How can I use text values and numbers in a matrix if Power BI detects my data as text

Hi I am new to Power BI and trying to report on one of my sql tables with the Matrix visual, the data in the table contains text and numbers but the underlying SQL table is text.

Is there a way to create another column/measure from the data in the value field highlighted for dates and numbers ?

Power Bi Data Table
Thanks

OK so the data table Values are all text, it contains start_date and then a value for example, how can I mark these as date format ?
Assest_Count as a number ? etc. if these were separate columns then I could set the datatype but as they are all text in this column is there any way I can group and change ?

let
    Source = Sql.Database("xx", "xx"),
    dbo_InspectionsInfo = Source{[Schema="dbo",Item="InspectionsInfo"]}[Data],
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(dbo_InspectionsInfo,{{"Value", type text}})
in
    #"Changed Type"
