Date hierarchy not available

Hi,

 

I have a custom date column "Date" so when i create a relationship between "Date" and another date column which i am getting from DummyDate = calendarauto() then the hierarchy for the custom column "Date" gets lost which currently i am using in a visual and i am not able to filter this visual by year so how can i get the hierarchy and why i lost the hierarchy while i create a relationship.

 

Thanks

Re: Date hierarchy not available

OK, I was able to recreate this. Seems like it depends on how the relationship is configured. See attached PBIX.

Re: Date hierarchy not available

Hi @jatneerjat,

 

I have made a test with based on you description, it do have this issue.

 

Actually, when you create the relationship (Many to one or one to Many) between the tables with Date, only the date in the one side will show date hierarchy. 

 

If you want create the relationship (One to one ) and you want to the date in your fact table show date hierarchy, you could create the relationship like below.

Re: Date hierarchy not available

There was a thread on this earlier, I'll have to try to recreate this. In the meantime, you could create calculated columns with formulas like:

 

Year = YEAR([Date])
Month = MONTH([Date])
MonthName = FORMAT([Date],"mmmm")

Re: Date hierarchy not available

This is marked as solved but since none of the answers solved my issue I am adding my solution to help someone in the future. For me the problem was the Time intelligence check box that was not selected.

 

Go to: File -> Options and settings -> Options -> Data Load -> and select the Time intelligence Auto Date/Time check box.
