_DateDiff with native SQL timestamp


Recommended Posts

$sMsg = '2017-09-04 18:42:38'
_DateDiff ('h', $sMsg , _NowCalc() )

I could not find anything recent, so I thought I would put it here.

The '2017-09-04' date is a typical SQL timestamp. The _NowCalc() is a typical AutoIt date calculator.  Much to my surprise and delight, _DateDiff works correctly with these two dates without any prior conversion.

I am guessing that internally the separating characters (-/) get ignore. :)

Does save on additional code. :)



Why is the snake in the sky?

See _DateTimeSplit for acceptable DTM formats.
