DateTime Format Conversion in a File

Hi Pals.

I have a file which is in the below format.


All the fields are delimeted by "," comma

I need to convert the first field time format to MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS
Which is required later to load from SqlLoader.

Present format is YYYY/MM/DD-HH24:MI:SS
Required Format is MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS

Please Help me out...
Quick Response would be very helpfull...

Thanks & Regards

One way:
#Present format is YYYY/MM/DD-HH24:MI:SS
#Required Format is MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS

awk -F, '{
           split($1,dateval, "-")
           split(dateval[1], date, "/");
           value=sprintf("%s/%s/%s %s",date[2],date[3],date[1],dateval[2])
           for(i=2; i<=NF;i++)
                {printf(",%s", $i)};
        }' filename

# output
10/15/2007 12:04:24,'CRLift','TH-42PX75U','BestBuy','W01P0207',22,15,'User1'

This one should be ok for you.

echo 2007/10/15-12:04:24 | 
sed 's/\([0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]\)\/\([0-9][0-9]\)\/\([0-9][0-9]\)\(-\)\(.*\)/\3\/\2\/\1 \5/'

var=`echo $file | cut -d"-" -f1`
var2=`echo $file | cut -d"-" -f2`
var3=`echo $file | cut -d"-" -f3`
value1=`echo $var | cut -d"/" -f1`
