    Unhappy

    I need to write an SQL query for the same ..

    I am ableto retrive values between two dates '2009-07-15' and '2009-07-16' but
    not when the two dates are same but time is different....

    select * from tbl_abc where trunc(StartTime) between to_date('2009-07-15', 'YYYY-MM-DD') and to_date('2009-07-16', 'YYYY-MM-DD');

    but this will not work for same dates ....

    well you have added trunc which strips off the time part

    If you subtract one date from another you will get the time difference in days.
    Then multiply by 24 and you will get the time difference in hours, etc.

    SYS AS SYSDBA> select (sysdate-(sysdate-5/24))*24 from dual;

    (SYSDATE-(SYSDATE-5/24))*24
