With Flat files you can delete the Transformation Routine associated to the Date Char in the Transfer Structure maintenance (eg PERI6 for CALMONTH) and pass the "internal" format (eg 200401, 200402, ...). This way you won't run into conversion problems.

Hope it helps

Hi Ravi,

make sure your date comes in the SAP internal format YYYYMMDD.
