I have a date field in an Oracle table and I want to insert a new record. I'm trying to insert a date with a time component into this field, but I'm having some problems.
How can I insert this value into the table.
For example, the value is '3-may-03 21:02:44'
To insert a date/time value into the Oracle table, you'll need to use the to_date function. The to_date function allows you to define the format of the date/time value.
For example, we could insert the '3-may-03 21:02:44' value as follows:
insert into table_name
(to_date('2003/05/03 21:02:44', 'yyyy/mm/dd hh24:mi:ss'));
