    Thumbs up Nice One

    What I don't understand is I think I ran this earlier:

    select to_char(to_date(a.value, 'J') + (b.value/60/60/24), 'DD-MM-YYYY HH24:MI:SS')
    from v$instance a, v$instance b
    where a.key = 'STARTUP TIME - JULIAN'
    and b.key = 'STARTUP TIME - SECONDS'

    and it came up with 22:10 ?!

    I type it in now and it comes up with 22:22!

    Guess there must be a suttle difference, but I've closed the SQL *Plus window it was in now.... Oh Well.!

    because problem solving is cool :)

    plus now i know a bit more about dates.

    however getting the time the oracle processes connected seems like an easier way for general use :) just want to select where username is null so you don't have to filter through normal user sessions.

    Well, looking in v$instance in Oracle 8i is the easiest way of all.

    I just wondered how it was done from v$Instance in Oracle 7 - and I too learnt a little more about data handling.

    Why not just run:

    select min(to_char(LOGON_TIME,'dd-mon-yyyy hh:mi:ss pm'))
    from v$session

    That's even easier still for Oracle 7... Although once you have a query written, any can be used just as quickly :)
