A solution to last week's challenge can be found here.
The Wareki is a Japanese date format which includes an extra character to signify the era. The eras indicate the emperor at the time and they impact the year only. For example, H04/01/31 represents the 4th year of Heisei era, but the 01/31 is in fact January 31st of that year.
Modern Japan, which is considered the period beginning in 1868, is currently in its 5th era. This week's challenge is to create a macro that converts Wareki dates into Alteryx Datetime or vice versa. The macro should include a configuration option for Wareki to Date or Date to Wareki.
