    Calculated Date Field and Line Graph

    Monika Wright

      I am trying to create a line graph with a date "data type field" as one of my measures. My data source is a .csv file. Unfortunately, some of my dates are in month-year and year format, and Tableau is not recognizing it. For example, one of my dates is 1835-02, and it is being recognized as 1/1/1900. Year only dates such as 1818 are behaving similarly. Since Tableau is thus recognizing my dates as strings, I added a calculation that allowed Tableau to recognize the data as dates. However, my line graph looks ridiculous now.

       

      I want it to look something like this 

       

      But it is looking something like this 

       

       

      PLEASE HELP!!!
