Formatting custom date

Hi all.

I'm trying to convert a field with the follow format date:

01-sep-2017 (08:24:12)

To a field that I can use as date field to filter by date, month, quarter, etc.. on qlik sense

Following some post I try the follow:

Date(Date#([APERTURA],'dd-M-YY (hh:mm:ss)'), 'D/M/YYYY') as [Data Apertura],

And creating a calendar at the end of the load script:




  Dual(Year($1), YearStart($1)) AS [Year] Tagged ('$axis', '$year'),

  Dual('Q'&Num(Ceil(Num(Month($1))/3)),Num(Ceil(NUM(Month($1))/3),00)) AS [Quarter] Tagged ('$quarter', '$cyclic'),

  Dual(Year($1)&'-Q'&Num(Ceil(Num(Month($1))/3)),QuarterStart($1)) AS [YearQuarter] Tagged ('$yearquarter', '$qualified'),

  Dual('Q'&Num(Ceil(Num(Month($1))/3)),QuarterStart($1)) AS [_YearQuarter] Tagged ('$yearquarter', '$hidden', '$simplified'),

  Month($1) AS [Month] Tagged ('$month', '$cyclic'),

  Dual(Year($1)&'-'&Month($1), monthstart($1)) AS [YearMonth] Tagged ('$axis', '$yearmonth', '$qualified'),

  Dual(Month($1), monthstart($1)) AS [_YearMonth] Tagged ('$axis', '$yearmonth', '$simplified', '$hidden'),

  Dual('W'&Num(Week($1),00), Num(Week($1),00)) AS [Week] Tagged ('$weeknumber', '$cyclic'),

  Date(Floor($1)) AS [Date] Tagged ('$axis', '$date', '$qualified'),

  Date(Floor($1), 'D') AS [_Date] Tagged ('$axis', '$date', '$hidden', '$simplified'),

  If (DayNumberOfYear($1) <= DayNumberOfYear(Today()), 1, 0) AS [InYTD] ,

  Year(Today())-Year($1) AS [YearsAgo] ,

  If (DayNumberOfQuarter($1) <= DayNumberOfQuarter(Today()),1,0) AS [InQTD] ,

  4*Year(Today())+Ceil(Month(Today())/3)-4*Year($1)-Ceil(Month($1)/3) AS [QuartersAgo] ,

  Ceil(Month(Today())/3)-Ceil(Month($1)/3) AS [QuarterRelNo] ,

  If(Day($1)<=Day(Today()),1,0) AS [InMTD] ,

  12*Year(Today())+Month(Today())-12*Year($1)-Month($1) AS [MonthsAgo] ,

  Month(Today())-Month($1) AS [MonthRelNo] ,

  If(WeekDay($1)<=WeekDay(Today()),1,0) AS [InWTD] ,

  (WeekStart(Today())-WeekStart($1))/7 AS [WeeksAgo] ,

  Week(Today())-Week($1) AS [WeekRelNo] ;

DERIVE FIELDS FROM FIELDS [Data Apertura] USING [autoCalendar] ;

But this not work, when I try to get month of the date Data Apertura.autoCalendar.Month not work.

Any help?

Re: Formatting custom date

Try this

TimeStamp(Date#([APERTURA], 'DD-MMM-YYY (hh:mm:ss)')) as TimeStamp,

Date(Floor(Date#([APERTURA], 'DD-MMM-YYY (hh:mm:ss)'))) as [Data Apertura],

Not work.

When I select the dimension month show a empty field (value -).
