MakeDate issue: can't get rid of timestamp

Hi,

I have a strange behavior of the MakeDate function.

In a specific environment, the date is generated with a timestamp.

for example,

MakeDate(2017,1,31) is generating : 31/01/2017 12:00:00 AM.

All the combinations of floor can't remove it.

 

This is really important for me.

Would appreciate your help.

Thanks!

Hi Sunny,
Thanks for your prompt reply!
If you do Timestamp(Date(MakeDate(2017,1,31), 'DD/MM/YYYY'))
then you still see the hour. The issue is that such a date can't be linked to a date without timestamp ..
Am I missing something?

12:00:00 AM is essentially nothing but 0 hours 0 minutes and 0 seconds. If you use the time stamp function... it will show you the hours, minutes and seconds. What is wrong with that?
