Creating a Numeric Date Id in Excel

In PowerPivot we have the option of fabricating a Date dimension in a worksheet, turning this into an Excel table then linking this table directly to PowerPivot as a Data Source. 

If you like your numeric date keys, you can convert a DateTime value to a number in the format yyyymmdd using the following formula…

=VALUE(TEXT(TODAY(),"yyyymmdd"))
