Hi,

I just want to know whether we can mask salary column of number datatype into text,like we used to_char(to_date(<column_name>,'j'),'jsp') in sql?
for example
Name    Salary
SMITH    800

to 
Name         Salary
SMITH     EIGHT HUNDRED


Thanks In Advance.

Regards,
Jay

Yes, exactly the way you posted in your message (i.e. spell the Julian date).
SQL> select ename,
  2         sal,
  3         to_char(to_date(sal,'j'),'jsp') words
  4  from emp
  5  where deptno = 20;

ENAME             SAL WORDS
---------- ---------- -----------------------------------------------
SMITH            1600 one thousand six hundred
JONES            3775 three thousand seven hundred seventy-five
SCOTT            3800 three thousand eight hundred
ADAMS            1900 one thousand nine hundred
FORD             3800 three thousand eight hundred

SQL>

Dear,
for more info.
Select to_char(to_date(5373484,'j'),'jsp') words from dual;
five million three hundred seventy-three thousand four hundred eighty-four

Julian date must be between 1 and 5373484.

Regards,
Irfan

Hi sir,
i appreciate your work . But the point is i want to know is that without using the query can i get the desired results
for example

mask field in property inspector
or
srw.format_mask();
etc.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Jay.

Can you? As far as I can tell, you can't. If you ever find out the opposite, let us know!
