Importing Date using Teradata Sql Assistant

Importing Date using Teradata Sql Assistant

Importing Date using Teradata Sql Assistant

Iam trying to insert a record in a table using teradata sql assistant import option. This record in a file has date field in it and the number of columns values in the file match with the table structure.When i try to import
 iam running to issue .It says something about the invalid data in the date field .Is there any way to do the date field import from the file?

I tried
insert  into dbcname.tblname (?,?,?,?,?)
i've the date in 4th and 5th column
failed saying invalid date


RE: Importing Date using Teradata Sql Assistant

The date needs to be in the same format as the default format of the field in the table or you need to tell teradata what format the date is in.
Help table dbcname.tblname should give you the format of the date field (for example yyyy-mm-dd). If you change the format of the date in the text file to the same, it should work.
insert  into dbcname.tblname (?,?,?,cast(? as date format 'dd-mm-yyyy'),cast(? as date format 'dd-mm-yyyy'))
[where 'dd-mm-yyyy' is the date format of the data in the text file] will enable you to use the text file as-is.
