date format sas to teradata format

I have this date format in my target system TeraData:

 

SomeDate DATE FORMAT 'YYYY-MM-DD'

 

I am using this transformation datastep before proc append:

 

data Dataset;
	set Dataset;
	DateCaptured=datepart(SomeDate);	
	format SomeDate DATE9.;
run;

Still getting:

 

A SAS value cannot be converted to a Teradata date

 

Any ideas? Thanks!

looks like somedate is in timestamp and  not a date and you have date field in Teradata. try converting it to date, if you want to insert in as date using sasdatefmt during proc append also helps. below is the example of sasdatefmt dataset option  from sas documentation.

 

proc append base=mydblib.internat (sasdatefmt=(dates='date9.'))
   force data=saslib.delay;
run

 

or

 

 

proc append base=mydblib.internat(sasdatefmt=( date1='datetime21.'))

   force data=saslib.delay;
run
