I was not able to find a comprehensive list of Selected formats in the docs.
%q = string
%C = categorical
%f = floating
%d = integer
Are there others? Is there a format for datetimes?

Somewhat buried in the tabularTextDatastore doc: "You can use the same conversion specifiers that the textscan function accepts". So %D, or %{fmt}D should work.

Hi Michael,
The SelectedFormats property of TabularTextDatastore accepts all formats that are accepted by textscan. You can see this note in the documentation for the TextscanFormats property, which is a superset of the SelectedFormats.
