_NowCalc() Problem with format

Recommended Posts


I am not sure I understand your question/issue.

The NowCalc() has a fixed format and is not dependant on any Regional settings in Windows.

Where do you think it could go wrong?

Sorry, slightly misunderstood the question. Now the real answer!

UK machine with all options (that I know of!) set to "UK":

If you save the _NowCalc() value (i.e. 2009/03/15 20:10:25) then _DateDiff works correctly. Saving the _DateTimeFormat( _NowCalc(), 1) value (i.e. 15 March 2009) always returns zero from _DateDiff and sets error 2 (Invalid $sStartDate)
