Subj:   Re: Error Trapping with Timestamp
From:   Maxwell, Donald


SELECT  '2003-03-31 24:00:00' MyCol
     ,CAST(substring(MyCol, 1, 10) || ' 00:00:00' AS TIMESTAMP(0)) A
     ,CAST(substring(MyCol, 12, 8) AS INTERVAL HOUR TO SECOND) B
     ,A + B CorrectTimestamp

This will yield a CorrectTimestamp of '2003-04-01 00:00:00'

The key is to treat the date and time portions of your string as seperate datatypes, timestamp and interval respectively. Then you can just add the interval to the timestamp to get the correct timestamp.
