Challenge #58: An Odd String to Date Conversion

Alteryx Partner

I could have sworn that we have done a weekly challenge like this before, or I am having a Deja Vu.

 

Anyway, nice with a quick and simple challenge and here is my shot

Here's my solution to challenge 58! (Isn't this exactly the same as challenge 46?)

Since this is identical to Challenge #46 and I did my best to minimize the use of formulas in that one, I did this conversion with one formula.

The formula is 
ToDate(IIF(StartsWith([date],"1"), "20", "19") + Substring([date],1,2)+ "-" + Substring([date],3,2) + "-" + Substring([date],5,2))

I only just completed challenge number 46 the other day; challenge 58 is the same. So skipping on to next 'beginner' challenge.
