Strange date returned Link 
7 years ago
Dear Richard,

i have formular in my ASP code as follows
TimeNow = DateAdd("h", 10, Time)

Most of the time, it gives me correct results. But sometimes, it gives me 31/12/1899 07:37:33
How do i make sure, i get only 07:37:33 and not the portion of the date?
Thank you!


Reply from Richard Rost:

That's interesting. I've never run into that before. Looks like you're ending up with a NEGATIVE date value somehow - because date values are actually the number of seconds since Jan 1st, 1900. NORMALLY, with a valid date, you could strip off the date portion by saying:

CurrentTimeOnly = Now()-Date()

That would give you just the hours, minutes, and seconds. However, since you're getting dates before 1/1/1900, you'll have to get creative and break it up into HOUR(), MINUTE(), SECOND() and then use the TIMESERIAL() function to put them back together into a valid TIME datatype.

Strange indeed.
