We have a UDF field which is populated by the candidate on the recruiting side in a form.  The input is a DATE. There is no other choice on how to bring in the date and comes over as TEXT into OBIEE in the candidate UDF.   Like this --->>>  04-06-2015   I cannot use this to perform calculations with other dates for aging.  How can I convert a text field to date?  I found this but it did not work....

Also, what is the formula to do aging between 2 dates in OBIEE?  I want to calculate the number of days between 2 dates in the report.  Example: "current_date" and "consent_date"  (how many days in between)

Howdy, Stranger!
