    Year Date from Excel source keeps getting changed when formatted as date

    Isabel Weeden

      I created a simple data source from Excel that includes a Year field. In working with different views, i found i have more options if the Year Dimension is formatted as a date. However, when i do this it changes the years to 1905- even verified this by rechecking the data. Its like it changed the source data itself. Something i need to do the excel file on the front end before grabbing it through Tableau?
