Thread: Problem in splitting date string to Day, Month, Year

    Question Problem in splitting date string to Day, Month, Year

    Hi I am new to Pentaho data integration & spoon and am trying to split a date string already converted to 'dd-MM-yyyy' format with 'Select Value' to Day, Month and Year with 'Split fields'. The problem is if I set the delimiter as "-" or - and type of each field as 'number' the debugger throw up an error ('non-numeric value at position 3'. If I set the type of each field as 'integer' then Split Fileds only returns the values for Day correctly while Month and Year columns show up as null. Any help appreciated. Thanks

    No need to convert a Date field to a String field to extract parts.
    Look at the Calculator step for functions to extract Day of Month, Month of Year, and Year.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
