Getting a date and time from Oracle by Glowball
Posted: 14 Oct 01

Sometimes no matter what you try you can't get Oracle to give you a date and time from your database.  Even SYSDATE on its own won't work.  Try this code!

<cfquery name="get" datasource="myDSN">
SELECT TO_CHAR(theDate,'MM-DD-YYYY HH:MI:SS AM') "formattedDate" FROM tablename
</cfquery>
<cfoutput query="get">
    #get.formattedDate#<br>
</cfoutput>

This assumes the table is named tablename and has a column named theDate.
