In this module, you will see how to use functions such as CALENDAR and CALENDARAUTO to create a new date table in case your data source does not include one.

You will also see how to crete a Date table with the right metadata, marking the table as a Date table and applying the correct sort order to text columns containing day and month names. Finally, you will see considerations about handling multiple dates in the same table.
