    Formatting Dates from Numeric Field

    Signo Uddenberg

      I have a dataset where the date comes in a numeric field, such as "1,509,745,851".

       

      Is it possible to convert that to a date field in Tableau? Or does it need to be formatted differently prior to importing?

       

      I've tried converting it to a string, which works, then a date, which does not work. Nor does converting it directly to a date. Also, the Tableau version I'm using (2018.1.3) doesn't seem to have the DATEPARSE function.

       

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks!
