LoadData ChangeSet with "NOW" in the data

You may be able to try defaultValueComputed="‘NOW’" (note that there are single quotes around the NOW inside the double quotes)


Hello Nathan,

Thank you for the reply. I should have been more specific, sorry. This column has nothing to do with dates. It is a text field with arbitrary text data in it. So what is happening is it reads in the text ‘NOW’ and translates that to a date, which then causes it to choke due to the size of the data vs the size it is expecting to put in the column:

I am trying to load data in to my database with the loadData changeset. One of the rows in my data has the word ‘NOW’ for one of the values in a column. Liquibase is then converting that to the ‘NOW’ current time keyword instead of the string “NOW”.

Is there a way to escape this value? I tried quotes around it and that did not help.
