Invalid format of sysdate in variable

Hi all,
Now i am using "select sysdate from dual" and when i am checking the value in history its giving something like 12-04-2011 AM 10:30:01.0
I dont understand why that .0 (point zero is coming).When i am using sysdate in interface its giving the perfect one.
Please suggest.
Thank You.
DG

Hello DG
You can use SELECT TO_CHAR(SYSDATE, 'DD-MM-RRRR') FROM DUAL
In your interface, map the variable to the column, using to_date(#VARIABLE, 'DD-MM-RRRR') - this is dependent on the format you require.Hope its going to help you.
Thanks

  • Switched video settings on my Mac Mini and now the bloody thing shows "Invalid Format" on my TV (used as monitor for years) and I cannot get it to switch back.

    Switched video settings on my Mac Mini and now the bloody thing shows "Invalid Format" on my TV (used as monitor for years) and I cannot get it to switch back.
    What can I do to get it to work again as more than an overpriced paperweight?

    Hello,
    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), see if you can set a good resolution.

  • INVALID FORMAT ON EXTERNAL MONITOR

    I have an LG LCD TV and a mini-Display>DVI>HDMI cable connecting it to my MacBook Pro and with a misclick (apparently chose the wrong resolution but have since selected several and NO resolution change appears to work) on the display options, after a year or more of fine connection, I get INVALID FORMAT on the TV. I can reboot, reset the display and when I close the laptop > INVALID FORMAT on TV....any ideas?

    So if I understand correctly, with the lid up you can get an image on the LG but with the lid closed you cannot? Is that correct? Yes, OS X is so clever that it stores two different user preferences for resolution under those conditions, e.g. lid up or lid down. But that means you can't change the lid up preference setting from the lid down state, or vice-versa. Sometimes OS X is too smart for its own good.
    One way to fix that is to use screen sharing between two Macs, assuming you have a second Mac at your disposal. From the second Mac, you can control the problem Mac, and change the resolution setting to one that works again with the LG while the MBP's lid is down.
    Another solution is to start in Safe mode (hold down the Shift key through a restart) but there is a catch with this solution because the screen needs to be down. But there is no way to hold the Shift key down with the screen down. Hmm. One clever person on these forums folded up a piece of matchbook cover and placed it on the Shift key, hit the power button to start the MBP and then immediately closed the lid. That did the trick. The matchbook cover held the Shift key down. You can lift the lid once OS X finishes booting. You should be able to tell because the LG screen should be working under conditions of a Safe start.
    Once the MBP is fully booted, with only the external screen active and the lid now lifted, go into Displays preferences and set the resolution to the one you have happily used for a year. Now you should be able to use the LG again with the lid down and not get that "Invalid Format" message.
    A third solution would be to trash the preferences file com.apple.windowserver.plist and that should give a fresh start with the external display. Good luck whichever way you choose.

  • Hdmi invalid format

    Hi
    yesterday for the 1st time I tried to connect my MBP 15" Retina Display to a Sony TV Bravia KDL-26M 4000 through HDMI but it didn't work. I got a 1st messages "Invalid Format"  and after NO signal on TV and the computer monitor became black.
    Today I went to visit a Genius at the Apple Store and as soon as he connected the computer to a TV, with the same cable,  it worked... Just plug'n'play.
    I came home I tried again:
    1.- I connected the HDMI cable with TV Off
    2.- I connected the HDMI cable with TV On
    3.- I disconnected the power cable of the TV and I waited 30"/45" and reconnected
    4.- I turned Off and On the computer
    5.- I plugged In and Out severals time the HDMI cable, and I tried the 2 different ports
    6.- I even tried to change the resolution on the computer but on the MBP Retina Display you can't do to much
    7.- an many more
    but NO success, still got  the messages "Invalid Format"...
    I'd like to add that the other devices connected to the same HDMI ports on that TV are working, means the TV is working
    some help will be appreciate
    thanks

    theres no reason why it should not work, plug in the HDMI cable, select the Source input on LCD(HDMI 1/2), if still no picture on the Mini open System Pref>Display : Resolution> it should show 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p and other lower resolutions, just select 1080p and to your right select 60hz. Hope this helps.

