I don't know specifics of Teradata, but converting numeric values to dates will depend a little on the flavor of SQL that runs the SELECT statement. Can you elaborate on the version of SQL that is involved?

It might be necessary to convert numeric to character, and then to a DATE data type. Or it might be more direct. It will depend on the functions available through your SQL engine.
