    Unanswered: DB2 LUW 10.5 on Linux - Need help with DATE datatype

    I have defined many columns in my tables (DB2 10.5) on Linux as DATE. When we insert into them, the result is a TIMESTAMP.

    Why do I see TIMESTAMP in a date column?

    It was actually my mistake ...
    I was using a Microsoft editor and it is showing the date in timestamp format but the table is correct

    Can you give examples? Also show the DESCRIBE for the table?

    One possible reason is Oracle compatibility mode.
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.
