Hello experts,

I am trying update one of my oracle table. one field is a datatime. How do I do that?

PPeriodStart - it is datetime

                    OracleTransaction myOracleTransaction = Program.g_DBO.cnDB.BeginTransaction(); ;
                    OracleCommand oraCmd = new OracleCommand();
                    try
                    {
                        sqlText = "UPDATE pc.pcy set " +
                                " PAC = " + PcyAss + ", " +
                                " PPeriodStart = '" + To_date(PPeriodStart, "yyyymmdd") + "', " +
                                " PPeriodEnd = '" + To_date(PPeriodEnd, "yyyymmdd") + "'
                                " WHERE CoverageID = " + CoverageID + "";
                        oraCmd.Connection = Program.g_DBO.cnDB;

You can use bind variables, and add parameters via OracleCommand.Parameters.Add

Somethign like this (untested), I don't have my VS up with a project to test.
