Different Date Being reported between Power BI and Power BI Desktop on the same machine

Different Date Being reported between Power BI and Power BI Desktop on the same machine.

I'd send screenshots but the photos button isn't working on the forum rich text box.

Re: Different Date Being reported between Power BI and Power BI Desktop on the same machine

@slavs,

 

You may check if it is caused by UTC time zone.

Re: Different Date Being reported between Power BI and Power BI Desktop on the same machine

Hi @v-chuncz-msft,

 

Thanks for your help, I've tried so many ways to get around this. It also looks like my custom column is not refreshing.

I have to manual publish it each morning to get it to update the date.

 

I have been using the formula below to calculate the date.

DateTime.Date(DateTime.AddZone(DateTime.LocalNow(),10))

 

My understanding is that DateTime.LocalNow() would yield UTC time as my datasource is an Azure SQL database.

 

Wouldn't these formula (mine and the one in the link you provided) fail for daylight saving?

 

I have also tried Marcel Beug's solution to account for daylight savings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrEyYTBnYfU&t=209s

but it does not look like I can Invoke a custom function when using direct query.

 

Cheers,

 

Rob
