Cicode Programming Reference > Cicode Function Categories > Time and Date Functions Introduction > OLEDateToTime


Converts an OLE DATE value (stored in a REAL) to a CitectSCADA time/date value.

Note: An OLE DATE representing a local time in the daylight savings(DST) to standard time(Std) transition period will be converted to the DST value internally. For example, if the DST transition is 30/3/2003 2:00:00 Std, the local time will behave in the following manner: 2:00:00 DST -> 2:59:59 DST -> 2:00:00 Std. Because of this, a value representing the period between 2:00:00 and 2:59:59 on that date will be interpreted as 2:00:00 DST, not Std.


OLEDateToTime(OLEDate, Local)


The OLE DATE value to convert (stored as a REAL).


0 - OleDate represents a UTC time.

1 - OleDate represents a Local time.

Return Value

Returns a CitectSCADA time/date value.
