Use PL/SQL. Read the long into a varchar2 and then perform a to_date on the varchar2 variable into a date variable. You can put this into a user function if desired.

	Oracle stores the High Value of a Partition in a Long column. I
swear I've searched the friendly web, and I just can't figure out how to get this long column converted back to a date or char I can take a char to a date.         

        If it exists on the web, please tell me. I don't know why this is so hard to find.
