However in the release notes of 9.2.3 it is mentioned that
- Reject out-of-range dates in to_date() (Hitoshi Harada)
I tried the above statement using 9.2.6 and 9.3.2 in both versions 2013-02-03 is returned instead of rejecting the input. The same is true if e.g. an invalid month is specified: to_date('2013-17-09', 'yyyy-mm-dd').
Does this check need a configuration setting to be in effect?
