I am connecting to Netezza. I am getting a NOTE in log for few datetime columns.

  NOTE: The data value for column DATE_W (DATE_W) was truncated or was out of range 390 times when retrieving
                  that data from the DBMS.


What are the ways to pull date fields correctly which are out of range in SAS.


Thank you


The only option would be to read these dates in as a character column rather than a date column. You get this message as the Netezza dates fall outside of the range of the years 1582 to 20,000 AD that SAS supports:


You should check what the date is in Netezza itself and then decide what to do with them. For example if they are dates of birth then they are obviously wrong and should be corrected.
