Sometimes when I create a visualization in Power BI desktop with date and sales data, it automatical sets it up with the date hierarchy. I had one visualization set up this way and then added a new data base that had dates in it. I used the date to manage the relationships. Now my visualization has changed so that the hierarchy option on the date is no longer available. What do I need to do to change it back again?
Make sure your column is definitely datetime type and format. When you drag the item to the axis you should have additional settings in the area where you dropped your date. Also in the painter settings for the visual, choose continuous rather than categorical on the axis settings.
I have the same issue where I cannot drill down through the date, it is set as date/time with the format as m/d/yyyy. The same format as I have for another dashboard (different data source) where the drill down works. What am I missing?
Sorry if doing this wrong as this is my first time here .
Indeed the problem appears when you add the date column to a relationship. Assume I had a table called "theTable" with a date column called "DateCol". My solution was to create a new calculated column "DateCol2 = [theTable]DateCol" and then replace DateCol with DateCol2. Using DateCol2 I got my hierarchy back.
