Re: problem with date in oracle 10g

I have a doubt. I am writing a function which has to get the greatest date value among the columns in a row. say there are 5 columns. I have to get the greatest date of those 5 columns and display the result.
There might be chance that the date values might be null. In case if some two column values are null and other three have some date values i need to get the greatest of those three.
In case if all are null the result will be null. Please some one help me in writing the function in Oracle to get the greatest date from 7 parameters passed inside which are all of Type Date.
Say the input is
Date1 Date2 Date3 Date4 Date5 Date6 Date7 12/12/2008 01/01/2007 null null 3/3/2006 10/10/2008 null null null null 3/09/2004 null null null 01/04/2006 null null null 4/04/2006 null null
The ouput should be like this
Please some one give me a way for this. Received on Fri Jan 04 2008 - 07:23:37 CST
