Oracle date type is ODBC datetime type.

If this is not an Oracle question, this has nothing to do here.

sorry for unknown about that. so oracle date type is odbc datetime type. is that default ? can we change that ?
because i have develop ERP program using Mysql,Postgresql and Sql Server.

and I just known recently that oracle standard edition one is only $149 per named user max 5. so it is make interesting to change my database using oracle .

it is true that oracle brand name is more important then free mysql or postgre. because customer only known that oracle unbreakable.

btw, thanks for explanation may be i should adjust my prog. script became datetime. but it will takes time .

best regards for senior member.

Oracle XE is free (but has limits).

Perhaps you'd be interested in Oracle 10g Express Edition (XE) which is free. It has its limitations (up to 4GB user data, 1 CPU, ...); as we don't know what kind of an application you are building, XE might be a right choice for you.
