mixed date format in one column

Hi everybody, I'm new to Qlik and I stumbled upon an interesting thing:

I have data in xlsx format, various tables, various datatypes, all O.K. loaded into Qlik except one column "Access date". In Excel, it looks like a normal datum. But when I create a table in Qlik, it looks like table below. I tried formating via date() in the Table (see below). I tried formatting also in load (date() and date#())  but with no effect.

EmployeeIDAccessDate=date([Access date],'d.m.yyyy')month([Access date])right Access Date I want to see
19.6.2020--9.6.2020
119.6.2020--19.6.2020
129.9.2020--29.9.2020

14400321.0.2020June21.6.2020
14400927.0.2020June27.6.2020

 

Please, any ideas where the problem is?

Thanks a lot!

Try this for different date formats

load * Inline [
date
43995
21.9.2020
];

date(alt(date#(date,'D.M.YYYY'),date(date,'D.M.YYYY')))

Hi @ZuzJsk007 ,

Welcome to Qlik Sense.

Try this:

Date([Access date],'d.M.yyyy')

M must be in In capital letters 😁

Best,

Lotfi

Thank you vor your suggestion 🙂 Unfortunately, it doesn't help with everything 😕 I still see the column divided to NULLs and dates 😞
