Date field not recognized by date picker extension ?

 Here is the  load script for the date field 

Timestamp(Timestamp#([ Date field ], 'MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm TT') ) AS [ Date field ]

This field does not automatically show up in the Date Picker extension.

I tried date ( floor( [Date field])) in the script  but that does not work also. 

In the Excel file all the values are formatted as :  11/21/2018 01:15 PM

How do I eliminate the  01:15 PM  and make the Date Picker pick up the field ?


Any ideas ?

Check your data format, must be the same at properties from extension:

 No  the date field is still not being recognized by the date picker



When loading date fields via Data Manager, these will be automatically recognised and tagged as date fields. If you explore the auto-generated load script you'll see the following expressions for each date field:

Date(Date#(DateFieldName, 'DD/MM/YYYY'), 'DD/MM/YYYY') as formattedDate

If  still date picker object doesn't display/recognise that field, then try this trick:

  1. Select one of the available fields from the drop down
  2. Enable 'Advanced Setup' (i.e. 'ON')
  3. Use the expression editor to enter the desired field manually.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I suggest to tag the field as a date. These fields are shown by date picker:

Tag Field DateField With '$date';
