In Denodo Platform 7.0, there has been an improvement to handling data types. The type ‘*date*’ is now deprecated and Denodo Platform 7.0 has new types to represent datetime values.
If you wish to represent date fields as timestamp without a time zone, I would recommend to changing the data type of the column to type ‘*TIMESTAMP*’.
You can refer to the [Data Types for Dates, Timestamps and Intervals](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/vql/language_for_defining_and_processing_data_vql/data_types/data_types_for_dates_timestamps_and_intervals) section of the Virtual DataPort VQL Guide for more information.
Hope this helps!
