Informatica Date/Time Conversion

+1 vote
2,560 views

In one of the requirment informatica fetching data from flat file as source file and insert records into a temporary table temp of DB2 database. Flat file has one column as datetime datatype (YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS). However, informatica fetching this column as string datatype (Since Informatica date format is different from this column & DB2). So before loading into temp table of DB2 database, I need to convert back this column into Datetime format.

With Expresion transformation, I can do this but I dont know how? To_date conversion function (TO_DATE(FIELD, 'YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS')) is there but it will take care of date only (YYYY/MM/DD). Its not taking care of time (HH:MM:SS) and because of this records are not inserting into temp table.

How can I convert datetime from String datatype to DB2 datetime format (YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS)?

You tried to use the month format string (i.e. MM) for the minutes part of the date.

You need to use MI:

TO_DATE(FIELD, 'YYYY/MM/DD HH:MI:SS')

'YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS' is not a correct format (MI should for minute in spite of MM), probably its a typo mistake due to that you are facing issue.

You can use this syntax - TO_DATE(FIELD, 'YYYY/MM/DD HH:MI:SS')

I am loading date fields from file to teradata table. In a file my date format is mm-dd-yyyy and in my teradata table the format is yyyy/mm/dd.

I used the below function for formatting:

To_date(to_char(date field,'mm-dd-yyyy'),'yyyy/mm/dd')
But all my records are going in rejected records. When I checked session log my date field was mentioned as invalid date.

Please help on this.
