DATEVALUE DAX Function (Date and Time)

Converts a date in the form of text to a date in datetime format.

Syntax

DATEVALUE ( <DateText> )
Parameter Attributes Description
DateText

A text string that represents a date.

Return values

Scalar A single datetime value.

A date in datetime format.

Remarks

The DATEVALUE function uses the locale and date/time settings of the client computer to understand the text value when performing the conversion. If the current date/time settings represent dates in the format of Month/Day/Year, then the string, “1/8/2009”, would be converted to a datetime value equivalent to January 8th of 2009. However, if the current date and time settings represent dates in the format of Day/Month/Year, the same string would be converted as a datetime value equivalent to August 1st of 2009.

If the year portion of the DateText argument is omitted, the DATEVALUE function uses the current year from your computer’s built-in clock. Time information in the DateText argument is ignored.
