I don't understand a date field I have. It makes it through two layers of scripting and appears as a date, but in the final model it turns to a number. Can someone tell me why it would change in the final model?
A date is actually a number. With the date() function it can also be given a text format. It will still be a number, but now also has a display text format. So in the load script you can put the date() function around it to give it a date format of your choice: date([EFFECTIVE DATE], 'DD-MM-YYYY') as [EFFECTIVE DATE]
Thanks! I guess I understand that just couldn't figure why in the first two scripts it has the date MM/DD/YYYY format, then in the final model it switched to a number format. How does the same field have a different format as it works its way through several scripts?
