    Hi,

    You can use dbms_utility.get_time or query from v$timer synonym
    to get time in milliseconds. This is for calculating time
    difference. Date field is stored upto the precision of second.

    In Oracle 9i is possible another way.

    hop this helps.

    Regards

    Hello,

    In Oracle 9i, a new datatype by the name of : TIMESTAMP gives date&time with miliseconds (fractional seconds).

    Best Regards

    There are 5 new data types:

    TIMESTAMP
    TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE
    TIMESTAMP WITH LOCAL TIME ZONE
    INTERVAL YEAR TO MONTH
    INTERVAL DAY TO SECOND
