It seems to be delivering the described intended results on my system:

     CREATE TABLE DATE_TEST
     (
         DATE_COL DATE FORMAT 'YY-MM-DD'
     )
     ;

     INSERT INTO DATE_TEST VALUES ('2012-12-31');
     INSERT INTO DATE_TEST VALUES ('2012-11-30');

     SELECT * FROM DATE_TEST;

        DATE_COL
     1   11/30/2012
     2   12/31/2012


     CREATE  VOLATILE TABLE VTT AS
     (
     SELECT DATE_COL  (format 'YYYY-MM-DD') AS column_1 from DATE_TEST
     ) WITH DATA
     ON COMMIT PRESERVE ROWS
     ;

     SELECT * FROM VTT;

        column_1
     1   11/30/2012
     2   12/31/2012



     SELECT SUBSTRING(CAST((COLUMN_1 (FORMAT 'YYYY-MM-DD')) AS CHAR(10)),1,4)
     FROM VTT
     ;

        Substr(column_1,1,4)
     1   2012
     2   2012
