    It should be
    select to_char(sysdate,'dd-mon-yy hh:mi:ss pm') from dual;

    Hi

    Instead of "mm" use "mi"
    mm for month and mi for minutes.

    Hy,

    I think that was not answers you asking for.
    And if I am wright, you should change (set) time on
    the comuter where database is. Because SQL function sysdate reading system date and time from the computer where database is instaled, not from your OS.
    I hope this is answer you looking for.

    And if i am wrong.
    This is from manual:

    Hi

    I am going to disagree with following
    Minute (0-59).
    MM

    I have tried it
    select to_char(sysdate,'hh:MM:ss') from dual;
    MM will give you month in numeric form. Ex. for Feb. 02

    If I am wrong then let me know.

    Thanks.
