Agreed. Once whatever combination of to_char, trunc and round is seen to give the desired results it can be made into a function based index to give better performance.

The problem is I don't see how anything is really going to work locic-wise. The OP is trying to join an "orders" table to an audit log table based on time stamp information. What happens when two orders come in at the same time?
