You can convert a timestamp to the "yyyy-mm-dd hh24:mi:ss" format in Oracle using the TO_CHAR function. Here is an example query:

1
2
SELECT TO_CHAR(timestamp_column, 'yyyy-mm-dd hh24:mi:ss') AS formatted_timestamp
FROM your_table_name;


In this query:

  • Replace timestamp_column with the name of the column in your table that contains the timestamp you want to format.
  • Replace your_table_name with the name of your table.


The TO_CHAR function takes two arguments: the timestamp column you want to format and the desired format string 'yyyy-mm-dd hh24:mi:ss'. This format string specifies that the output should be in the format "yyyy-mm-dd hh24:mi:ss".


When you run this query, the timestamp values in the specified column will be converted to the "yyyy-mm-dd hh24:mi:ss" format.
