Description:

Unix bases its time values on the number of seconds since midnight (00:00:00) on 1 January 1970. FMP bases it's time values on the number of seconds since 1/1/1900.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

Timestamp ( Date ( 1 ; 1 ; 1970 ) + _unixTS / 86400 ; Mod ( _unixTS ; 86400 ) )

to convert to FileMaker timestamp (as opposed to date).

"FMP bases it's time values on the number of seconds since 1/1/1900."

should be year 0001 not 1900.

Here's my function that accounts for local time zone offsets:

GetAsTimestamp (
(GetAsNumber (timestamp_unix) )
+ GetAsNumber (Timestamp ("01/01/1970" ; "00:00:00") )
+ GetAsNumber(Get(CurrentTimestamp) )
- Floor( Get (CurrentTimeUTCMilliseconds)/1000 )
)
