Timeformat or StringExRep help

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I need help converting 19700101000000 to 1970/01/01 00:00:00 formats.

I need to do NowCalc() calculations of Outlook mail received time (19700101000000)

I have done it using Stringsplit and concatenations but it is ugly.

Can someone help with StringRex or maybe StringFormat example ?

Juvigy,

Not sure an SRE would help here - it is more suited to extracting digits from the separators that adding them! ;)

How about this as a solution: ;)

Global $aSeps[7] = ["", "/", "/", " ", ":", ":", ""]

$sString = "19700101000000"
$sDate = ""

For $i = 0 To 6
    $sDate &= StringMid($sString, ($i * 2) + 1, 2) & $aSeps[$i]
Next

ConsoleWrite($sDate & @CRLF & "1970/01/01 00:00:00" & @CRLF)

More elegant that StringSplit I hope. :)

Using StringRegExpReplace():-

;19700101000000 to 1970/01/01 00:00:00

Local $String = "19700101000000"
Local $DateTime = StringRegExpReplace($String, "(\d{4})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})", "\1/\2/\3 \4:\5:\6")
ConsoleWrite($String & " to " & $DateTime & @LF)
