    Date values not working inside tableau

    Ashok Swaminathan


      I'm trying to import a SAS table into tableau and the date is in yyyy-mm format ('201712', '201801' etc). When I look at the date inside tableau the data is not accurate. I converted the date to string and tried using dateparse functions (like how few have suggested here) but I'm not able to get a month year format like this. Dec 17, Jan 18 etcc.

      I also tried using  format (month,week etc) inside the worksheet after dropping them in column and right clicking and that didn't seem to work.

      Can someone suggest any ideas to fix this?

      Any help is much appreciated!
