Hello, I am trying set the date format while creating the metadata for an excel sheet, but I'm not able to find the correct format for the date of this type "06-DEC-15 11.38.40.000000000 PM". can u please help me in setting up the date format for this type.
I see from your scenario that you are trying to add an excel sheet as a metadata onto your Talend Metadata repository. Well while adding metadata onto talend especially excel sheets you must be quite careful...the reason being when you view your data in the preview tab(Step 2 of Adding Metadata to repository) it will show in the format of timestamp with time zone... pls be advised... while you are in the last step of the metadata..while you are defining columns and their data-types.. pls define the date column to their certain format let it be "dd-mm-yyyy" or "yyyy-MM-dd" or etc....
and always pls check for the date format in the excel sheet as well...even though you have given a certain format say "dd-mm-yyyy" then pls define the same in the metadata as well.. if not you will face issues while transforming the data.
Pls reach out if anything is unclear.
