    Date field questions?

    Gengming Chen

      SQL returns the date field as YYYYMMDD. Tableau is seeing it int filed. How could I get Tableau to recognize/convert it into date field?

      I was looking at something like in in Excel Date(Year(),Month(),Day()) -- where I can use string function to construct a date field.

      However since tableau does not have Date() function. I wonder what is the easiest way to get Tableau to do this?

       

      Thanks,

      Leo
