I have a date input in Webfocus html form. The form is writing into the DB by a SQL Passthrough. The oracle default date format is DD-MON-YY (01-JAN-01). Webfocus offers a lot of date formats within the tool except the one required for me.
How do I convert from DD/MM/YY to DD-MON-YY.

Here is a sample against ggsales which is YYYMD but you can see the syntax to convert... DEFINE FILE GGSALES ALPHA_MO/A3= IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '01' THEN 'JAN' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '02' THEN 'FEB' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '03' THEN 'MAR' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '04' THEN 'APR' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '05' THEN 'MAY' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '06' THEN 'JUN' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '07' THEN 'JUL' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '08' THEN 'AUG' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '09' THEN 'SEP' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '10' THEN 'OCT' ELSE IF EDIT(DATE,'$$$$99') EQ '11' THEN 'NOV' ELSE 'DEC'; ORACLE_DATE/A9=EDIT(DATE,'$$$$$$99') | '-' | ALPHA_MO | '-' | EDIT(DATE,'$$99'); END TABLE FILE GGSALES BY ORACLE_DATE WHERE READLIMIT EQ 10 WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 10 ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD ON TABLE SET ASNAMES ON ON TABLE NOTOTAL ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML ON TABLE SET HTMLEMBEDIMG ON ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON ON TABLE SET STYLE * INCLUDE = IBFS:/FILE/IBI_HTML_DIR/ibi_themes/Warm.sty, $ ENDSTYLE END

You will have to play around with the format because I don't know how your field are stored (displayed format is one thing, storage another), but this is a starting point
DEFINE FILE CAR
DTX /I8 = 20200705;
DT /A8DMYY = DATECVT(DTX, 'I8YYMD', 'A8DMYY');
-* The T is to display the 3 characters month in capitals letters (t = mixed case, TR = full month name capital, tr = full month name mixed case)
DTA /D-M-YYT = DT;
TABLE FILE CAR
WHERE READLIMIT EQ 1;
