Description

The TTOC() function converts the datetime expression <expT> to a string value. By default, the date part of the string returned will conform to the current SET DATE, SET MARK and SET CENTURY settings, in the same format as DTOC(). The time will be returned in the format hh:mm:ss AM | PM. If the expression to be converted contains no time information, 12:00:00 AM will be assumed. If SET SECONDS is OFF (ON by default), no seconds will be displayed. The SET HOURS set command determines whether hours are shown in 24 hour format or in 12 hour format with AM | PM postfix.

<expN> The optional <expN> can be used to specify the format of the return value:

<expN> Format
0 As defaults
1 YYYYMMDDhhmmss
2 Time only: hh:mm:ss AM | PM (SET SECONDS ON) or hh:mm AM | PM (SET SECONDS OFF)
3 YYYYMMDD hh:mm:ss
4 YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:sssZ
