    Quick Tip: Blending Dates

    Shawn Wallwork

      When you are pulling your hair out because you just can't get Tableau to blend on dates, take Alex Kerin's advice: Remain Calm...

       

      Then check to make sure both dates are the same data type. Data type you ask? Yep it is so easy to overlook the fact that one of your date fields is a "Date" type and the other is a "Date & Time" type (after all they both have those little calendar page icons). As far as Tableau is concerned you might as well be trying to blend a string and a number.

       

      Quick Tip: Save hair, check the data type.
