Hello, I need to convert this number formatted line item to 04/11/2022. Best approach?
Hi @melliott ,
First you need convert number to text
second you need to break data to day, month, and year
third you need to convert data (day, month, year) to DATE
Here the Blueprint
How does this number come in to Anaplan?If it is imported in you could convert to date during import (assuming it comes with a leading zero, 04112022).
I assume it's always imported as an 8-digit number, with all leading zeros included (so it's unambiguous that i.e. 1112022 is 1/11/2022, and 11/1/2022 would be 11012022). Also in my answer I assume format MMDDYYYY, and I do conversion just on numbers (without converting back and forth to text):
