date format is not recognized

Hello,

 

I have imported the attached file into rapidminer and I am trying to convert the attribute "click_time" to a date_time attribute. The format of the attributes is clearly yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss, but when I try to convert it I get the error "Unparseable date: '2017-11-07 09:30:38'."

Re: date format is not recognized

Hi,

 

how are you doing it?

It worked for me with your data in two ways: Directly in the Read CSV wizard or reading the date as nominal and using Nominal to Date.

Here's my process with both approaches. It works correctly on your data. 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><process version="7.6.003">

Re: date format is not recognized

Your process worked for me, even though I tried both of these options before. I must have messed up some of the settings (my encoding was set to SYSTEM and not UTF-16, maybe that is why). 

 

Thank you for your help
