Summary

How to convert text fields into dates with data that has null or "-" or ""

Content

Hi, I'm new to DV and coming up against some issues with the data set I've imported to a new project.  Using the DV Desktop app - when looking at the table of data and I click on the column header I get some options.  One of those options is to "Convert to Date...".  I then get a popup window and when I try to convert the data I face a number of issues.

1) First issue is that the convert option fails as it can't handle "" or null data fields.
