Syntax: Get ( CurrentHostTimestamp )
Data type returned: Timestamp
Returns the current timestamp (date and time) according to the host's system clock, to the nearest second.
Get (CurrentHostTimeStamp) returns the date and time from the host machine, regardless of the date and time settings on the client machine. Get (CurrentHostTimestamp) is therefore useful for storing information about when records are created or edited because it disregards differences in time zones or improper settings of the client machines.
Function calls that run on the server may impact a network user's performance, especially when they are used in unstored calculations.
Get ( CurrentHostTimestamp )
Returns 1/1/2004 11:30:01 AM when the system clock on the host machine shows January 1, 2004, 11:30:01 AM.
