DW intircacies between Sybase and Oracle

I have a DW that pulls out some segments of data on the pull.

3 lines cause me an Invalid Datawindow Row/Column error when I run the application.

SELECT <Various Column names>,
     charindex( FAST.account_request.status,"xndaper"),  
     datepart(mm, FAST.account_request.requested_date),  
     datepart(dd, FAST.account_request.requested_date),  
     datepart(yy, FAST.account_request.requested_date)

These lines Oracle doesn't like in the Datawindow.

Any solution please?

Please check the name of the column. May be false.
And/or also may the row does not exist.

Oracle does not recognize 'Charindex' or 'Datepart'
CharIndex(...) = InStr(...)
DatePart(...)  = To_Number( To_Char( ... ))

AND the parameter lists are different.

For Oracle why don't you try:

Option 1:
SELECT <Various Column names>,
    InStr("xndaper", FAST.account_request.status),  
    To_Number( To_Char(FAST.account_request.requested_date, 'mm') ),  
    To_Number( To_Char(FAST.account_request.requested_date, 'dd') ),  
    To_Number( To_Char(FAST.account_request.requested_date, 'yy') )

Option 2:
You could also create wrapper functions in Oracle to replicate the functions 'CharIndex' and 'DatePart'. This would be the prefered syntax if the datawindow needs to run in both environments.

Option 3:
You might also change the SQLSelect dynamically just before the retrieve.

ls_SQL = dw_1.Object.Datawindow.Table.Select
...
dw_1.Object.Datawindow.Table.Select = ls_SQL

ll_Return = dw1.Retrieve()

Could you elaborate more on the use of to_number and Instr?

I inserted the text as it appears above, and of course it didn't take.  

Modifying the SQL on the fly is something that can be done, but won't it error out when it goes to retrieve anyhow?

Thanks much
