Hi,

I came accross a date format defined as number(6,0) used in a JD Edwards database.

A number such as 104147 is apparently year 2004, 147th year...

Does Oracle 8i have a function that can convert this to date type ?

thanks in advance,

J.C

No, you would have to write your own.

By the way, do you not mean 104147 is year 2004, 147th day?

If so, you would do something like

TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(1900000+v_jd_date),'YYYYDDD')

where v_jd_date is your JD Edwards date-as-a-number
