The error message “column ‘sysdate’ does not exist” in PostgreSQL typically occurs when you try to reference a column that doesn’t exist in the table. In PostgreSQL, there is no built-in column named ‘sysdate’.
If you intended to use the current date and time in your query, you can use the
CURRENT_TIMESTAMP functions. Here’s an example:
SELECT CURRENT_DATE; -- Retrieves the current date
SELECT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP; -- Retrieves the current date and time
If you were trying to insert the current date into a table, you can use the
CURRENT_DATE function as a value for the corresponding column. Here’s an example:
INSERT INTO your_table (date_column) VALUES (CURRENT_DATE);
Make sure to replace ‘your_table’ with the actual name of your table, and ‘date_column’ with the appropriate column name where you want to store the current date.
