Subj:   Re: Microsoft-Access and Teradata
 
From:   Fred Keiser

We tested MS_ACCESS using ODBC to Teradata and found it unreliable for Date fields. We use "0001-01-01" as a missing value for hospital admissions.

MS-ACCESS properly interpreted the "0001-01-01" value as missing in the "where clause" of the query. However, missing admission dates were incorrectly returned as '1901-01-01'. Queryman and SAS both handled the missing value of "0001-01-01' properly. Additionally, EXCEL handled this value incorrectly... thought it was "2001-01-01".
