Hello Friends,
I am trying to retrieve info from the Oracle DB, with a SQL statement which looks something like:
Select * from tblORA
where tblDate = ('myDate','MMDDYYYY')
Can myDate be of type String? I am trying to retrieve a date
of String type from another page and insert that date into
the SQL statement.
What would be a good way so that the Date that I retrieve from
a previous page is of correct type and be included in the SQL statement.
Thanks a bunch
-Rao
