Infospoke extract - 0calday format

Hi,

I am extracting the data from the cube to file using infospoke.

when I browse the cube I see 0calday has mm/dd/yyyy format.

But after extraction I see in the file has yyyymmdd.

Actually I would like to have mm/dd/yyyy format in the file.

Thanks in advance

    Are you extracting into CSV/EXCEL? If so, manipulate the file with VBA.

    Let me know if you need some more help on that.

    Regards,

    I am extracting to the application server (Unix) using logical file name with data format ASCII.

    Hi:

    Since internal date format is YYYYMMDD, that is how infoSpoke is going to extract the date.

    You can change it using BAPI in the Infospoke.

    You have to create a new Infoobject type c, length 10 and add it in the targetr structure.

    Then, write code to populate that I-Object from

    yyyymmdd --> mm/dd/yyyy.

    Use the new infoobject in the final extract.
