Wath transform formula/method do I need to use to create a "Date and Time" from a "Date" column and a "Time" column?
I Date I Time I
I 1/1/2016 I 2:00 PM I
I Date andTime I
I 1/1/2016 2:00PM I
There is probably a less convoluted way of doing it but thisis how I managed to getting it done:
Create the following individual subtitutions and set them to STRING type:
SUBSTITUTE(`Date`," 12:00:00 AM","" )
Put together the "extrated" Date and Times and set to DATETIME type
Add a Time Zone Shift transform with your time zone.
The concatenate funcion does does seem to take formulas in it which is way I needed to add the extra preliminary steps.
You might need to change the format of the substituted strings depending on your computers default date/time formats.
You might need to start with string version of the Date and Time if things dont work, I did not need to do this in the end.
If no Time Zone shift is added the time will be parsed as (UTC+00:00)
STR_TO_DATE(CONCAT(`DateColumn`, ' ', `TimeColumn`), '%m/%d/%Y %H:%i:%s')
let us know if it works
Thanks for the help, however the Workbench does not have STR_TO_DATE unfortunatelly. So I still need a way to do it in Workbench.
On a side note"
I had to modify the Beast Mode calcuation to get ti to work to:
STR_TO_DATE(CONCAT(`DateColumn`, ' ', TIME(`TimeColumn`)), '%Y/%m/%d %H:%i')
the TIME() funcion being the key difference.
