Hi,
I need to convert 2 digit year to 4 digit year using DB2. Are there any inbuilt functions or db2 sqlpl procedures available? If not, if any code exists, could it please be shared?

Thank you very much.

Hi Vasif,

You can try,
Code:
SELECT '20'||twodigityearcolumn from creator.tablename;


to add century and make it 4 digit. You need to have some logic to guess whether its 19 or 20.

Thanks,
Sushanth
