Parse to standard date format

This processor parses strings containing dates in any format and outputs a new column with the date in the standard ISO 8601 format.

Important: We recommend that you use the ‘Smart date’ feature by using the ‘Parse date’ menu option to get semi-automatic date parsing.

Please refer to DSS User’s Guide for more information about dates management.

Format strings

You need to specify the format of your input column using the Java syntax for date specifiers

Internationalized parsing and timezones handling

This processor provides advanced handling of dates in locale format (like ‘Mercredi’ in french) and timezone change features. Please refer to the DSS User’s Guide for more information.