  • External Monitor on MBP (Invalid format error)

    I searched the forums and couldn't find a similar issue so here goes. I have a late 2008 MBP with Snow Leopard connected to a Vizio(MODEL#VM230XVT)LCD 1080P HDTV. I'm trying to use this in "closed lid" mode and using Apple Bluetooth mouse/KB. Because, I didn't want to buy another HDMI cable I currently have it connected via VGA with Apple adapter (DVI>VGA) and a separate audio cable running to TV I have the Bluetooth settings set to wake the device. when I shut the lid the screen goes black either states "No Signal" or "Invalid Format". I have to disconnect the external monitor in order to see the MBP screen again I have tried using several different types of Resolution without success. I notice under the resolution settings it has a "useable screen size underneath it with certain dimensions" so if I set my MBP to max resolution I believe 1400x900 (guesstimate) and set my HDTV to 1920x1080 I think underneath the resolution box I get the "useable screen dimensions which are usually the laptops screen dimension" not sure if this plays apart in anything just wanted to mention it. The TV will display if I leave the lid open on the MBP and have a resolution that exceeds 1024x768 so I'm not sure why it won't display with lid closed as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Then I'd…
    1) Try reinstalling WoW and try to keep as few preference/game files as you can. Granted you need to keep your character and game play files etc etc so just backup the lot and restore as required.
    2) Contact Blizzard and check their forums and see if they know anything about this.

  • Invalid format for Marketing Attributes

    Hi colleagues,
    I have marketing attributes of type NUM 5,2 which are causing erros of type Invalid Format.
    I would like to know where do I change this configuration (path in SPRO/Cutomizing Implementation Guide) in CRM.
    And If someone knows what type generally is used... it seems strange that standard validation is not accepting this...
    thanks,

    Can you please let me know what is this 5,2? Is this a value for the attribute?
    In the Attributes table, you can only mention the decimal place and in the value table you have to maintain the exact number of decimal places as you mentioned in the attributes.
    e.g.
    if you create an attribute say "Frequency of Purchases", Format - Numeric Format, Decimal Places - 2, In that case, you have to maintain a values like 35,02 or 34,00 or 37,59 etc.
    If you want to change the decimal separator say "," to ".", you can do it in CRM system, as follows
    -login to CRM system using sapgui command
    -login with your credentials
    -go to system->user profile-> own data or you can directly use the transaction SU3
    -go to tab "Default" -> change the field "Decimal Notation" as per your liking.
    For this you must have an authorization to change your data or ask your administrator to change the same.
    Hope this helps.

  • Invalid Format

    I am trying to connect my G4 FW with Radeon 9700pro to a 26" HD TV.
    The TV has PC (VGA) slot and I have tried connecting from DVI to VGA adapter from G4 to VGA port on TV. This results in a black screen after the apple screen. The TV tells me there is an Invalid Format.
    I am guessing the resolution and refresh details in preferences are incorrect, however if I connect a spare monitor, set up the display, connect to TV, it works fine. Until I do a restart. Then I get the Invalid Format again.
    Would it be worth opting for a DVI to HDMI cable or would it give me the same results?
    Is there anyone out there that can advise?
    Thanks

    Hi-
    You can get a DVI-D to HDMI cable. That will eliminate the adapter, making a cleaner, more trouble free connection.
    The 9700 has DVI-I, but the DVI-D will connect just fine.
    The DVI-I has integrated analog with the digital, and the DVI-D only takes the digital.
    Analog is of no use with a digital monitor/TV.

  • Ipad 2 says invalid format- sony bravia 32"

    Help! Just got an ipad 2.  Tried to connect to my Sony Bravia 32" tv with av adapter from apple.  I plug it in, and it says "invalid format".  I have setup the tv for HDMI input, blah blah, I've tried so many things.  I have contacted Apple, Best Buy, Geek Squad, and Sony.  Apparantly there are not any professionals out there that can figure this out.  Who ever can solve this, I will pay!  Please help!  And after you have helped, please send address of where I can send check.
    Thank you!!!!!

    I just talked to someone at apple...first we made sure my ipad video settings were for widescreen off nd signal NTSC, which were correct.  Checked connections, checked with an alternate cable, no go.  He would have liked to try another TV with HDMI but we have only one. 
    So the running theory is that it's a faulty AV cable.  He tried to set up an exchange by mail but was unsuccessful, so the plan is to exchange it at an apple store.
    I'll try to remember to updtate this with the results!

  • 32 inch LG "Invalid  Format"

    Had a Sony TV for a while 26 inch and everything worked great! Until it died. Well went out and got an LG, looks amazing at start up with the apple logo and loading circle and then when it goes to auto login, the screen goes black and says invalid format.
    Just to make sure it wasn't my mac or VGA cable, I hooked it up to an old Dell display. Everything was fine.
    My next step was to look through the forums. I found that holding shift on startup puts it in safe mode. Well other then the long startup, it was on the same and still went to the black screen.
    I also tried starting the computer, then plugging in the display. Still no luck.
    is there anything else I can do?
    I know it works, because the startup shows. Looks like its just a setting or something that needs to be changed.
    Thank you for the help

    Ok, well thanks to my lack of patience, I went out and got the HDMI cable.
    The cable you (anyone in this situation) are looking for is sold at walmart for $26. Its made by philips and so far works great. Hooks directly into the port on the mac mini and changes it into a 6 foot HDMI cable. So no more adapter! cheers

  • Sony Bravia 26" "Invalid Format"

    When I first hooked my Mac Mini To the Sony Bravia, using the DVI adapter, it worked OK, but when I increased the resolution I get an Invalid Format message, and I can't change it back. I have tried going back and forth, from the Bravia to my Apple display. No matter what I change the Resolution to on my Apple display, when I go back to the Bravia I get the same message.

