is much appreciated! 🙂

@sohananahid - So when you originally set the field to date/time and applied, did you go to the column in your Report or Data view in Desktop and in Column Tools switch it to be date/time instead of date?
