I have a date field that returns in a by statement as 07/01/2019 I need to convert it to say 2019-July. The database field is defined as a MDYY.This message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,
That does not work. I am trying to convert it to alpha. I have to join two tables one is MTR format and the other is YYMDy format. I have search the focal point and the online dictionary with no results
sherrihe, If you make both date fields the same format it should work. If it still doesn't, the problem may not be with the field formats but with the file formats. Are both files you are joining the same format (FOC, SQL, etc)?
