i opened a table in power Query, the column is date data and comes in as a number field...
when i convert to date it changes it to, 7/8/2452. Obviously wrong. What is the best practice to have PQ recognize this as a Date (year month) , what conversions, etc should i perform. thanks
in PQ, i seperated the text field into 2 separate columns, then rejoined them with a "/" between the 2 parts. I then converted to Date (it works). I then deleted the 2 seperated columns.
I was wondering if there is a more efficient way to do this in PQ
Solved! Go to Solution.
You could have a reference of this similar thread which use M query to convert YYYYMM to date type.
There are two solutions in that thread, you could choose one the more efficient.
