Hi Experts,

I would like to change the format from 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS.FF7' to 'DD.MM.YYYY' format. ( Because my target will accept only this format )

How to do the same? do we have any standard functions which it converts to mentioned format.

Like in ABAP, CONVERSION_EXIT_IDATE_INPUT/OUTPUT.

I tried with Splitting the date and concatenating into required format. But, just want know if we have any standard function.

Hi Modadugu,

you should be able to achieve that with TO_VARCHAR conversion function.

Hi Michal,

Thanks for your reply.

I am trying with the below query

declare is_valid varchar (12);

SELECT TO_CHAR(TO_DATE(valid_until), 'DD.MM.YYYY')

   INTO   IS_VALID

   FROM  USERS

   WHERE "USER_NAME" =  'test';

while using is_valid in the insert query i got an error.

Error while parsing IS_VALID as TIMESTAMP

what is the data type for IS_VALID should be?
