Hi Siva,

Yes, that's pretty much correct -- TO_DATE is returning a Date value, which has millisecond granularity -- the fact that you're only seeing a date (with no time component) is due to the way in which the Date is formatted, and not it's internal value.

Hi,

Phoenix TO_DATE is truncating the time portion from date while converting the date. Do I need to change the syntax? As per the documentation syntax seems to be correct. 

0: jdbc:phoenix::/hbase> select "createdate", to_date("createdate", 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss') from "lead" limit 5;