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!
    I suspect the reason your Bravia continues to remain blank despite you tweaking settings when using your Apple display is that the mini is 'remembering' the Bravia and the settings used with it, so reverting to those each time the system boots with it connected.
    You could try several things at this point:
    1: With the mini connected to the Bravia, boot into safe mode by holding the shift key down during startup. Safe mode may result in the system reverting to a basic resolution, allowing a display on the Bravia, which you can then reset to something you know worked before with it.
    2: Boot with the mini connected to the Apple display, then without powering down, disconnect that and connect the Bravia.
    3: Boot with no display connected, and wait until sufficient time has passed that you would normally be seeing the desktop, then connect the Bravia. This sometimes forces the system to boot into ultra-low res mode, which may remain after the Bravia is connected, allowing you to reset to a known-good resolution and refresh rate.
    4: Boot with the system connected to the Apple display, and then search for file names containing 'windowserver' (no quotes) using the Finder's Find command in the file menu. Depending on which version of MacOS you're using, you may need to set the 'Kind' to 'system files' and then switch 'don't include' to 'include' instead. Drag all instances of windowserver files which end in '.plist' to the trash and then reboot (there may be 1, 2 3, or even 4 such files). These files contain display settings preferences, so will force the system to forget the Bravia. When booting again, it will create new ones but more importantly, since it will no longer remember the Bravia's settings you used, it should give you a working display.

    After the last update my appletv, when I turn on, the screen of the TV message INVALID FORMAT, as most did not recognize the hdmi port. I've only had TV and the same thing keeps happening, also already restored the apple TV and nothing. Can anyone help?

    So if I understand correctly, with the lid up you can get an image on the LG but with the lid closed you cannot? Is that correct? Yes, OS X is so clever that it stores two different user preferences for resolution under those conditions, e.g. lid up or lid down. But that means you can't change the lid up preference setting from the lid down state, or vice-versa. Sometimes OS X is too smart for its own good.
    One way to fix that is to use screen sharing between two Macs, assuming you have a second Mac at your disposal. From the second Mac, you can control the problem Mac, and change the resolution setting to one that works again with the LG while the MBP's lid is down.
    Another solution is to start in Safe mode (hold down the Shift key through a restart) but there is a catch with this solution because the screen needs to be down. But there is no way to hold the Shift key down with the screen down. Hmm. One clever person on these forums folded up a piece of matchbook cover and placed it on the Shift key, hit the power button to start the MBP and then immediately closed the lid. That did the trick. The matchbook cover held the Shift key down. You can lift the lid once OS X finishes booting. You should be able to tell because the LG screen should be working under conditions of a Safe start.
    Once the MBP is fully booted, with only the external screen active and the lid now lifted, go into Displays preferences and set the resolution to the one you have happily used for a year. Now you should be able to use the LG again with the lid down and not get that "Invalid Format" message.
    A third solution would be to trash the preferences file com.apple.windowserver.plist and that should give a fresh start with the external display. Good luck whichever way you choose.

  • FCP Project Files are all "invalid format?"

    I tried uploading many FCP Project Files with no success. All Project Files run fine in Final Cut Pro.
    Once the upload process begins, the "Jobs in Progress" status spins for about a minute or so. At this point a red exclamation point appears, then a popup window that states:
    "Unable to Analyze Project ... Invalid Format."
    The project file makes it's way into FC Server as a listed asset, however when I choose to "get Info" and do a Search for the associated project files, nothing shows up. The manual mentions or recommends to use file extensions, and I have.
    I read Final Cut Server is supposed to automatically recognize all FCP Project file's associated media. In fact they don't need to be packaged in a folder, etc.
    Lastly I created a brand new FCP Project with a single video clip and a single audio clip after I installed the new ProApps Update. Still no luck.
    Is anyone experiencing the same issue?
    Thanks.

    Paul:
    I experience the exact same issue, yesterday and thought that after Apple released the following update
    http://www.apple.com/support/releasenotes/en/FinalCut_Studio_2.0rn/
    that things may work, but they still dont.
    My guess, is that there may be a version update to Final Cut 6.0.3 to maybe Final Cut 6.5 or something that will allow this direct integration with Final Cut Server. However, note, I was able to success import Final Cut Project exported as Final Cut XML files. I tried this because this was traditionally how it work when FCServer was the Artbox product. My guess is because the Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Server engineers in Apple really don't speak direct to each other, FCServer was realeased with this bug.
