Microsoft Access SQL to calculate the time from midnight in minutes, seconds, etc.

Filed under: Access,Database,Sample code,Software Development — mariojump @ 10:00 pm

MS Access SQL to find the time from the midnight.

MS Access’s timestmap values consist of integer part (number of days from
the certain date), and fractional part (e.g. 6am = 6/24 =0.25 day
from midnight.).

By using this, we can run a query like:

my_timestamp_column – INT(my_timestamp_column) AS Time_From_Midnight,
/* note: date part will be lost */

INT((my_timestamp_column – INT(my_timestamp_column))*24*60*60) AS

INT(INT((my_timestamp_column – INT(my_timestamp_column))*24*60*60 ) /
60) AS Minutes_From_Midnight

FROM my_table_with_timestamp;

There are occasions we need to export or import data from/to Oracle.

These are sample command line inputs to do so.  The database can be local (localhost, or remote server.

$ exp db_username1/password_of_username1@ TABLES=(db_username1.%) FILE=exportfile1.dat exportfile2.dat exportfile3.dat exportfile4.dat FILESIZE=1024MB INDEXES=n LOG=logfile.log

$ imp system/password_of_system@ FROMUSER=(db_username) TOUSER=(maybe_another_db_username) FILE=./exportfile1.dat INDEXES=n GRANTS=y STATISTICS=RECALCULATE LOG=importlog.log
