Here's a simpler approach to get the answer in days:

column "Days" format 9999;
select name "DB name", log_mode,
to_char(startup_time,'Dy DD-Mon-YY fmHH:fmMI:SS am') "Started",
sysdate - startup_time "Days"
from v$database, v$instance;

Hi,
 Try the below SQL select ..

select
to_char(LOGON_TIME,'Dy dd/mm/yyyy fmHH:fmMI:SS am')
from
v$session
where
SID = 1;


Thanx,
Ammar
