In my table date format is in decimal format as shown: 20160327

How can change into the correct format as 03/27/2017 in Power Bi Desktop?

Can any one help me?

@akhil5656,

 

You may add a custom column in Query Editor.

Date.ToText(
#date(
Value.FromText(Text.Start(Text.From([Column1]),4))
, Value.FromText(Text.Range(Text.From([Column1]),4,2))
, Value.FromText(Text.End(Text.From([Column1]),2))
)
, "MM/dd/yyyy"
)
