Re: InstantDB: to_date function


Gerald

In InstantDB, insert values are not general purpose expressions. Selects are
allowed in expression however, so you could do something like:

insert into titi select to_date('01-01-2000','dd-mm-yyyy') from anytable
where id=1

Subject: InstantDB: to_date function


Hi,

I've some troubles with the to_date function. Here is a small sample code
for commsql
Enter SQL string, or . to exit
create table titi(d date)
main create table titi(d date)
Enter SQL string, or . to exit
insert into titi values('1999-12-31 59:59:999')
main insert into titi values('1999-12-31 59:59:999')
Enter SQL string, or . to exit
insert into titi values(to_date('01-01-2000','dd-mm-yyyy'))
main insert into titi values(to_date('01-01-2000','dd-mm-yyyy'))
main insert into titi values(to_date('01-01-2000','dd-mm-yyyy'))
Don't understand SQL after: "insert"
Expected: "}" found: "("
java.sql.SQLException: insert into titi
values(to_date('01-01-2000','dd-mm-yyyy'
))
Don't understand SQL after: "insert"
Expected: "}" found: "("
        at db.SQLProg.execute(SQLProg.java:214)
        at jdbc.idbStatement.execute(idbStatement.java, Compiled Code)
        at commsql.main(commsql.java, Compiled Code)

I create a simple table called titi with a date column. When I insert a date
using JDBC format (seen in this mailing list), it works. When I use to_date
function, it doesn't...

The same SQL script works well on an Oracle database.

I'm using InstantDB v3.13

Thanks for your help
Gerald.
