I am new to data analysis and preparing a data set.  I have a CSV file with the time stamp in the following format: "2018/05/14:12:00:00 PM."

What is a recommended way to "parse" the time stamp into Year, date, and time components to make it easier to sort and filter?

    You can also define the date-time format in the csv import wizard and save one step. Which I see Scott has already pointed out. I didn't see the first image.

    Or you can use "Date to Numerical" and then specify the date component you want to extract.
