    Timestamp Precision

    Gunnar Tapper

      I have tables with timestamps defined with timestamp(6) precision. This seems to confuse Tableau; that is, a field defined as "Date & time" will show the wrong timestamp. Through experiments, I've determined that a timestamp(0) precision corrects the issue. Problem is, the tables cannot be changed (this level of precision is needed at times) and there are quite a few of them.

       

      Question: is there a way to modify the precision once the data has been loaded into a Tableau Data Extract?

       

      Thanks in advance.
