Hello @arkiboys ,
Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.
My understanding is that you would like to know what is the mapping data flow equivalent expression function to
formatDateTime. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
In mapping data flow expression builder you can use combination of toDate() and toString() functions to format your input date to your desired date format.
For example, if you would like to convert a Date in ( YYYYMMDD) while it’s coming as "2018-10-01T00:00:00" in your source. Then sample expression would look like below:
For samples please refer to this video by @MarkKromer-MSFT - Work with date time expressions in ADF Data Flows
