This code snippet shows how to convert string to date.

In Teradata, CAST function can be used to cast string/varchar to date. Format string can be used. For example, B represents blank/space while YYYY represents years.

Code snippet

SELECT CAST('2017-10-15' AS DATE FORMAT 'YYYY-MM-DD');

SELECT CAST('2017 10 15' AS DATE FORMAT 'YYYYBMMBDD');

SELECT CAST('2017 Oct 15' AS DATE FORMAT 'YYYYBMMMBDD');

SELECT CAST('15, Oct, 2017' AS DATE FORMAT 'DD,BMMM,BYYYY');

-- default ansi format

SELECT CAST('2017-10-15' AS DATE);

-- use to_date function

SELECT to_date('2017-10-15', 'YYYY-MM-DD');
