The following table describes the things to consider when using the DATEFORM command.

DATEFORM Considerations 
Topic Usage Notes
Command Frequency and Placement Only one DATEFORM command can be used.

Enter the command before the LOGON command.

Data Type Conversions When the ANSIDATE specification is used, convert ANSI/SQL DateTime data types to fixed-length CHAR data types by specifying the column/field names in the Teradata MultiLoad FIELD command.

See the command usage notes for FIELD command description for a description of the fixed-length CHAR representations for each DATE, TIME, TIMESTAMP, and INTERVAL data type specification.

Release Applicability The ANSIDATE specification is valid for Teradata MultiLoad jobs.
