    Two versions of Tableau Desktop 7 running, one shows up with dates, the other with strings

      In my office I am connecting to the same database from 2 different instances of Tableau 7.  However on my personal copy all dates appear correctly in the Dimensions window, but on the other copy all of the dates are appearing as strings.  Is there a setting that can be switched to allow for dates to be viewed correctly?  Or what causes the dates to be read as strings?
