I'm currently facing an issue where we are using R code to calculate the difference between two date values in days. The code is working fine when we run it in R Studio, but when we put the recipe into Dataiku it seems to not read in the date values correctly. I've attached a screenshot of an example of our expected output vs the type of output we're seeing in Dataiku, and you can see that the date field is being read in as a double instead of a date for some reason.
In the input data, the date is being read in as a string, but in the R code we formatted it as a date and still got the expected output. However, we've now modified the R code to exclude weekends from the calculation, and for some reason this caused the issue to appear. Is there anything we should be changing in the R code or in Dataiku to correct this?
I think your actual date format is epoch, instead of date. Maybe you can convert it to date in R
or via a prepare recipe. Hope this helps!
