  I am having data format issue. I have a table where the date column is defined as the format "yyyy/mm/dd" and when I am selecting from this table and doing substr it is giving correct result.  

I doubt there's a need to substring a DATE, it's usually more efficient to use EXTRACT, etc.

Could you show what you actually do?

Your system default is set to 'yy/mm/dd' (Integerdate) and the FORMAT is apparently not carried over to the Volatile Table.

Changing the dateform on session level should work:
