How can I get the current date AND time ? I have experimented, but no success, because I am only getting the date and not the time.
Can someone help me out?

(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP and or TO_DATE(sysdate,'dd/mm/yyyy hh:mi:ss')   )

This is what I tried :


INSERT INTO MYTABLE (TABLENAME, DATETIME) VALUES ('Test',TO_DATE(sysdate,'dd/mm/yyyy hh:mi:ss'))
