Thread: Table Output step - Data type

  1. #1

    Default Table Output step - Data type


    I am using a DB2 Database. It has 'Date' and 'Timestamp' datatypes.

    I have a column 'A' of 'date' type (yyyy/mm/dd) in my transformation.

    When i ran the transformation, the data was not getting loaded because of Datatype error.

    When i checked the SQL in Table Output, it shows an 'alter' table sql to change the datatype of 'A' from 'Date' to 'Timestamp'.

    Cant we load 'Date' type columns in PDI?

    Hi Pon.
    Maybe you need to use a Select Value step to convert your Date yyyy/mm/dd into a different Date format which is compatible with the output database.
