I have a SQL server table that has a date field in it called LOADDATE. In the description of the column in SQL Server it says LOADDATE (date, not null)
When I have a DEFINE using the DOWK(LOADDATE, 'A4') I get blanks returned. When I just report out the LOADDATE field I get 2016/08/29 When I substitute &YYMD in DOWK(&YYMD, 'A4') then MON is returned as it should be. When I report out &YYMD by itself I get the date in the 2016/08/29 format.
So why if the two fields have the same format does the DOWK(LOADDATE, 'A4') not work?

The PRINT LOADDATE/WT did give me the day of the week but I want to filter on that value so I was looking more for a DEFINE way of getting to the day of week. Sorry I should have made that clearer in the original post.
