Hi,
I have a Oracle table column as Timestamp(6).
I also have another column that is just Date.

Now my question is: How do I insert a record in this table using the Timestamp(6)...

What are optlions...of ..converting a date to Timestamp???

Do I convert my date to a Timestamp?
Can I just create a new Timestamp(6) --- How?

Let me know...

Thax....

Timestamp ts = new Timestamp(new java.util.Date().getTime());
prepStatement.setTimestamp(1, ts);

Alternatively try directly include the SYSDATE in your insert statement, like:

...
SQLStr = "Insert into mytable (fld1, fld2, myTimeStamp) values (?, ?, SYSDATE) ";

Yes, I tried both examples that are given above, and they worked just fine.

Well, when I do a desc TABLE1;

The timestamp rows I get as:

ROW_UPDT_TMS        TIMESTAMPT(6) ???

What does this mean?

Thanks.

Probably the size of the datatype - 6 bytes long

That would make sense?

But that byte thing is  related to java - I didn't think it was somehow related to oracle Timestamp!!!!


Thanks.

That's absolutely right but in terms of declaring the Oracle Timestamp!!
I didn't know that...

Thanks.
