Subj:   Re: Cast Behavior Between 6.1 and 6.2
 
From:   Mutsch, Joerg

Tony,

This has never worked (at least not for me). Teradata is cutting the leading zero so you have to provide a format on which you would like to cast.

Try this one:

     CAST ( CAST( ( extract (month from cast(DATE_FIELD as DATE  FORMAT
     'YYYYMMDD') ) )  AS DECIMAL(2) FORMAT '99')AS CHAR(2)) AS MONTH_ID

It's not elegant but it works :)
