Option 1Upgrade to Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server to 9.0.3 or a later version. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop.
Option 2Convert the field to a date by using a calculated field.
- Select Analysis > Create Calculated Field.
- Enter the following formula, and then click OK:
DATE( MID([Date], 5, 2) + "/" + RIGHT([Date], 2) + "/" + LEFT([Date], 4))
CauseThis issue occurs when Tableau Server interprets the ga:date field as a string instead of a date. This behavior has been corrected in more recent releases.
