Sorry, I'm not familiar with that product.

You might try looking up the various date transformation functions available for the RDBMS backend you are working with and see if you can apply them in your code.

DataStage is a software product... Ascential Software DataStage, and/or Webshpere's Datastage (fromerly ascential) http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data/integration/datastage/

If (by way of example only) using Sybase as your database have a look at : http://www.sybase.com/detail?id=1035512   it does have samples down toward the bottom - basically have to create your own transform...

Other than that, go to your you will need to find out more about what it is that you are actually running...

We are using Sybase and ASql Server as our Databases and I finally discovered an inhouse Transform routine that converts the System Date into CCYYMMDD.

Thank You

We know - you said that back on the 15th - or were you just toying with us :-)

The transform routines shouldn't be too hard to start from scratch... that second link does show you the steps - though not for date. Anyway, bit academic now, and glad you found it... Happy days !
