  • 1.  Date column format error

    Hi everyone,

    While trying to import data source from excel, as of the attached data. When ever import the data to the power bi is presents this error message:

    DataFormat.Error: We couldn't parse the input provided as a Date value.

    Here is what I have tried:
    • I have changed the data type using locale with data types of English(UK) sample: 29/03/2022 and English(US) sample: 03/29/2022, none helped.
    • I have also, splitted the column to three columns and remerged, and still not working.
    Only part of the data (where the ProductKey = 2494), is showing the error.

    Any help.

    Thank you in advance.

    Em fevereiro de 2021, o mês foi até o dia 28, e no seu arquivo tem uma data que foi até o dia 29.

    I believe that is because 2/29/2021 is not a valid date.  2021 was not a leap year, therefore, the 28th was the last day of the month.
