    Converting Dates

    Hi! I've downloaded a report that I need to sort by date. However, the date is showing up as the format below

    Aug 31 2020
    Jun 12 2020
    Jun 12 2020

    This is just a few to show an example. When I sort, it changes is it to alphabetical only. I have over 4,000 fields, does anyone know a quick trick to get this to work?
