Oracle: ORA-01843: not a valid month

  • Hi

    I have the following query which works fine in Oracle SQL Developer. When I try to use it in Microsoft PBI I get the following error "ORA-01843: not a valid month".

    Does anyone have any ideas on why?

  • Well, considering that PL-SQL and T-SQL are different especially from a perspective of built-in functions, this will not work.

    I copied and pasted this code into SSMS, and checked the syntax. Here are the errors:

    Msg 195, Level 15, State 10, Line 11

    'substr' is not a recognized built-in function name.

    Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 49

    Msg 195, Level 15, State 10, Line 53

    'to_char' is not a recognized built-in function name.

    subst in PL-SQL is SUBSTRING in T-SQL

    to_char would be CAST OR CONVERT in T-SQL

    These did not show as an error, but these are also specific to PL-SQL:

    extract(hour from(d))

    If you assassinate a DBA, would you pull a trigger?
    To properly post on a forum:

  • You might get better answers if you made it more clear what your circumstances are and what you want to achieve. After all you posted your question in a forum that is dedicated to two ancient versions of SQL Server, i.e. SQL Server versions 7 and 2000 from the previous millenium. 🙂

    I'm assuming this isn't really related to those versions of SQL Server, but rather that you didn't find a forum with a better fit.

    Could you please clarify, if this is about a query you want to send from a Microsoft Power BI client to an Oracle database server?
