Hello list,
Three questions about the Date datatype. Thanks in advance for your help.


  1.. In SQLPlus, how can I display the full value of a date column? I mean 
date and time and not only the date. 
  2.. I'm trying the EXTRACT function. Year, month and day worked fine but not 
the hour, minute and second. How can I do it? 
  3.. I tried to add a numeric value from another field to a date column and it 
worked for the date. Is it possible to do the same thing with the time?
