sorry
it was my mistake , i didn't notice date format
please look at the attached image
beside tr_date filed , i open exprssion
then function
STRTODATE('2015/11/30')
now it is ok
is this the best way to add date , or any other one ?
also , in the previous tab of import wezard , it disable the option of changing date format with dbase file only , but with excell it is enabled
