Just to clarify.  The timestamp datatype is not a date/time.

Quick Start: DOCKER

Sometimes you just need a Quick Start on a topic in order to begin using it.. this is just what you need to know to get up and running with Docker!

hi,


TO_CHAR('20100901', 'MM/YY')
 
This gives the following result:
 
09/10


TO_DATE('20100901', 'YYYYMMDD')
 
This gives the following result:
 
01-SEP-10

refer this links might helps to resolve your issue....

http://www.ehow.com/how_6960278_convert-date-timestamp-oracle-sql.html

for sql i am not sure but this might works for you....

SELECT CAST('0100901' AS DATETIME)

once you have that you can easily perform other functions...
