Convert TextBox to Date Picker in PowerApps


I have a Textbox in my Edit form that I would like to convert to Datepicker in PowerApps. The DataSource is Excel Table and the Textbox name is "Registration". I would like to save the selected date in Date-Month-Year ex (01-Mar-2020) format. I am not sure how to achieve this PowerApps ?

Hi @eka24,

Let me back up little bit. So previously, the "Registration" column title was set to Date. However, I didn't selected entire column in Excel Table. So I fixed that issue. Once the issue was fixed, I re-added the column using "Add fields".


Per your suggestion, I hide the time boxes.


For Date box, the "DefaultDate" property is set to Today(), and the "Format" property of Date Box is set to Text("dd-mmm-yyy"). This is displaying the date correctly now in DateBox. However, after clicking "Submit" button, instead of saving Date as 01-Mar-2020. In excel, the output is saved as 03/01/2020. Any workaround with this ? I would like to save in same format as I have in the form.


Thanks in advance for help!

You have to format that in Excel.

Thanks! Seems like on submission time is also getting saved. Is there a way to avoid Time Submission ? Eventhough I set Time boxes to invisible ?

Start column name with word "date" if your field name is Registration than it must be "Date Registration"

this will definitely work.

In This case you have to edit its "default" property to "Text(ThisItem.Date,"dd/mm/yyyy")"

It will definitely work.
