Hello,As per my knowledge, Teradata doesn't support single digit date values i.e. D, M, 1/2/2009, etc.Your best option will be to do some pre-processing on such fields and make them 2 digit date values i.e. 01/02/2009.HTH!Regards,Adeel

The following will reformat your date column to a standard dd/mm/yy.If you are loading via Multiload or TPump, you can use it in the load. With Fastload, you have to take it in as character and use SQL to reformat it.CASE WHEN Substr(InDate,3,1) = '/' AND Substr(InDate,6,1) = '/' -- Format is dd/mm/yy THEN InDate WHEN Substr(InDate,2,1) = '/' AND Substr(InData,5,1) = '/' -- Format is d/mm/yy THEN '0'||Substr(InDate,1,7) WHEN Substr(InDate,2,1) = '/' AND Substr(InDate,4,1) = '/' -- Format is d/m/yy THEN '0'||Substr(InDate,1,2)||'0'||Substr(InDate,3,4) WHEN Substr(InDate,3,1) = '/' AND Substr(InDate,5,1) = '/' -- Format is dd/m/yy THEN Substr(InDate,1,3)||'0'||Substr(InDate,4,4) ELSE NULL END (Char(8)) (Date,Format 'dd/mm/yy')(InDate is the name of your column or input variable)

Hi ,
This should work.
Select '1/2/14' as date1,
    when strtok(date1, '/', 2) between 1 and 9 then strtok(date1,'/', 3)||'/0'||strtok(date1, '/', 1)||'/'||strtok(date1,'/', 2)
    else  strtok(date1, '/', 3)||'/'||strtok(date1, '/', 1)||'/'||strtok(date1,'/', 2)
end , 'YY/MM/DD'), 'DD/MM/YYYY') as "DD/MM/YYYY";
