Hi, I have a data with the following dates under the field "Warranty_End_Date"

Warranty_End_Date Manufacturer
4/1/2026 Lenovo
4/8/2026 Lenovo
1/9/2026 Acer
4/1/2025 Apple
19/7/2023 Acer
4/1/2026 Acer
4/4/2026 HP
8/1/2028 Lenovo
10/1/2022 Lenovo
4/1/2026 Apple
4/1/2026 Apple
4/1/2026 Lenovo
4/1/2026 Lenovo
4/1/2026 Lenovo
4/3/2026 Lenovo
4/3/2026 Lenovo


I want to create a new field with the similar values wrt Warranty_End_Date
Tried the command eval WarEnd = case("Warranty_End_Date" = "*2026", "2026", 1=1, "NA") and similarly for other years but got no proper output

Hi @beepbop,

let me understand, you want to create a new field, where id the year of "Warranty_End_Date" is 2026, you want to put 2026, otherwise "NA", is it correct?

if this is your requirement, you could try something like this:

| eval WarEnd=if(strftime(strptime("Warranty_End_Date","%d/%m/%Y"),"%Y")= "2026", "2026", "NA")

Ciao.
