Date Format Change

Custom Data Format for dates in OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0 

I have seen lot of post in OTN forum, How to change Date format in report in OBIEE 11g .By default the date is displayed as it is specified in user’s locale definition file which contains setting for displaying language, date format etc. We can change that using Custom Data Formatting.

Step:1:

In my report data for date column like below.


 Step: 2








Change the Custom Date Format to DD-MMM-YYYY. The results are displayed as following:



We can separate the date using characters such as slash (/) or hyphen (-).  Here is a short list of formats used for date display:


[FMT:dateShort]
Date in the locale's short date format
[FMT:dateLong]
Date in the locale's long date format
DD
Day of the month in two-digit format (01)
DDD
Abbreviated name of the day of the week in the user's locale (Mon for Monday)
DDDD
Full name of the day of the week in the user's locale (Monday)
M
Numeric month (1 for January)
MM
Numeric month in two digit format (01 for January)
MMM
Abbreviated name of the month in the user's locale (Jan)
MMMM
Full name of the month in the user's locale (January)
YY
Year in two-digit format (01 for 2001)
YYYY
Year in four- digit format (2001)


Using Evaluate function method for change  the date format see this post.
