## Challenge #58: An Odd String to Date Conversion

Alteryx Certified 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

Spoiler
I could not help notice, that some more clever persons than me, did this using one single formula, but I did get the end result pretty fast, even with all the hoops.

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.
