Hi, I have an xls with monthly price updates which i want add to my existing reports.
Problem is that this file has a manual month name instead of a real date format :
is there any way to fix this and convert it during load? I'd like to use it with my standard date island.
thanks for any input!
Go to Solution.
You can use Date# function to convert strings into date format (dual).
In your case Date#(right(date, len(date)-1), 'MMM DD').
Then you can convert it with Date function:
Date(Date#(right(date, len(date)-1), 'MMM DD'), 'YYYY-MM')
that's great, thanks alot!
