I have a column as month in my excel data set, when i load the data in the file, orange changes it to some numerical values.. Help! I want the Month as it is. Tried changing the value type as short or long date in excel too.

The orange loads Dec-16 as 42055.00 something.

I have the same problem, I was told to avoid Excel as it did not conform to the ISO 8601 standard of 2016-12-27.

Then I transferred the data to Google Sheets as illustrated in Orange tutorial YouTube videos.

The dates were altered to match the required format however the results remain exactly the same.

I have run into this issue when attempting to view temporal data on the scatterplot.

Perhaps Excel is outputting a DATEVALUE

I tried some Excel magic to create columns with Text conforming to the ISO 8601 standard -> This looked promising, but data in these columns could not be assigned as a datetime variable in orange.

In the end I got around the issue by adding columns using the "year" and "month" functions in Excel.
