Re: Function Reload Time()

Add an offset for +7 hours the time difference to Germany.

= 'Updating Date   ' & Date( (reloadtime() +(7/24)), 'DD-MM-YYYY  hh:mm')

(7/24) adds 7 hours to the reloadtime

try this

= 'Last refreshed on - ' & ReloadTime() &'  '&TimeZone()

Out put : Last refreshed on - 8/15/2013 9:34:18 AM  GMT-06:00

Re: Function Reload Time()

Use date(reloadtime(), date format string)  The date command will format datetime values

e.g. date(reloadtime(), 'DD MMM YY  hh:mm')

Re: Function Reload Time()

Hi Omar,

Can you give exact format/Example in what you wanted in Germany ?

Re: Function Reload Time()

='Last Updated '&Date(ReloadTime())&CHR(10)

&Hour(NOW()-ReloadTime())&' Hour(s),'&CHR(10)

&Minute(NOW()-ReloadTime())& ' Minute(s) and'&CHR(10)

&Second(NOW()-ReloadTime())& ' Second(s) ago' & CHR(10)&

'By '&Capitalize(OSUser())

Re: Function Reload Time()

The dateformat string is case sensitive

     MM      is months as a number

     MMM      is months as text

     mm      is minutes

what result do you get if you do not have any formatting and just use

     = reloadtime()

in a text object?

Re: Function Reload Time()

if i understand this correctly, you need server reload time shown as local time in Germany...if yes, try the following - may need to be modified slightly for time difference:

='Server Time '& chr(10)&ReloadTime() & chr(10)&TimeZone()

For local time in Germany -

='Local Time '&chr(10)&Timestamp(ReloadTime()+.25)

0.25 days (6 hours) is the time difference between your server time and Germany local time.

Re: Function Reload Time()

Hi everyone this the format that I have:

Is the time in United States, when I was updating put the Date hour, minutes and Second but

of United State. then what I need is the same BUT with date, hour, minutes for Germay

for example taken this example the date in USA is: 05/03/2014 11:04:45 AM and

what I need is: 05/03/2014   18:40:30  time Germany



Re: Function Reload Time()

Maybe create a variable at the end of your load script:

Let vReloadTimeGermany = localtime('Berlin');
