I need to format the three dates in three different ways.
I am getting not valid month error.
Can you help? Thanks! Beth

JOBCOST_UNITS * COST_PER_UNIT AS EXTENDED_COST

if the three columns are dates, use to_char instead of to_date


SELECT
PACKLIST.PACKLIST_NO,
to_char(TRANSACTION_DATE, 'dd-mm-yyyy'),
to_char(SCHEDULED_SHIP_DATE, 'mm-dd-yyyy'),
to_char(ACTUAL_SHIPPED_DATE, 'mm-dd-yy'),
JOBCOST_UNITS * COST_PER_UNIT AS EXTENDED_COST
FROM PACKLIST, JOBCOST
WHERE PACKLIST.PACKLIST_NO = JOBCOST.PACKLIST_NO;
