Pervasive PSQL


I am trying to load a date field from a Pervasive database via an odbc adapter. It comes in as the æ character and I can't convert it to a date type. Would love to hear if anyone has experience with this.

Hi @lionzandvliet ,


Could you please post an image of date? Is it possible to convert it to a date format via M-code?


Please check if helps:

Solved: Text.Select - No Emojis but keep æ ø å

Solved: Using a defined list in function Text.Select
