Time zone conversion


I get some information on events and a field has its time as:

17:00 CEST

Unfortunately I need at this time in HE, so I need to convert from UTC + 2 to UTC - 5. I've done to isolate the "05" and subtract the amount of time. BUT my problem is so he can understand if it is AM or PM.

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much



If I understand correctly, then you can try something like this:

The formula in B2:

= LEFT (A, 8)

This removes SSTC and leaves a string of numbers that is able to recognize as a time.

The formula in C2:


The result will be a string date and time, where the cell was formatted in does not show the part of the date.

    What you have given is not a valid time in Europe/London.

    If I'm not wrong, for Day light saving in the specified time zone, DST started on Sunday, March 31, 2013 to 01:00 when local clocks went forward 1 hour.

    If you try another date, the code works. Or if you try any time other than 01:00-01:59:59 - this is going to work...

  • Time zone conversion - it'S time (summer time British) 11 GR 2 IS

  • Time zone in Javascript conversions

    I've gone through some of the previous posts on the issue of time zone conversions, but I was hoping someone could reduce it to someone not as familiar with Javascript.

    My task is to create a form that will calculate hourly pay for a business trip. I have written code to calculate the hours between the hours of departure and arrival. The question that I have is to make the form more user-friendly, I have a drop down menu of all major cities with zones that the user will be able to choose because most of the routes are local time which facilitates travel on difficult zones. I want to write code that automatically set both (internal and not visible to the user) to the hour UTC or GMT, based on the time and the time zone entry, will do the calculations that I created in the script, I've already written and then display the number of hours. As you can see, I plan in my head, but I'm not sure how to put it to 'paper '.

    I only need help with time zones, because I'm over my head, but I don't need someone to write the code for me just if all goes well will explain how can I implement these tools in an existing program that will calculate the hours between the departure and arrival without compensation in time zones. I have a feeling that I will need to use the Olson database and possible GeoNames or Earthtools.

    Olson database







    I'm not sure but maybe if you were to set the offset of the time zone for the items in your drop down list you can then use this value to correct the UTC or GMT or other. Then on the link for your DOF tab, you must set the values under specify point values, so you have, use the boundItem() method to retrieve the offset value.

    It's just off the top of my head, I'm not sure I would try to write something like myself!

  • Time zones

    Okay - I'm pulling my hair out and going nowhere, even after research and reading on this for a few hours. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I need to get the current time in the United Kingdom - with summer time.

    My current code is:

    Zone londonZone = TimeZone.getTimeZone ("Europe/London");
    Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance (londonZone);
    Date DateNow = calendar.getTime ();

    Could someone explain what I appear to be wrong?

    I always seem to come at the wrong time, regardless of the settings of the DST.

    Note that all Blackberry devices, everyone, to this instance (and assuming that the unit's clock is set correctly) will get exactly the same value when they arrive at the present time by using this call:

    long currentTime = System.currentTimeMillis ();

    Time they get is GMT or UTC, UTC, according to me, but there is little difference as I understand it, at least the difference is too small to worry here.

    If the value of type long is still the same.  When they display this value, the display mechanism is usually set by default to the time zone of the device and thus factors in the correct difference from GMT and DST.

    So if you want to display the current time for an another zone hourly, all you do is zone the DateField time zone you want, and it will handle the conversion.

    With this in mind, can you explain your problem again?

    You say you want to get the current time in the United Kingdom.  How to do this will depend on what you will use this value for.

    But here's an inefficient code which may help:

    Zone londonZone = TimeZone.getTimeZone ("Europe/London");
    Calendar LONDON_CALENDAR = Calendar.getInstance (londonZone);
    an = LONDON_CALENDAR.get (Calendar.YEAR);
    month = LONDON_CALENDAR.get (Calendar.MONTH);
    day = LONDON_CALENDAR.get (Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
    hour = LONDON_CALENDAR.get (Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
    minute = LONDON_CALENDAR.get (Calendar.MINUTE);
    s = LONDON_CALENDAR.get (Calendar.SECOND);

    String londonDate = Integer.toString (year) + '-' +.
    Integer.toString (month + 1 + 100) .substring (1,3) + '-' +.
    "Integer.toString (day + 100) .substring (1,3) + ' t ' +.
    Integer.toString (+ 100) .substring (1.3) of the hour + ":" +.
    Integer.toString (minute + 100) .substring (1,3) + ':' +.

  • Date formatting according to UTC time zones

    Using MySQL, php


    Before installing my paintings, I need to better understand the relevance of the datetime property and conversion of this area.

    I am based in th UK (UTC, Greenwich mean time), but my host is in the States, which means that the date of "now" and time is based on US time (UTC?)-

    I did the formatting of the date, for example <? PHP echo date (, d/m/Y ', strtotime ($datetime ['DATETIME']));? > but don't know how to approach the problem compared to all visitor's time zone in the world.

    I have a sniffer script that detects the language of browsers, but I don't see that to be very useful.

    The site requires registration/login so I guess I could have a preference of UTC (UTC + 3 or whatever) in their folder. This could then be used to something like that.

    <? PHP date echo (se, d/m/Y ', strtotime($datetime['DATETIME']+$row_recordsetuser['UTCTIMEZONEPREFERENCE']));? >

    Does make sense?

    I know that the formatting will be a challenge as well because the United States use d/m/Y,

    Or is there a way to format the data of MySQL before its even called?

    You must use date_default_timezone_set() instead:

    I don't know how to take into account this EDT in my conversion.

    Is someone can you please tell me what is the acronym for the time zone in Oracle.

    Select to_date (' Mon Aug 10 10:07:12 2009', 'DY MY DD HH24:MI:SS YYYY') of double / * this will work as it comes without EDT * /.

    Do not use a date but a timestamp with time zone here.

    I think that 'set automatically' refers to the time, not the time zone. Apple devices are quite picky about having the correct time zone for the location, then you will not be able to change it.
