This SQL report, how are you accessing the Oracle table? Are you setting the Oracle engine or are you using a WebFOCUS Master? If you're using a WebFOCUS Master you could be pointing to a different Master for each execution method...

Use the DBMS:

SET SQLENGINE=SQLORA
SQL SELECT * FROM dbms-table

or
SQL SQLORA SELECT * FROM dbms-table

Use WebFOCUS Master:

SQL SELECT * FROM dbms-table

Looks to me like you have 2 different masters. One where the Oracle date/time field is defined as a date-time field (HYYMDS) and the other where it is defined as a smart date (YYMD).

In our environment there are many times where we want to use an Oracle date-time field as just a date and other times we want to use it as a date-time. For example, if I want all the rows from a given table updated on 9/22/2009 but I want to print the full date time, I define the field in my master twice like this:

FIELD=UPDDT,LST_UPTDT,YYMD,YYMD,$
FILED=UPDDTTM,LST_UPDDT,HYYMDS,HYYMDS,$


LST_UPDDT is the column name in the Oracle table.

Then my fex would look something like this:

TABLEF FILE XXXXX
 PRINT F1, F2, F2
    BY UPDDTTM
 WHERE UPDDT GE '20090922'
   AND UPDDT LT '20090923'
END


Notice that since all of this will get passed to Oracle, by using TABLEF, Oracle will sort the data and WebFOCUS does not resort the data. If I had used TABLE, WebFOCUS would waste time sorting data that is already in the proper sequence.

I figure out just need to put the statement below for running the SQL.

ENGINE SQLORA SET DATETIME OFF

Thanks for the helps. Problem solved.
