CDS Dataflow Null in Date / Datetime

Hello,

 

I would like to import a table from SQL. My Problem (Automated Dataflow)

If Date or Datetime is "Null" then this item will not be imported. Anybody any idea or a workaround?

Re: CDS Dataflow Null in Date / Datetime

update: 

In my opinion its definitive a BUG. Its not Null as I thought (I filtered them) but its the German date Format.

For example: The date 20.09.2019 is formatted as 20.9.2019 and cannot be transformed to the same Dateformat in the Entity.

When there is another Date like 9.9.2019 it works

Found a workaround: Go through the Dataflow Installation Process. Let it sync the first time, Receive the error message

Go back to Dataflow and in advance query change the settings of the fields to TEXT.


This helps for Numbers and for Dates.

 

This is definitifely a bug or an adjustment to be done where I cannot find it
