Let’s discuss how to convert an Integer to Datetime in it. Now to convert Integers to Datetime in Pandas DataFrame, we can use the following syntax:
df[‘DataFrame Column’] = pd.to_datetime(df[‘DataFrame Column’], format=specify your format)
Note: The integers data must match the format specified.
As we can see, the data type for the ‘Dates’ column is Integer. Now to convert it into Datetime we use the previously mentioned syntax. Since in this example the date format is yyyymmdd, the date format can be represented as follows:
For our example, the complete code to convert the integers to DateTime would be:
Example #2: Now, suppose the Dataframe has a date in format yymmdd. In this case, the date format would now contain ‘y’ in lowercase:
So the complete Python code would look as follows:
Example #3: Now, let’s suppose that your integers contain both date and time. In that case, the format that you should specify is:
So the full Python code would be:
Example #4: Consider this DataFrame with microseconds in our DateTime values. In this case, the format should be specified as:
So the full Python code will be:
