Daylight Saving Time - Storing UTC (GMT)
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will teach you how to deal with Daylight Saving Time calculations by storing UTC (Universal Time Coordinated, or Greenwich Mean Time) in your database.
Paul from New York, NY (a Gold Member) asks: I run a 24-hour restaurant. Tonight, Daylight Saving Time ends and the clocks go back from 2am to 1am. This is going to mess up the time clocks for my employees who start at midnight and work until 8am. How do I adjust my Access database for this aside from manually editing their time cards twice a year?
I'll show you how to use an Internet Time Server to get the current UTC time regardless of what your system clock is set to or where you are located. This also prevents against employees manipulating their system clocks.
