  Sample input:
DateTime_From_TimeStamp ( Get (CurrentTimeStamp )
  Sample output:
2010-04-15 19:59:17

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Given a FileMaker Timestamp this function produces a MySQL DATETIME string. Could probably be streamlined, but it works well.

Kinda misses the point...

getasdate (timestampfield )
getastime (timestampfield )

do the job far simpler...
