SQL has a function called NOW() which introduce the current date into a
field. However, I don't know very well how this work. I tried to visit a
website giving code examples in SQL... however I find
differences between the SQL language posted in that website and the SQL
language used in LibreOffice Base

For example, at they would suggest me this code to introduce
the current system date and hour into a field of my database (sorry for the
fields are in Spanish)...


NOW( ) 


Okay, that code will fail in LibreOffice Base, and it is SQL ...

I am new to sql myself but, I believe that base auto converts all sql
code into capitals letters. If you used all capitals for the columns in
your table, then you should be fine, else you must define the string
literals with surrounding double quotes. ""

This code will work in LibreOffice Base...


NOW( )


As you may see, the code is exactly the same except that LibreOffice Base
SQL need quotation marks " "  to define the name of fields and tables...

So I was wondering if the SQL from LibreOffice Base change very much from
the original SQL and if we have more notation changes...
