Morinia, the question doesn't make sense: "Num....Oracle".  But my first stab is, "...WHERE colx >= TO_DATE('12/1/2013','MM/DD/YYYY');

Assuming colx to be a non-DATE datatype.  Is '12/1/2013' supposed to be numeric, char, or date?   And to Oracle, DATE records the day and time in a binary format.  TIMESTAMP gets into more precision, and allows time zones.

I'll be around if you wish to try again.
