What I’m trying to do
I’m attempting to have a date created in the YAML of a file appear in a table via Dataview.
For some reason, using normal iso date format, I’m receiving a “00” in my MM category.
Things I’ve Tried
I noticed that when I change my date format from “YYYY-MM-DD” to “YYYY-M-DD”
It will populate a “1” correctly for January for example…
But if put back into “YYYY-MM-DD” it returns the same 2023-00-28
Any help would be appreciated!
I just tested with
<%+ tp.date.now("YYYY-MM-DD") %> which will render when going to reading view, and it does indeed produce the (almost) expected
2023-01-29 (Oh… Is it past midnight already! Bummer… I thought I still was on the 28th… ).
If it doesn’t do that for you, I would check for updates in the plugins, and restart Obsidian and see if it persists on doing the wrong thing.
@holroy - thanks for your speed - issue is persisting on my side.
Noteably - Any single digit month date is procuring the same issue - I’m able to get the actual “date” inside any file, but as soon as I attempt to dataview it in another file, the dataview is not properly displaying the date.
What do you get if you do this query:
TABLE WITHOUT ID file.link as "Name", dateformat(date, "yyyy-MM MMM") as "Date", file.frontmatter as "Frontmatter"
SORT file.name desc
In a simple test setup of mine, I get this:
After playing around with this - this is what I found if I use dateformat(date, “yyyy-mm-dd”) it will work. But if I use capital MM it will not.
I believe that there is some issue with formatting here as this is an unexpected result.
See here for the documentation on dateformat: Functions - Dataview
This uses luxon tokens, so “yyyy-MM-dd” should be the correct variant for
dateformat to get 2023-01-29. (Using “mm” should return the minutes with two digits)
Also be aware that Templater uses the tokens from moment.js, so for its dateformats it would be “YYYY-MM-DD”. See Moment.js | Docs
