Dates not merging after formatting them

Good day,

I have dates from different tables which i have formatted the same as

Monthend(Date(Date#(right(FileBaseName(),6),'YYYYMM'),'YYYY\MM\DD')) as Date  - this one is derived from the file with the name current_file_202006 and the second one reads as

CurrentDate as Date ( which is already formatted as 'YYYY\MM\DD' from the source table.

The two dates are not merging even though they have been formatted the same. 

When you convert them to num(monthend(Date(Date#(right(FileBaseName(),6),'YYYYMM'),'YYYY\MM\DD'))) as Date  and num(CurrentDate) as Date, you get  44012,999999988 for the first one and  44012 for the second one.

How can I merge them to be the same?

Can you share snapshot of both the Dates  by taking them in listbox? Just to look at the values

Hi Alex. The formula applied with Dat# function still returns the same values.
