Hi,

I have a column of datatype NCLOB and it returns a date!!!!(It not me who did the design).

I need this date to be returned in the format of 'dd/mm/yyyy', but it is returning me in the format of 'mm/dd/yyyy'.

Can anyone please tell me if there is any direct conversion to date format that I want from NCLOB?

I did try to_date() function, but unsatisfactory results Sad
Please tell me the solution.Its very urgent.
