Dates in Flat Files

Use the TO_DATE function to convert strings to datetime values. You can also use IS_DATE to check if a string is a valid date before converting it with TO_DATE. The transformation language date functions accept date values only. To pass a string to a date function, you must first use the TO_DATE function to convert it to a transformation Date/Time datatype.
