Hi ,

I am having trouble scheduling a job to run on the 1st of every quarter even if 1st of the month is Saturday.
Here is what I am working with:

BEGIN
DBMS_JOB.CHANGE
(20,
null,
null,
trunc(NEXT_DAY(ADD_MONTHS(TRUNC(SYSDATE , '''Q'''),3)-1,'SATURDAY'))+(06/24)+(00/1440)
);
commit;
end;
/

ERROR at line 9:
ORA-01899: bad precision specifier
ORA-06512: at line 2

Your help is greatly appreciated.
