Converting Date functions

  Asked By: Lorenzo    Date: Dec 28    Category: MS Office    Views: 1157
  

I am trying to create a SQL statement in Excel and my update statement
is as follows:


UPDATE M_DIMENSION1206294 SET A_WEEKNUM = 117 WHERE A_WEEK = '38500';


Unfortunately, I am trying concactenate a Date Field into the
formuala, but Excel is converting date to a numericac value of 38500.

That date is actually sitting in cell A2.

How can I edit my statement to use the date instead of the numeric
value?

Just use Format(<cell value>,"yyyy-mm-dd") - or whatever format is appropriate
for your database.

Dates are always stored internally as numbers like this. You need to format
them appropriately for output.
