    How to convert the string "Month" into a date?

    alex lee

      Hi everyone,

       

      So currently I have in excel a column that has the category "month" and it would be filled with the value/text "June" or "July"

       

      When I port the data over to Tableau, the system recognizes it as a string of text but I cannot make a line graph because I need to convert the dimension into a data field.

       

      I tried dateparse("MMM", [Month]) but that doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?
