Interval type

hello all,

I finally found out that there is a way to correctly enter a “day to second” - interval into a TOAD data grid (+dd hh24:mi:ss.nnnnnn), but is there a way to change this default format to - lets say - a NUMBER of seconds (or hours)?
Another grid option for intervals like “simple numbers are seconds, days, hours” ?

best regards
Hans Hauer

For displaying (and doing math on) an interval, I finally discovered
the Extract function -
extract(second from
+ extract(minute from
+ extract(hour from
+ extract(day from
But that doesn’t help on data entry.
