    Hi Shan,

    I guess you are trying to load using a flatfile. if so, then change the date format to YYYYMMDD and then retry the load.

    Bye

    Hi Shan,

    You can also do this in the transfer rules using a conversion routine. Goto transfer rules -> Transfer str/Data structure -> for the date field -> select the conversion "PDATE" and then try the load.

    Also check this post:
