Need help with time stamp conversion

I am fetching data from db and storing the data in qvd . in this i am getting values of a date time field as number such as

1426807749 but when i am trying to convert this into time stamp .i am not getting the desired result when i am trying as below

MakeDate(Year(start_time),Month(start_time),Day(start_time)) as Outage_StartTime,        

timestamp(start_time) as start_time,

Your excel file data doesn't come from dates.

Yes thats a date time field

its value should be 2015-03-19 17:29:09 . but when i am getting it in qvd its getting changed in number



try with

Timestamp(25569 + EpochTimeField / 86400)

so in your case 1426807749 would result in a timestamp 03/19/2015 23:29:09

Yes you are right Marco date is fine now but i can see the value as 03/19/2015 11:29:09 PM

the date is fine but when i see in time for same field in the earlier data which i was getting it 5:29:09 PM .. is there anything which is missing here


maybe localization:

=ConvertToLocalTime(Timestamp(25569 + 1426807749 / 86400),'GMT-06:00')

results in 03/19/2015 5:29:09 PM

Does this match your time zone?
