    Red face Unanswered: Conversion of Timstamp

    Hi to all,
    I am facing problem with timestamp.
    I have a datatime value like '9/26/2012 5:56:53 AM' and my database field column is timestamp. I want to insert this value into Timstamp column in DB2.

    When possible, you should always insert into TIMESTAMP columns in this format. This will avoid any confusion about client territory date/timestamp formatig:

    '2012-09-26-05.56.53.000000'
