Subj:   ODBC 'datetime' format
 
From:   Kumaran Anantaraman

Can someone clarify the ODBC 'datetime format' setting better?

In the 'datetime format' setting in ODBC, the manual says

"...Where A=ANSI (new format), I=Integer (old format)


The first letter in the three-letter combination represents the DATE format,..."

In the above line, What EXACTLY does 'DATE format' mean? And why did my queryman/command of create table with a column defined as TIME get converted to INTEGER, and TIMESTAMP to char, when the DATETIME format was set to 'I' for both. Is this 'datetime format' describing the format of the datetime literals or the datatype that will be created?
