You can use SORT product for whatever formatting to be done on unloaded dataset before loading.

you could also format the data properly with the initial unload.

Oracle is rather sophisticated. I would be suprised if the unload utility for oracle does not have an option for unloading for MS-SQL or DB2 format.

otherwise, use sql in the unload to reformat your timestamp with a colon.

I would speak to whoever maintains your other database system.
