Axis label date format

David Goodrum shared this question 5 years ago

How do I change the date format on a chart axis? I created a chart with a time series horizontal axis with units of weeks. The date labels on the time axis are displaying in format "DD:MM:YY 12:00 AM". I want to change the date format so that the time does not display, and I can't find where to do it.

Hi David,

the way to change the date format on the chart axis is, within the Data screen of the Report Builder go to Column Formatting->Display->Format, there you will see that the default setting for a DateTime column is "Timestamp":

which displays the DateTime column as you've described, "DD:MM:YY 12:00 AM"


So what you've got to do is to change the Format value from "Timestamp" to "Date" as follows:


and then you'll find that on the chart you'll only see "DD:MM:YY":

I hope that helps you meet your reporting requirements!
