Date Convert problem

hey,

 

i have an problem to convert simple text to a date since today, and i dont know why. (it worked till yesterday)

 

i have the following rows / dax formula:

 

 

This is the row i need to convert. If i change the format, i get an error. (text to date not possible)

 

So, i used these formulas to extract part of the dates and put it together.

 

Jahr = PATHITEM(SUBSTITUTE(StandardVerkauf[Verkaufsvorgang.Vorgangsdatum];"-";"|");1)

 

Monat = PATHITEM(SUBSTITUTE(StandardVerkauf[Verkaufsvorgang.Vorgangsdatum];"-";"|");2)

 

Datum = StandardVerkauf[Monat] & "." & StandardVerkauf[Jahr]

 

Jahr = Year, Monat = Month, Datum = Date (translation)

 

 

This results in this

 

 

 

The row Datum is set to Date Format and it worked perfectly till today. When i now update / refreseh my dataset, i get the following error for the column Datum.

 

 

Translation: The Value "." of type text can not be converted to the type date.

 

Same if i try to convert only the year.

 

Datum = StandardVerkauf[Jahr]

 

Same error.

 

Can someone help me please? 🙂

Re: Date Convert problem

Hi @DennisJung,

 

You can use power query date functions to split the date column, add a custom column to store them.

Sample:

    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Renamed Columns", "Year", each Date.Year([Created])), 
    #"Added Custom1" = Table.AddColumn(#"Added Custom", "YearMonth", each Date.ToText([Created],"yyyy.MM"))

Date functions

Date.ToText
