    What is the date format? 10 could be month, year or date, but 80 and 90 would only work in the year portion. i.e. 1980/1990. If you are dealing with a number, and it is properly formatted using the to_date('20080507', 'YYYYMMDD') will work. You just need to know that format that the numbers are in otherwise...


    Code:
    SQL> SELECT TO_DATE('108090', 'MMDDYY') from dual;
    SELECT TO_DATE('108090', 'MMDDYY') from dual
                   *
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-01847: day of month must be between 1 and last day of month

    Thumbs up Sql

    Hi

    The field SLIVD (Invoice date) is given date format (Ex: 24/12/2007).
    But, the date is stored in database is 107358 (SLIVD - NUMBER - data type).

    How to select date format from data base?

    Ex:

    >SELECT SLIVD FROM F42199 WHERE SLDOCO=206 ANS SLMCU=11090

    >107289

    I have no idea what "SLIVD - NUMBER - data type" is. I'm guessing it isn't an Oracle support way of storing dates. So if you want help writing a function to do the conversion, then you need to explain the format. How does someone convert from SLIVD to a gregorian date?
