Hi

I have the following an its not working and not sure why.

select data_center, group_name, count(*)
  from ( select data_center, group_name from runinfo_history
         where data_center = 'DEV'
            and (ended_status = '16' or ended_status = '32')
            and START_TIME >= to_date('20131010100000001','YYYYMMDDHH24MISS')
            and END_TIME <= to_date('2013112423595959','YYYYMMDDHH24MISS')
        ) as list
group by data_center, group_name;


It comes back "not properly ended"


Thanks for the help.

Mike

That fixed the issue with the "as" but now I am getting

ORA-01830: date format picture ends before converting entire input string
01830. 00000 -  "date format picture ends before converting entire input string"

Do I have the date "to_date" wrong?

Thanks

Mike

I don't understand why the question was closed as it was.

the accepted answer is a duplicate of what was already posted, and the second half of your syntax error wasn't even addressed in that post

neither should have been accepted as both contain errors ... :)

suggest an easier comparison ?

and START_TIME >= to_date('20131010', 'YYYYMMDD')
and END_TIME < to_date('20131125', 'YYYYMMDD')

Since the values are erroneous, we don't know what the values are supposed to be in order to recommend valid logic rearrangement.

I don't understand why the question was closed as it was.

Apart from that, if accepting & closing this answer like this, a split would have been more than fair as sdstuber replied 3 minutes before!!
If you do not want to split, then please give him the entire points...

sure, in that case I think I'd change the bottom range, because I'm assuming the ending "01" is supposed to be there and the thought is to exclude the second of midnight

and START_TIME > to_date('20131010', 'YYYYMMDD')
and END_TIME < to_date('20131125', 'YYYYMMDD')

so, I think that's the most likely translation of what the syntax was "intended" to be;
but it seems kind of odd to me and not likely what it "should" have been

either way, doesn't resolve what seems to be an inappropriate close
