Convert date and time in decimal characters

Hi,
I need to convert the date ad the time in decimal characters.
Any idea to do this ?
TNX in advance for your help
Alex

Alex,
Please find the attached example. It displays the current time in time format, and it also has separate numeric indicators for hours, minutes, seconds.
If this is not what you were trying to do, please elaborate on your question.

  • Function module to convert date and time

    Hi ,
    Requirment is i want to create a file in the application server.So the file name should be in the following format.
    0XX-XXXX-YYYYMMDDHH.format.
    in this HH-hours.I need to take current date and time.so is there any function module to convert into this format.If it is not there how to create file name in this format.
    Thanks,
    MR

    data:  time_stamp TYPE timestampl.
    GET TIME STAMP FIELD time_stamp.
    You can try with GET TIME STAMP
    But it will be in Different format.

  • Date and Time convertion in iChart

    Hi,
    My question is: The date and time field displayed in ichart is in a number format rather than a date and time format. Why?
    1. A query is created first to extract data from an oracle database. The date and time is converted to a string by using to_char(x, ‘yyyy-MM-dd, hh24:mi:ss) function.
    2. An Axcute transaction is then used to convert date and time from the first query to XML date format: As suggested by Martin Auer on Aug 22, 2006 in his answer to Sudha, I create an output document in Business Logic Editor and define a column in DateTime format. The output from xAcute is in XML date format as ‘2006-12-14T13:21:00’.
    3. The second query is created to display data for the Axcute transaction. The output from the second query in Text/xml type is shown as: <TIME>2006-12-14T13:21:00</TIME>
    4. However, when the date and time is displayed in iChart, the date and time on X-axis is presented as a number like 1.166.098.860.000,00. The data source for the chart is shown as: 2006-12-14 13:21:00
    5. The display template is derived from a template used on the training course and date format in template is set to yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss. The template is tested on the data from PlasticResin database (training course), the date and time is presented in a correct format.
    Could someone please answer my question?
    Thanks,
    Xin

    Xin,
    If you test your query (I assume it is an Xacute query) and choose text/xml - what is the SQL data type for the date/time column?
    It sound like the chart is not recognizing the query as a time-sensitive query.
    Let me know what you find,

    Hi,
    The above error appears due to date format is differnt from SAP query generator and SQL server.
    So you need convert all date in above query to SQL server required format.
    Try to convert..let me know if not possible.

    You can search the forums for that error message and find previous discussions - they all boil down to the same problem.  Somewhere in your query that calls this function, the code invoked implicitly converts from string to date/datetime.  In general,
    this works in any version of sql server if the runtime settings are correct for the format of the string data.  The fact that it works in one server and not in another server suggests that the query executes with different settings - and I'll assume for
    the moment that the format of the data involved in this conversion is consistent within the database/resultset and consistent between the 2 servers. 
    I suggest you read Tibor's guide to the datetime datatype (via the link to his site below) first - then go find the actual code that performs this conversion.  It may not be in the function you posted, since that function also executes other functions. 
    You also did not post the query that calls this function, so this function may not, in fact, be the source of the problem at all.

  • Convert XMP Date and Time

    Hi, in my script I am trying to read the Date and Time using the XMP functions of a selected file in bridge.  Then, I want to convert that date and time into a format that looks like: "01/12/10 | 01:23 PM" and write that to another metadata field like the description.  Im stuck on trying to convert the date and time into what I want it to look like?  Can anyone help, thanks!
    Here is the part of the code I'm having trouble with:
    When I read the dateTimeOriginal property of the file, it is in an unfriendly format.  It looks odd and shows the time zone.  The commented lines is code that I have tried, but didn't work.  I was trying to convert the XMPDateTime object into a Date object so I can adjust the format, but I haven't been successful.
    var myXmpFile = new XMPFile( selectedFile.fsName, XMPConst.UNKNOWN, XMPConst.OPEN_FOR_UPDATE);      
          var myXmp = myXmpFile.getXMP();   
          var Name = myXmp.getProperty(XMPConst.NS_EXIF, "DateTimeOriginal");
          var date = new XMPDateTime(new Date(Name));
          var date2 = new Date(date);
          //dateFormat.masks.portfolioDate = 'mm/dd/yy "|" hh:MM TT';
    //date.format("portfolioDate");
    //date2.format("mm/dd/yy");
    alert(date2.toString());
    Name.convertToLocalTime();
    Name.toString();
    alert(Name);

