I need to get the numeric values of the day, month, and year from a date column. Is there any way to do this other than paarsing out the value? I need it so I can determine which of our fiscal quarters an employee was hired in, and how many days he or she has left to work in the fiscal year.

Thanks in advance,
Dave Skowron

in pl/sql
if needed in sql select stmnt, put code into
server side function and just call it to do parse

day_val := to_number(to_char(date_val,'dd'));
month_val := to_number(to_char(date_val,'mm'));
year_val := to_number(to_char(date_val,'yyyy'));

create or replace function date_to_num(indate in date, inval in varchar2) return number is
return to_number(to_char(indate,inval));
-- inval is mm or dd or yyyy
