    How can I convert a number such as 1987.2 to a date field like 1987Q2 so that Tableau recognizes it as a date field?

      Newbie question: I have imported a time series dataset of quarterly data. The structure is always YYYY.Q. So, for example, 1987.1 corresponds to the first quarter of 1987. How can I convert the number so that Tableau recognizes that it is a date field?
