I am inserting data into Oracle dataset using SAS DI.But I can see in oracle that date is automatically converted to 1JAN1960 and 31DEC1959 for each observation.
and this is affecting my front end screen which fetch dataset from oracle(Shows wrong date,1JAN1960).
Could you please suggest what can I do to overcome this problem and give proper date(e.g 02APR2018).
Thanks in advance.

Please provide the code created by SAS DI and an example of your dataset in a data step with datelines. A macro for converting a dataset to data step can be found here: https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Communities-Library/How-to-create-a-data-step-version-of-your-dat...

For some reason, SAS Libname defaults map Oracle date as SAS datetime, which it seems what you encounter here.
Use DBSASTYPE to map it to date instead.
