    Hi

    When i run a query in sqlplus with set timing on

    i get

    Table created.

    Elapsed: 00:28:1696.52

    how do i interpret this ? is it approx 30 minutes or 28 minutes ?

    what does the value 1696 represet in the seconds column

    1696/60 = 28.2666 = 28min 16sec.

    Your SQL*Plus version probably doesn't match the server version.

    HH:MM:SS.SS is the format

    then what's 1692.52?

    1696/60 = 28.2666 = 28min 16sec
    Already the result has 28 as mins then 1696/60 once again gives 28.2666, are you sure they are minute

    Looks like your nls setting may be using the ss.ff format.

    FF [1..9]
    Fractional seconds; no radix character is printed (use the X format element to add the radix character). Use the numbers 1 to 9 after FF to specify the number of digits in the fractional second portion of the datetime value returned. If you do not specify a digit, then Oracle uses the precision specified for the datetime datatype or the datatype's default precision.

    Examples: 'HH:MI:SS.FF'

    Gotcha!

    the format set as 'hh:mi.ff4:ss' could get you the above "00:28:1696.52" where 28.1696 is the mins. is that right!!!!!!

    Good work dbtoo!
