Parsing dates

Level 3
Parsing dates


The automatic parsing of dates bu DATAIKU, when uploading an excel file is incredibly bad, wrong and UNCORRECT.


How to stop this automatic parsing and get JUST the data in a STRING value without using the recipes, which by the way do not work either on this item ?

Hey @LaurentS , 

Can you share an example of the issue that you are having?

I've just tested, and when I upload an Excel sheet into Dataiku, it detects the column as "String / Date (unparsed)," and I am able to swap that to "String / Text" without issue.
