I have a table with a column Col1 defined as date.
When I query the table as
Sel * from table where col1 = 2007-07-14 , (no quotes in the value) the query doesnt return me any errors.
So what value is teradata assuming in the above query?
I did the following test
create volatile table test (col1 date ) on commit preserve rows; Insert into test (20080716) ; sel * from test where col1 = '3908-07-16' ( since teradata offsets from 1900/01/01) Ans: 3908-07-16 sel * from test where col1 = 3908-07-16 ; /* no quotes here */ Ans : no rows returned
But the above query doesnt prompt a 'failed conversion to numeric' error.
Can you tell me what date is teradata looking at when we say 3908-07-16
Thanks a lot for your responses
