Truncate time using SQL Loader
I have a date field in my data file containing date + time, like, 2002-12-24 08:54:40.29.
I need to insert this field in 'MM/DD/YYYY' format in the table using SQL Loader. Is there a way to truncate the time?
Can anyone please suggest an option to do so at the earliest as this is urgent!
