Hi All - I have a date time field from a report - in the report from the system it comes into excel format. The date time field displays dates and times but some read as a custom format in excel and when i pull into power query it has an error reading the custom fields anyways around this? Thanks

Hi @112300576 ,

 

Probably I reproduced your error.

Because your Power Query defaults to only recognize the date format of DD/MM/YYYY, but

the date format of the data source you provide is MM/DD/YYYY.

The workaround is to use change type with local.

Data type is Date/Time and locale is English(United States).

And OK.
