Date Issue in Line Chart

I have the following dimension:

Year(Most_Recent_Hire_Date)

When I use this in a bar chart I get what I would expect 2014,2015,2016, etc.

When I use this in a line chart I get 2.015k,2.0152k,2.0154k

Why is it calculating it differently from chart to chart type and what do I need to do in the line chart to have it display correctly?

I think it is the formatting issue... May be select Custom format and see if that fixes the issue

It is a dimension so there is not option for custom format

How about using Num() function

Num(Year(Most_Recent_Hire_Date))

Nope.  That doesn't change anything in the line chart.

It displays ok in a combo chart.  But I get other issues.

I guess I am stuck with a bar chart.

What version of Qlik Sense are you on? May be update if possible?

We are still on 3.1.  I have asked to get an update on the schedule since 3.2 just came out.  I guess I will just have to wait and see i that fixes it.  Thanks for your help as usual.
