Let’s convert a data type. The Order Date field is formatted as month, day, year, hours and minutes. If you just want the Date, you can convert it.
Select the Date column, select Home > Transform > Data Type, and then select the Date option. You can convert other numeric types, such as percentage or currency.
Note If you get a notification that data type transformations already exist, you can ignore it, since you're overwriting the date transformation that Power Query thought you wanted when you loaded the data.
To return the transformed data to the Excel worksheet, Select Home > Close & Load.
