It may sound a silly question but I am trying to achieve the following.


-- How to change the data format reported by the database? currenty the date is reported as MM/DD/YYYY with the timestamp by the database,

--I want to report it as YYYY/MM/DD and without the timestamp.

Any suggestions?

Dates have no format, to give them one:

to_char(date_column,'YYYY/MM/DD')

or
set NLS_DATE_FORMAT.
