    How to use date (year) in Tableau

    nicholas vielbig

      Hi,

       

      I'm new to Tableau, and I'm trying to make a time series graph of hockey players statistics over a 5 year period. I have a column with heading "Year" and then it has below it 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 for each of the players. When I connect to the data in Tableau, it automatically is not using the it as a year, and when I change the data type to Date, it changes it to the year 1905? Strange. Sorry I'm very new, easy question, i'm sure.

       

      Regards,

      Nick
