The date import from excel is incorrect.
For example, the dates highlighted in yellow has reverse date and month.
Those date from 1 to 12 will become the month instead of the date.
Eg: 12/10/2020 shown below is actually 10/12/2020 (12th October 2020).
How to correct this date?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The source file you provided has dates in dd/mm/yyyy format. I don't know what you are doing once you get the dates into PBI but if you just select the columns and then right click the column header then Change type -> Using Locale
then choose Date and English (United States)
They should convert properly to your locale.

A) Is what you show in the pic how the data is shown in Excel (looks like it, since it's text)
B) In what format are the dates you are importing from the Excel? It seems Month/Day/Year (you have 10/19/2020 for instance)
C) In what format do you want the output dates?
All this probably has to do with the regional settings in your pbix (File->Options and Settings->Options->Current File->Regional Settings) and/or you machine locale
