Hi,


The following exception is caught while running my aplication.

-------------------------------------------------------
ORA-01861: literal does not match format string  
-------------------------------------------------------

The exception is caught while trying to insert data into a temporary table

The temporary table is created using the following query.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
CREATE GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE TempAvgDistRecords  
(
PROJEKTID NUMBER,
FIRMAID VARCHAR(20),
GEBIETID VARCHAR(20),
DATUM DATE,
DATUMVON DATE,
DATUMBIS DATE
)
-------------------------------------------------------------------



Query which fetches data is as follows
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SELECT DISTINCT PJDT.PROJEKTID, PJDT.FIRMAID, PJDT.DATUM, PJVS.GEBIETID, PJVS.DATUMVON,
PJVS.DATUMBIS FROM PJDT, PJVS,GB, GBSU WHERE PJDT.PROJEKTID = PJVS.PROJEKTID
AND PJDT.FIRMAID = PJVS.FIRMAID  AND GB.GEBIETID = PJVS.GEBIETID AND
GB.GEBIETID = GBSU.GEBIETID AND (GBSU.SUBJEKTIDPE = 'pe01293')
AND (PJDT.DATUM BETWEEN '01-Jul-2006' and '19-Jul-2006')}
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------










The output of the above query is as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROJEKTID FIRMAID              DATUM     GEBIETID             DATUMVON
---------- -------------------- --------- -------------------- ---------
DATUMBIS
---------
      7714 4                    01-JUL-06 011-000-000-201-0009 01-JAN-00
31-DEC-99

      7714 4                    08-JUL-06 011-000-000-201-0009 01-JAN-00
31-DEC-99

      7714 4                    15-JUL-06 011-000-000-201-0009 01-JAN-00
31-DEC-99


 PROJEKTID FIRMAID              DATUM     GEBIETID             DATUMVON
---------- -------------------- --------- -------------------- ---------
DATUMBIS
---------
      7742 4                    11-JUL-06 011-000-000-201-0009 01-JAN-00
31-DEC-99
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The “ORA-01861: literal does not match format string”  exception  is caught while trying to insert the above output data into the Temporary Table which have been created in the beginning.

Can anyone resolve this issue???

I see what is probably wrong.

you created the table with these fields:

CREATE GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE TempAvgDistRecords  
(
PROJEKTID NUMBER,
FIRMAID VARCHAR(20),
GEBIETID VARCHAR(20),
DATUM DATE,
DATUMVON DATE,
DATUMBIS DATE
)

but your query takes them in another order, ie DATUM before GEBIETID

SELECT DISTINCT PJDT.PROJEKTID, PJDT.FIRMAID, PJDT.DATUM, PJVS.GEBIETID, PJVS.DATUMVON,
PJVS.DATUMBIS FROM PJDT, PJVS,GB, GBSU WHERE PJDT.PROJEKTID = PJVS.PROJEKTID
AND PJDT.FIRMAID = PJVS.FIRMAID  AND GB.GEBIETID = PJVS.GEBIETID AND
GB.GEBIETID = GBSU.GEBIETID AND (GBSU.SUBJEKTIDPE = 'pe01293')
AND (PJDT.DATUM BETWEEN '01-Jul-2006' and '19-Jul-2006')}

so, change the SELECT field order for your insert:

SELECT DISTINCT PJDT.PROJEKTID, PJDT.FIRMAID, PJVS.GEBIETID, PJDT.DATUM, PJVS.DATUMVON,
PJVS.DATUMBIS FROM PJDT, PJVS,GB, GBSU WHERE PJDT.PROJEKTID = PJVS.PROJEKTID
AND PJDT.FIRMAID = PJVS.FIRMAID  AND GB.GEBIETID = PJVS.GEBIETID AND
GB.GEBIETID = GBSU.GEBIETID AND (GBSU.SUBJEKTIDPE = 'pe01293')
AND (PJDT.DATUM BETWEEN '01-Jul-2006' and '19-Jul-2006')}
