Not specifically related to any application, but rather, using the supplied SQL functions available to any app. Use the TO_CHAR function to format your date output:

SQL> SELECT TO_CHAR(sysdate,'Month DDTH,YYYY') FROM dual;

TO_CHAR(SYSDATE,'MO



April 13TH,2006

The following document shows all of the format models for date values handed to the TO_CHAR function:

HTH,
