    Problems with Quarter

    Matt Lee

      I have a data set that is by quarter so I have a column called "Qtr" which contains previous quarters such as "Q1/2011", "Q2/2011", "Q3/2011" and so on.  Is there a way to force Tableau to recognize my quarters as a valid date? 

       

      It just treats it as a string so when I want to generate a time series chart, I can't use all the features like trend lines.

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
