Unfortunately there isn't an user/oracle function to display milliseconds. But there is a function in the DBMS_UTIL package which allow you to see the time in hundreds of seconds. The function name is get_time.

To explain with more detail I need to know what kind of use are you thinking for milliseconds (i.e. get the current time, update a field, etc.).

You are right. Let me explain I need to display time in my forms menu to as there are many updates per second and therefore milliseconds is only way to keep track of.

Why don't you try to develop a trigger in the tables involved on your "updates" ?

There you can use the dbms_util.get_time function.
