in reply to NOW SQL portability


SQL portability can be a real red herring, given the variations found across the range of implementations. You have to ask yourself how many different flavors of SQL you want to try to support. You may have no choice but to have slightly different code bases for each flavor.

I don't know if there is a portable way for getting "today's date". Oracle uses "sysdate"; Informix uses "current...". MSSQL and Sybase may actually use the same function, given their common heritage.
