Date Conversion w/Cognos

Date Conversion w/Cognos

Date Conversion w/Cognos

Does anyone know of a way to change a SQL View of JDE data to translate their date in to a normal date format i.e.  09/05/01.  The JDE "date" format isn't stored in SQL as a date, but as a numeric field, 9 digits

JDE Format:


C - Century
YY - YY  
Ddd - day of year

Century - 0 = 1900
Century  - 1 = 2000
YY = 01, 02, 67, 95, etc.
DDD = 1-365 to represent  the day.  

We are trying to find the best way to convert it in order to pull it into Cognos Impromptu.  

RE: Date Conversion w/Cognos

J.D. Edwards stores dates in Julian format.  Rather than trying to translate and store the converted Gregorian date in JDE, simply use an Impromptu Julian-to-Date function.  I can provide it to you.  Send an email to me at:
