Sheet creation using Excel - Date Column

Options

Good Morning,

I will be creating a number of sheets using an Excel import and would like the column type to import as Date. I have tried a couple of different ways to make this happen such as change the cell format, make the entire column date etc. but with every import I default back to Text/Number. Anyone have any thoughts before I have to change every column by hand for every sheet created?

Thanks,

Matt

    Hi,

    This is perhaps workaround, but you can create automation that will copy new lines to another sheet with the same data. This you can configure as you wish - create date format of the column, ..

    Best,

    Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear. I need the column type to be Date so I do not have to manually change the type after import. I have a formula that returns a date and without the column being set to the correct type I get an error.
