    Always having problems with the Date field

    matt.lukoff.0

      After a few weeks of using Tableau, I still can't figure out how to easily get the Date field to import correctly from Tableau. What does the raw Excel date field need to look like in order that it can come into Tableau?

      January

      Jan

      1/1/12

       

      (the only one that seems to work for me is January 1, 2012)

       

      - Does it have to be defined as a date field in Excel or does that not matter?
