I have a TEXT string of data sometimes represented as a numeric value which I am forcing to text during the load (See Code Below). For some reason some of the numeric values are being converted to a date by QlikView even though I'm forcing them to text and I cannot figure out why. We have looked at the source data which is stored in a JBA data source and we have looked at the HEX representation of the data and everything looks OK.
Does anyone have an ideas?
EXAMPLE: 0040203 converted to 01/25/10
EXAMPLE: 0040211 converted to 02/02/10
WMSLotTracking: LOAD *, TEXT("Lot Number") AS [Lot Number Text]; SQL SELECT *
FROM DATASOURCE.USA_VIEW_WMSLotTracking where "Lot Year" = 2010;
