Manipulating the date format of a data stream


  • anitaanita SingaporeSYS_ADMIN IMG42
    Hey @Ashleigh_F1sher ,

    Good day! You can definitely manipulate your data to take certain part of the csv['Date'] value. In your example if your value is 2019-01-18 (Fri), you can extract "2019-01-18" using EXTRACT function, and then getting the system to read the format by PARSEDATE function.

    var d = TRIM(EXTRACT(csv['Date'],"(",0));
    PARSEDATE (d,"YYYY-MM-dd");

    Let us know if this helps. Your CSM can also advise you further if you are seeing other date format :)

    Hi @Mareets, there are a few ways to extract the date in the format you mentioned, one way is to use the LEFT() function to get the first 10 char then parse it, eg:

    var d = LEFT(csv['campaign2'],10);
    PARSEDATE (d,"YYYY-MM-dd");

    It would be best to also raise a ticket and attach your sample file, also indicating which data stream and account you are trying this on.

    All the best!

    HI @Mareets, FORMATDATE_DEFAULT(your field) can change any format to a default format , ref:

    From there you can extract the portion you need.

    If you still need more assistance, it would be best to send in your ticket to [email protected] and also attach your sample file. Please mention the workspace and data stream ID too, so we can look into your current setup.
