Glad it's solved.

| ||Fred: In response to your "IF...", "If the input data matches the FORMAT used in CREATE TABLE". I created and recreated the table
with and without a format statement on Junk02. With the format, I tried both "yyyymmdd" and "mmddyyyy", and subsequently matched the input
data to the format specified, as well as the format statement in the MLoad DML. It was never enough.|| |
Actually, I think it was "too much". It should work if the .FIELD is CHAR, the table is DATE, the data matches the FORMAT from the
CREATE TABLE, and the MLoad DML has no FORMAT explicitly specified. To supply a character date FORMAT in the DML you must also request
conversion to DATE at the same time.
