How can i use oracle function TO_CHAR in denodo

I need to convert NUMBER to STRING, I tried using " cast(data_type, value) " but it's showing invalid. Does denodo have any inbuilt function similar to TO_CHAR() as in Oracle.

Hi, In virtual data port, text data type represents a character strings. I was able to convert a value of numeric data type to string by using the Cast function available in VDP. Syntax: cast(cast-type, expression) Example: cast('text',employee_id) You can also refer the section “Type Conversion Functions” in DENODO VIRTUAL DATAPORT 6.0 ADVANCED VQL GUIDE for more examples. Hope this helps.
