You can change the default data type of your time column from date-time to string while connecting to the source on " Connect tot Data Source Page" .
This will ensure that a default date is not appended in front of your time data.
Have a look at the screenshot ( Change from Date & time to String ).
Thanks Sharad. I was able to eliminate the date by turning it into a
string; however, as a string, Tableau also sorts the data in a mixed order
as it is not grouping the AM's and PM's together. Here's what the sort
order looks like:
I would like to keep it as an AM/PM for user friendliness, but I don't see
a way to sort the data unless I have to do so manually (There are 1,300
different time records, about as many different minutes as there are in a
day). And I need to sort the time this way to show variations in the number
of records throughout the day. Do you know how I can get this sorted?
