    Help convert into Date (Data Cleaning)

    Dario Restrepo

      Hello Good Tableau Samaritans,

       

      I wanted to see if someone can help me with something that should be easy, (hard for the newb )

       

      I am importing data from an excel spreadsheet.  I have two data columns that need to be converted into a Date Format for Tableau to recognize.

       

      The first 2016Q1 and the other comes in this format  Sep-14.

       

       

      Can someone please help me create or direct me on the right path in converting these fields into normal Date formats?

       

      I have attached two workbooks, one for each example.. Hopefully you guys can help me with both !

       

       

      Thanks in advance,

       

      Dario