    Thanks for helping me out Paul.  I just have one more small problem.  I am trying to access the Headline XMP property, and I know i need to use the IPTC Core property, but it doesn't seem to work.  Here is my current code, can you help me out?
    var selectedFile = thumb.spec;   
    var myXmpFile = new XMPFile( selectedFile.fsName, XMPConst.UNKNOWN, XMPConst.OPEN_FOR_UPDATE);      
    var myXmp = myXmpFile.getXMP();   
    var xmpString = myXmp.getProperty(XMPConst.NS_EXIF, "DateTimeOriginal").toString();
                alert(xmpString);
    var xmpString2 = myXmp.getProperty(XMPConst.NS_IPTC_CORE, "Headline").toString();
    alert(xmpString2);
    var dat =xmpString.match(/(\d+).(\d+).(\d+).(\d+).(\d+).(\d+)/);
    var amOrPm = "AM";
    var hours = Number(dat[4]);
    if (hours > 11) amOrPm = "PM";
    if (hours > 12) hours = hours - 12;
    if (hours > 11) amOrPm = "PM";
    if (hours < 10) hours = '0' + hours;
    var dateString = dat[2]+"/"+dat[3]+"/"+dat[1].substr (2) +" | "+ hours +':'+dat[5]+ ' ' +amOrPm;

  • "Adjust Date and Time..." will convert your TIFFs to JPGs!!!

    I wanted to let everyone know of a serious bug that I've been discussing in the following thread: [http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1315705&tstart=0].
    Here's the bug. If you use the "Adjust Date and Time..." function on a TIFF file, and have iPhoto modify the original file, iPhoto will make the time adjustment, but it will *save a JPEG over your original TIFF, with the original .TIF name!!!*
    Big nasty bug. After you do this function, you have lost all that lossless TIFF data since your pictures was overwritten by a lossy JPG!
    nathan

    nathan:
    What type of edit were you making. Have been trying to duplicate that and cannot. I've changed the date and selected the original file to be changed also. Then I edited the file by cropping, changing the exposure and shadows and saving. Both versions are still tiff files.
    Now these are tiff files that I converted over from jpgs with Photoshop as my camera doesn't take tiffs. Don't know if that will make any difference.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Convert XML string into an abap format date and time

    Hi,
    Does anyone know of a method or a function module in ABAP which converts XML string into an abap format date and time.
    Here is a part of the xml that I want to convert.
    <ns2:EventDateTime>2009-07-02T10:13:45+10:00</ns2:EventDateTime>
    <ns2:EventMessageTransmissionDateTime>2009-07-02T10:13:45.987+10:00</ns2:EventMessageTransmissionDateTime>
    Currently EventDateTime and EventMessageTransmissionDateTime are type XSDDATETIME_Z and these are converted to proper dates and times. We will be changing these fields to a STRING instead of XSDDATETIME_Z. The reason for this is to make the field more versatile. The customer would be receiving dates with Zulu (2009-09-23T12:00:00Z), with offsets (2009-09-23T12:00:00+10:00/-10:00) and just local timestamp (2009-09-23T12:00:00). With this, we need to make the date fields as string
    to be able to accept the various date formats (esp. the local timestamp).
    I am looking for a standard function module or method that will convert the xml string to a proper date and time abap format.
    Would appreciate anyone's help!
    Thanks.

