Hi Doug,

This works for me..

$uid = "MYUSERID";
$inst = "MYINSTANCE";
$conn = ocilogon($uid,$pwd,"$inst");
  echo "unable to connect to database";
$query= "alter session set NLS_DATE_FORMAT = 'DD-MON-YYYY'";
$curs = ociparse($conn,$query)  or die( "Unable to parse query" );
ociexecute($curs)  or die( "Unable to execute query" );
