This is a simple one but please help anyway
- I have imported FB data into SAS Visual Analytics - and now the publisheddatetimestr variable in the imported datatable is an CATEGORY variable of the text form:
"March 7, 2016 9:32:53 PM GMT"
I expect that by creating the right formula in "New Calculated Item" builder in VA I can convert this textstring into a date (or datetime) variable that I can do date hierarchies on - but I have not managed yet to do the needed PARSING.
Can anyone help me on this simple one, please?
Well done in working out the solution and thanks for sharing it too! (I was in the process of posting a similar approach.)
