Group by, begins with dates

My dates are in the format YYYYMMDD. I’d like to group counts by months and year. If I was in Excel I’d create new columns with year and month. What’s the best way to do this?

Hi @ayscueb -

You can use the String to Date&Time node to convert to a native KNIME date, and then afterward use the Extract Date&Time Fields to get the year and month fields desired.

Something like this:

Correction. Dates are in DDMMMYYYY.

The month is 3 letters, all caps. e.g., 02JAN2021

To convert to KNIME format you can also try

In that case you will need to convert to mixed case (e.g. “Jan”) for the months in order for the String to Date&Time node to parse it properly.
