in thread Code flow not going to while loop

Try explicitly converting the character string to a date with the to_date(...)

Good idea. TO_DATE() is a synonym for the TIMESTAMP_FORMAT. Being clearer, i would use the latter.

Judging from the documentation, he could just go all the way with TIMESTAMP_FORMAT(?, 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS').
