How to convert eight digit yyyymmdd to date using DAX in Power BI

0 votes

I'm trying to convert eight digit yyyymmdd to date format with DAX function.

column = DATE(LEFT(TABLE[COLUMN],4),MID(TABLE[COLUMN],5,2),RIGHT(TABLE[COLUMN],2))

However, I've got an error because of the original column has some records with "00000000", so how can I make a default value with IF statement or are there any better solution?

You can go through this:

column = IFERROR( DATE(LEFT(TABLE[COLUMN],4),MID(TABLE[COLUMN],5,2),RIGHT(TABLE[COLUMN],2)), DATE(yyyy,mm,dd))
