Dates / Date_parse / Automodel Preprocessing
I have a process, exported from AutoModel, that decomposes all dates into attributes like "date_name:month_of_year", "date_name:year", "date_name:day_of_month", etc. I'm trying to recoup the original dates from the underlying data (thinking this would be "easy" to do by stringing a bunch of concat() s together and feeding them to date_parse()... e.g. concat(concat(date_name:month_of_year,"/"),date_name:day_of_month))...
This is turning out to be more difficult than anticipated. Any suggestions for a different approach?
