Convert Character Date
The Convert Character Date process takes an ISO 8601 character date (which could include time), strip off the date part and add a numeric version of the variable to the data table (which can be saved with the new variable). Running this process enables you to subsequently filter your results based on a numeric variable .
This process is available under the Cols menu.
