RE: how to create a View

What version of PSQL are you using?  
What have you tried so far?  Are you getting errors?  
A simple view would be:

Certified Pervasive Technician

9 and no errors

RE: how to create a View

For converting the data, you might be able to use something along the lines of:


TIMESTAMPADD ( SQL_TSI_DAY, "table name"."", CONVERT('0001-01-01', SQL_TIMESTAMP) ) -1
