    Convert string data into quarter dates

    Eric Volker

      I am working with quarter data. When I pull in the data into Tableau, they are strings. What I want to do is convert the filed into a date. Is there an easy to way to do this? I have been searching and trying some methods but to avail.

       

      The data looks like this: Q1 2015

                                            Q2 2015

       

      When I try to convert into dates, it just comes back as null. Is there an easy way to do this?

       

      Thanks for the help!
