I've add a polygon shapefile that has a field that contains date and time in it's column.

However, when I attempt to calculate the layer time extent I'm getting the values of 1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM

enter image description here

Here is a screenshot of what I'm seeing. I've searched around and haven't really found anything specific on this item, like

Time Slider in ArcMap 10 and Time Format Issues;
Setting the time properties on data

I'm sure it is something simple, but I thought I might put this out here to see if anyone may have encountered previously.

  • What date/times do your features have in their 'ShotDate' field? – Son of a Beach Oct 15 '18 at 22:47
  • It looks like the sample input above next to the time field drop down 2018/05/17 12:38:18' – whyzar Oct 16 '18 at 15:02
  • Is that a string field? Is there a space at the beginning of that value? (Looks like it in the sample, but hard to be certain.) – Son of a Beach Oct 16 '18 at 22:08
  • Yes, it is a string field, no there is no space as the beginning. – whyzar Oct 17 '18 at 12:50
