    Tableau can't parse the date time from my data source

      When I tell Tableau in my dimensions that my field is a DateTime, things are OK. Then I move that dimension to the Columns and I get the following error..

       

      "An error occurred while communication with the data source 'DB2'.

       

      Then there are details...

       

      Firebird database error 335544334: conversion error from string "3/18/2010 2:00:00 PM"

       

      How can I get Tableau to understand the date time format from my data source?
