I'd like to insert (table) data into an Oracle database. The data contains datetime variables with timezone information which should be inserted into a oracle table with type timestamp with timezone.
sqlwrite (or similar) function can add/transform datetime to timestamp (oracle), but not to timestamp with timezone. The only workaround I've found is a direct linewise exec insert sql statement (insert into table () values ().... ) whereas datetime timezone is set to UTC and is formatted like
strcat('to_timestamp_tz(''', datestr(tbl.TS ,'dd.mm.yyyy HH:MM'), ' 00:00'', ''dd.mm.yyyy HH24:MI TZH:TZM'')')
Not very elegant and fast...
I'm using R19b.
Thanks for any hints...
