Help with Power BI

Hello,

I am trying to create a date column using a month column and year column. My formula  is:

=1*(Month_Dataset[[Period]&"01/"&Month_Dataset[year])

 

In the Custom Column box, I am getting the error that Token Comma Expected after "01/,":

=1*(Month_Dataset[[Period]&"01/,"&Month_Dataset[year])

 

When I add the comma, I still get the error. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Heather

Hi @Heather_W_876 !

 

You can use following DAX to create a date column;

 

NewDate = DATE(Month_Dataset[Year], Month_Dataset[Period], "01")
