Hi all,

Example of insert string

Insert into saud_log (sysdate(),'some text');

I now want to retrieve the text in date/time order.

Since multiple insert can occur from the same package in a second I want
to fine tune it to milliseconds.

But the below query is complaining about ora-01821 date format not

select TO_CHAR(msg_date, 'HH24:MI:SS.FF4'), msg_desc from saud_log order
by msg_date desc;

but I can run=20
