Duration wrongly converted to Date-Time type

I am getting data from an excel file which include a column which shows duration as mm:ss:ms

But when I import the data to Power BI Desktop with Power Quey, it converts this column to date/time format, like the picture below:

I don't know how can I solve this issue.

 

Any idea?

PowerBI does not currently support milliseconds in date time datatype. I solved the problems like follow:

 

convert the excel doc to general, load it into PowerBI, and multiply the value by 86400 to get the total number of seconds.
