The to_date function is an Oracle function. If you really want to insert the
date as a string, you could use:
AcctColumnDef TIME_STAMP,Timestamp,formatted-date,'%e %m %Y %H:%M:%S'
which will make an insert clause something like:
insert into ACCOUNTING
(......, ' 5 07 1999 09:05:29')
but you would be better off defining your TIME_STAMP columns as either an
integer or a datetime, because mysql wont do date arithmetic on char columns by
Hope that helps.
