    Date on x-axis in Excel does not translate into Tableau.

      In my data (Excel spreadsheet) I have columns by Date (mmmm-yy). When I connect to the data in Tableau it shows the date as a number. If I change the formatting to a date, it still does not show up as a reasonable date. For example, the date is Aug-2012 and it shows up at 1989.

       

      I have tried several different date formats in Excel and nothing works.
