This is probably super straightforward, but I seem to be finding mixed options. What is an efficient way to convert a date field (MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss AM/PM) to a numeric value (serial, epoch...) in a new numeric field? I am looking to better visualize and understand time distributions for a spatial dataset. I am using ArcMap 10.5. 


Thanks in advance!
