Date Conversion

5 - Atom

The Date in my Excel is 07/01/2018 with 100 rows of same date and the format in the Excel is in mm/dd/yyyy, but when its being imported to the Alteryx Designer the date column gets converted to 1900-01-06. Any suggestions?

Hello @RaghuPrasad,


I just tried to reproduce your issue, but was not successful, would you mind to share an extract of your excel data and your workflow to look at?


In my case, I never saw any difficulties with a date conversion on Alteryx' side.

The Excel 'date' is likely a number and when you set the field to be a date in Alteryx it messes it up. See below post for more info.