  • Aperture 3.0.3 Adjust Date and Time

    Working on a batch (~3K) scanned images that all need to be adjusted for date and time, the adjustments and so forth. All notes below is with Master images.
    My observations so far with the unpredictable "Adjust Date and Time" function, "D&T" hereafter and some suggestions on improving Aperture.
    0. Always make sure that you start by "edit->deselect all" - even if nothing is selected.
    APPLE: PLEASE MAKE IT SIMPLER TO SEE WHAT IS SELECTED (MASTERS, VERSIONS, etc).
    1. Always use US language selection - Language selection seems to matter for D&T. I am from Denmark, living in US but often switch between US and DK language (to get some special characters). In Denmark we use dd-mmm-yyyy and in use we use mmm-dd-yyyy. When i use the danish locale with the "D&T" function Aperture D&T is totally unpredictable - so stick with US.
    APPLE: PLEASE DONT BE TOO SMART BUT USE THE D&T FORMAT LISTED IN THE D&T DIALOG BOX
    2. D&T time-shift does not work. Unfortunately this 'capability' cannot be disabled - Somehow Aperture check what the time was originally stamped on the image and use this for the new "D&T" - first i though that this was adjusting ~1 sec between images but it seems that Aperture do something like the following (sorry for my non-applescript'ish examples below)
    newTime = "edit->adjust date and time"
    foreach image do
    set time to image.D&T.time
    try() change image.D&T.time newTime+image.D&T.time
    catch () newTime image.D&T.time
    Not good as it time-shift from the original picture - if the time is good this is not a problem but if time (from the stamp) is off (like all of mine) most likely the time will get the date to wrap into the next day (or year if you got a bunch of images)..
    APPLE: PLEASE ADD AN OPTION TO DISABLE TIME-SHIFT in D&T
    3. Dont include DNG - Aperture cannot change the date for a dng and it seems to screw up the time-shift in "D&T" - i think the algorithm do something like
    newD&T = "edit->adjust date and time"
    for each image do
    set D&T to image.D&T
    try() change image.D&T to newD&T
    catch() newD&T = image.D&T
    The problem seems to be that when Aperture work on a image it cannot change it use this images (that it cannot change) D&T for the next images D&T, i got a bunch (a ton actually) of examples
    1994
    1994
    2008.dng
    2008
    When using a different language locale it gets even worse.
    APPLE: PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE D&T COUNTERS WHEN WORKING ON A FORMAT NOT (WELL) SUPPORTED.
    4. Always check your trash for images - after i deleted projects (empty, no images) i have found images for those projects in the trash. Cannot explain why this is but i am happy that i checked the trash before emptying - put back works just fine.
    I am currently using the following methodology for my scans.
    1. load in all pics, create albums for years and projects for months - e.g. 1993.0201 <text>, 1998.0327 <text> and sort scans to the correct albums and projects
    2. export each album as separate libraries, open library, fix D&Ts, places and faces. Exit, reopen and check trash for images that should not have been deleted. Clean trash, close.
    - For faces i add a few pics' of recognizable folks - open faces and select from the many suggestions aperture offers - very fast.
    3. Open or import library to master (my master got ~20K pics currently)
    I am interested in learning if i am the 'only one' with Aperture D&T 'problems' or if i am using the tool incorrectly.

    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Unable to insert date and time when using date datatype

    Hi
    I am hitting a bit of a problem when using the date datatype. When trying to save a row to the table where the field it throws an error ora 01830 and complains about converting the date format picture ends...etc. Now when I do the insert, I use the to_date function with the format of "dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss". Of course, when I remove the time element, everything is perfect.
    Checking sysdate, I noticed that the time element wasn't be displayed, and I used alter session set nls_date_format to set the date and time I want to save to the table, which worked!
    Then based on advice in a previous thread to permanently fix the problem, I used alter system set nls_date_format ="dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss" scope=spfile; This showed that it was altered, and I can see the setting in the em. In sqlplus, I shutdown the database, and restarted with startup mount; alter database open; and then selecting sysdate, it still shows the date as dd-mon-yy, and still no time! Checking the em, and looking up the nls_date_format the setting is still shown as "dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss".
    So, my question is this - what am I doing wrong? Why can't save date and time using date in Oracle 11g?????
    Thanks

    ThanksYou most certainly can save the time. A DATE column, by definition stores date and time. What you describe is a presentation problem, and setting nls_date_format at the system as an init parm is the weakest of all settings as it is overridden by several other locations.
    without seeing the exact sql that produced the error (not just your description of what you think you were doing) it is impossible to say for sure.
    However, I'd suggest you read http://edstevensdba.wordpress.com/2011/04/07/nls_date_format/

  • DVD camcorder (VIDEO_TS) - preserve clip date and time

    I had asked this question on the forums a long time ago but iMovie did not seem to be supporting it reliably at the time. But since some time has passed, I wanted to check if iMovie '09 can import clips from a mini DVD (those used in camcorders to capture video directly on to DVD media) AND preserve the clip's date and time.
    What I see is that the first clip gets some date and time related to the event's date and time (perhaps the start time of the first clip?) but all the other clips which are imported, get timestamps of 1 second after that first clip's timestamp.
    These are all my home videos and in order to keep each clip short, I have had the habit of pausing after about a minute or two, resulting in MANY clips over MANY DVD's, so manually updating date and time is absolutely the last resort.
    The DVD player can see the clip date and time correctly, and so could the camcorder (I have since sold the darn thing!) so I know that information exists somewhere in the DVD, but it seems like iMovie is unable to "see" it.
    Any help would be appreciated, including programmability hints.

    Thank you for your post.  I figured out why iMovie was assigning today's date to everything that I imported.  It turns out that many of my video files did not have a real "created" date--some had no date at all and some had Wednesday, December, 1967 or 9 (I think).  iMovie defaulted today's date in both of these situations.  I took your advice and ot A Better Finder Attribute and easily converted all of the files using the option to copy the "modified date" into the "created date" attribute.  Now everything imports correctly into iMovie.

    Hi all, is it possible to simulate a "while" loop or a recursion in VC. Obviously VC has no official tools or components for it. So I guess I will need a workaround. But I don't know how. What e.g. I want to achieve is an independent floating progres
