Use a statement like the following to display a date in uppercase:

   SELECT DATE (FORMAT 'MMMbdd,bYYYY') (CHAR(12), UC);

Using 1985-09-12 for data, this statement returns:

   SEP 12, 1985

The following query shows how to specify a date if, for example, the p_date column was specified as FORMAT ' DDBMMMBYYYY ':

   SELECT *
   FROM sales
   WHERE p_date = '30 Mar 1994';

If the p_date column was specified as FORMAT ' YYYY-MM-DD ', the query would be as follows:

   SELECT *
   FROM sales
   WHERE p_date = '1994-03-30';
