    Question Find Timezone

    Is there a way to find the timezone in Oracle 9i?

    I need to pass in a date and return 'GMT' or 'BST'

    Refer to NEW_TIME/DBTIMEZONE functions

    from docs:

    Code:
    The following example returns an Atlantic Standard time, 
    given the Pacific Standard time equivalent:
    
    ALTER SESSION SET NLS_DATE_FORMAT = ’DD-MON-YYYY HH24:MI:SS’;
    
    SELECT NEW_TIME(TO_DATE(
    ’11-10-99 01:23:45’, ’MM-DD-YY HH24:MI:SS’),
    ’AST’, ’PST’) "New Date and Time" FROM DUAL;
    
    New Date and Time
