Hi Praveen,

CHAR function is used to convert various types of data like numbers, date and time to character data.

To convert date or time to character type we need to use 2 arguments as folloows...

CHAR(date/time,'format');

The second argument specifies the format of the date to be converted.

Thanks,
Reddy.
