    Using Relative date as filter while extracting data

    anoosha shetty

      Hi guys  ,


      I have a column called mth (which is of type string) and has values in it like 2017-2, 2017-3... and so on  in my table.

      We have rolling 13months of data in the table  currently. But user wants only rolling 4 months of data to be dashboard .


      So steps I have followed  :-


      1.      I changed the datatype of mth to “date” in tableau .


      2.      And put a relative date filter during extraction  like  -
