I've had complaints about a QVW I have that the ReloadTime() keeps displaying the time *I* last ran the load (before I distributed the QVWs). The QVWs get delivered pretty much empty, and then the user has them loaded in an overnight process that is called with the OCX. Other system variables seem to be fine, but even though the data is clearly updated, the ReloadTime() remains set to the last time I had done the reload while it was under development.
Heard of this? I can just change it to store the date in my own variable at the end of the run - I was just keen on using system variables where I could.
Its not in the script that I use it - its in a text box on a screen. So I was hoping it would be set to the last completed script execution. That was the whole point - so the user could see if the data in the QVW was up-to-date. The problem is, the load has been successfully run, multiple times, and the date on the screen is still from two weeks ago, when I last ran it on my pc.
I realize the easy fix is to just stuff today() into a variable, which is what I will do. I had wondered if I was using the system variable incorrectly (and it sounds like I'm not -- must be another fun "feature" with the OCX).
