fornmat a datetime


hi all

can someone tell me how i format a datetime field so it's like this

'Thurday 22 June 2006'

many thanks

RE: fornmat a datetime


thanks - why do i get a massive gap between the month and year?

"Thursday  22 June      2006"

RE: fornmat a datetime


Because Month is padded. Suppress the extra spaces.


select to_char(now(),'Day DD FMMonth YYYY');


RE: fornmat a datetime


i'll do it like this, but would be interested to know why there's a gap

    TO_CHAR(now(), 'Day') || ' ' ||
    DATE_PART('DAY', now()) || ' ' ||
    RTRIM(TO_CHAR(now(), 'Month'))|| ' ' ||
    DATE_PART('YEAR', now()) AS date
