OraIntervalYM Object


The OraIntervalYM object provides methods for operations on the Oracle INTERVAL YEAR TO MONTH.This data type represents a period of time in terms of years and months.


The OraIntervalYM object is created by the OraSession.CreateOraIntervalYM method or by calling the Clone method on an existing OraIntervalYM object.

An OraIntervalYM object can be bound using ServerType ORATYPE_INTERVALYM. This allows the binding of a value to a parameter associated with an Oracle INTERVAL YEAR TO MONTH data type in a SQL or PL/SQL statement.

When binding a string associated with an INTERVAL YEAR TO MONTH data type, the ServerType must be specified to be a string type (for example, ORATYPE_VARCHAR2, ORATYPE_STRING), and the string must be in the format specified by YEARS-MONTHS.
