I am using the Oracle9i database. In one of my applications, I need to display time, including milliseconds. The current format is "Hour:Minutes;Seconds". The required format is "Hours:Minutes:Seconds:Milliseconds". Can you help in this issue?
A date datatype does not contain milliseconds. A timestamp datatype stores fractional seconds. If you are using dates you'll have to convert them to timestamp datatypes.
However, if you are using timestamps, try this:
create table ts_info ( ts1 timestamp ) / insert into ts_info (ts1) values (systimestamp) / commit / select ts1, to_char(ts1, 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS.FF') from ts_info /
