yyyy from timestamp - IBM DB2

Hi Can anyone tell me how to derive "yyyy" from a timestamp column in db2? Something like to_char(sysdate, 'yyyy') ... in oracle. I have to oracle-like to_char function but its very slow. If the column is DATE then I can use char(date, USA) and then substr of 'yyyy', but I am not sure how can I do this with timestamp. Please help Thanks V Prakash...

    Hi

    Can anyone tell me how to derive "yyyy" from a timestamp column in
    db2? Something like to_char(sysdate, 'yyyy') ... in oracle. I have to
    oracle-like to_char function but its very slow.

    If the column is DATE then I can use char(date, USA) and then substr
    of 'yyyy', but I am not sure how can I do this with timestamp.

    Please help

    Thanks

    You want the SQL Reference.

    Look at the YEAR function

    Hi V, you can use year function to do that. Something like year(sysdate)
    will give a integer value of the year.
