Convert Text to Date Time format

Hi All,

 

I have a simple one to ask. Source system is sending a date value which contains both date and time and it is storing in Anaplan Text line item in a module. Need to convert this text to date format and post this need to convert it again into IST or other time zone format.

Kindly help here.

 

Example:

Source date value : 2019-01-01 14:49:13.000

Unfortunately, Anaplan does not understand time, only date.  You'll be able to upload with date format if you can exclude the time portion of the field to import.  If you cannot exclude the time, you can upload as text and pull out the date out of the text string with functions...
