In this example, the current timestamp is:

            Current TimeStamp(6)
--------------------------------
2010-03-09 19:23:27.620000+00:00

The following statement converts the DATE value '2010-03-09' to a TIMESTAMP value, where the time zone displacement is based on the time zone string, 'America Pacific'.

SELECT CAST(DATE '2010-03-09' AS TIMESTAMP(0) AT 'America Pacific');

The result of the query is:

         2010-03-09
-------------------
2010-03-09 08:00:00
