Date field with unwanted time

Hello

 

I am a beginner of Power BI and am maybe asking a silly question.

I am creating a very simple list type report on which there is a date field. Even though I just choose "Date" (without time) for the field, when I export the report in csv format, the unwanted time is added like 00:00:00 following the date. I saw a similar post from more than a year ago

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Date-field-displaying-time/m-p/963405#M461675

 

Has this been fixed or is there any solution/workaround to it?

Please advise.

Thank you!

@anada1124 , Check that data type is date and format does and have time.

 

Second way is have text column using format and use that

 

format([Date], "mm/dd/yyyy")

Thank you for your advice.

The data type is actually "Date" (without Time) and the format is "yyyy/mm/dd" but the field is exported like "2021-06-09 00:00:00".

I assume I have to use your 2nd solution.
