Please read & follow posting guidelines as stated in URL above

With Oracle characters between single quote marks are STRINGS

'this is a string, 2008-0522, not a date'

When you want DATE data type use TO_DATE function.

thanks for that!
i think i didn't make that clear.
here is the thing:
the query is to display the property those has been sold
in the last month.
so i need to check the purchase_date of the property.
i don't know how write the statement for that.
something like
select property_id
from property
where purchase_date between ... and ....

do u know how to write that query?
thanks agagin.

Have a look at ADD_MONTHS, TRUNC and LAST_DAY functions.
