Don't you really want some version of timestamp with time zone and/or local time zone?

If you have looked around asktom enough and do not see the answer to you question then stick it in near the bottom of an almost relevant question.

Tom will reply more if you have a test case trying to show the specific problem you are experiencing.

Different countries/different regions and even different states within each region may have variations so you are going to have to deal with that somehow. Received on Sun Aug 02 2009 - 18:21:35 CDT
