Date Time problem

Dear all, 

 

I'm facing a problem now as I input the data from Excel, the column "ATA" shows as Text instead of Date/Time (as "ATD) and cannot be shown as Date/Time.

But from Excel this two columns are in the same format and can even do calculations. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

The problem with the column ATA is, it has ":"  at the end, do the following.
Go to: Transform > Extract > Text Before Delimiter and choose the options as I have done

Then change the column type to Date/Time.
Done

@javieezy Can you share the file or at least the code from Advanced Editor in Power Query Editor? Almost looks like the first column is getting truncated for some reason.
