HI Jack,

I dont even know how i have got two names may be while i have registered something went that whenever i post ..its giving JOE H SMITH.

And coming to requirement.I am using SAS i have got many ETL jobs i have to write a postprocess code,and i will save all my code in whenever my job runs this postprocess code creates a temporary data set where it has jobname and the date on which job is run,and using proc sql i am populating this data set into oracle the issue is date value in SAS is stored as dtdate9. but when itis populated into oracle table it is not stored as just date value,but it is taking datetime when i have googled i have got thiis SASDATEFMT,which converts date into the desired format what exactly i am using i.e if i am using dtdate9.the date values will be just populated as dtdate9. format but not as datetime values...i dontknow exactly how it works i have just taken from google and placed as it is used there ..but it doesnt is throwing error...any help as how to use SASDATEFMT or how can i populate just date value from dataset to oracle table with only date values and not with datetime value.

Hope i confusing you..really sorry.... Please give me any inputs..

Thanks & Regards
