    Using dates before 00/00/0000 in tableau

    Liz Casey

      Hello!

      I am new to the Community. I have been practicing calculations with Tableau Public data. I am currently using the Volcanic Eruption data set. This data set deals with all sorts of messy date issues. (nulls, dates before 00/00/0000, inconsistent integer format etc.) I got through creating a parsed date, but I can't figure out why there is an error occurring and also how to account for "negative time" / time before 00/00/0000. Does anyone have suggestions and/or some good resources to assist with this? (Workbook in 9.2 attached)
