format a string to be a 24 hour date

Please help me - I need to format the following string to be a 24 date. I can get it to work for 12 hours....

TO_DATE('25-Sep-00 11:29:40','DD-MON-YY HH:MI:SS')

but if I try:

TO_DATE('25-Sep-00 18:29:40','DD-MON-YY HH:MI:SS')

it says hour must be between 1 and 12 - I need a 24 hour version.


RE: format a string to be a 24 hour date

Change the format string 'DD-MON-YY HH:MI:SS' to 'DD-MON-YY HH24:MI:SS'.

Hope that helps...

Ever notice that by the time that you realize that you ran a truncate script on the wrong instance, it is too late to stop it?
