Day to Date format

Hi,

 

I have day of the year. I need to populate date from the day. I cant find which date function to use. I converted the data type from number to date, but it returns the previous date. with year as 1900. See sample below. Please help!

 

Day of the yearDate in Power BIActual Date
2817th October 19008th October 2018
2828th october 19009th October 2018

 

 

Thanks in advance.

I haven't really tested this but the DATE function deals with numbers in a way that should help you.

'date calc'[day] is your 281, for example.

 

Column = DATE(2018,1,'date calc'[day])

Try HotChilli's solution first.

 

Microsoft counts date from 1st January 1900. So the 281st day happened to be the day 7th October 1900.

 

This silly hack may work:

Date = 'Table'[Day of the Year]+43103
