Subj:   Finding the earliest combination of separate DATE and TIME fields
From:   Simon Bloomer

Hi all

I was wondering what would be the easiest method of finding the earliest combination of separate DATE and TIME fields. Currently I am using the following but surely there must be a more elegant way? Essentially what this is doing is subtracting some known date (in this case 2000/01/01) from the date in question and converting the result into seconds


     MIN ((startdate - date '2000-01-01') * 86400 +
     substr(starttime,1,2)*3600 + substr(starttime,4,2)*60  +
