Subj:   Date to text conversion
 
From:   Nick Druga

This works, but there must be an easier way to convert a date field to a character string with a format of yyyymmdd. 1/1/2002 must convert to 20020101. Any suggestions?

Code:

select                           cast(extract(  year from datefield) as char(4))   ||
substr(                    '00'||cast(extract( month from datefield) as char(2)),
   char(TRIM(TRAILING FROM '00'||cast(extract( month from datefield) as char(2))))
-1,2)
   ||
substr(                    '00'||cast(extract(   day from datefield) as char(2)),
   char(TRIM(TRAILING FROM '00'||cast(extract(   day from datefield) as char(2))))
-1,2) as yyyymmdd
from table1
;
