Solved: Access - Closed Date/Time Stamp

Q: Solved: Access - Closed Date/Time Stamp

Ok, here is what I have.

An Access Database that will allow for "Trouble Tickets" to be issued.

The way I have it set up now is a Status. This tells if the Ticket is Open or Resolved.

What I also have is a "Closed Date" Field, what I am trying to do is set it up so that if the Status is changed to Resolved, it will put the "=NOW()" in the Closed Date field.

Any suggestions. Everything seems to work fine, with the exception of this.

Thanx in advance.

I have a JVC Everio GZ-HD10U camcorder that I am recording videos to MicroSD card. Upon transfering the video on my computer via sd card, I am unable to make the date/time stamp show up on the video. I have attempted using Windows Live Movie Make and Pinnacle software (Avid Studio) and have had no luck.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit with 4gb of memory. Has anybody figured out how to get the date/time stamp to show up on the computer?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I never seem to know where to place the IFs. I yoinked the 2nd part of this code from somewhere, then added it to my existing code. It doesn't work, of course.

Option Explicit

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
'When workbook is open, if the date is blank, enter it
If Range("qadate").Value = "" Then Range("qadate").Value = Date + Time

'If the workbook is the "template", do nothing
If ActiveWorkbook.Name = "QA-Hosp" Then

Exit Sub

'If the workbook is NOT the template anymore, username & time/date stamp it

' Stores who and when on Record Sheet, column A

If Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row = 1 And Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Value = "" Then
Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Value = Environ("Username") & " " & Now
Exit Sub
End If

Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Value = Environ("Username") & " " & Now
End If
End Sub

I very much appreciate any help!

Looks like you need to move the End If to the line after the Exit Sub. Otherwise it is effectively exiting before running any further code in any case.

I would also consider changing your code so you are not selecting the Records sheet:
I would declare Records sheet as a variable instead:
Dim Record as worksheet
set Record = sheets("Record")
You can then change these references:

I have the following macro below which works great for when any value is entered in Column C, it time/date stamps the adjacent cell in Column D. However, I need it to do the same thing a few columns over (ie, when any value is entered in Column H, it will time/date stamp the adjacent cell in Column J)

I open Event Viewer - "Admin View" to see what Errors/Warnings are there and in the column - Date and Time only the date is showing. Same goes for all the other views.

Problem solved - but - I don't know why.

Solution:- I changed the Date/Time format from UK to US, opened Event Viewer and it was as it should be. Date & Time showing.

When I take a picture with my Android phone, the date and time when the picture was taken is recorded, in the filename as well as in the JPG picture-file itself; all very convenient. To my horror I noticed that my phone reacts in an idiotic way to the GSM connection being lost: the date of the picture is 'reset' to, apparently, the date the device was manufactured. Subsequent pictures apparently start counting from there. This completely messes up the chronology of my pictures: all pics taken with no GSM connection end up with date/times on the same day, years ago.
I completely fail to understand why this is so and would like to know if this behaviour is particular to my device or if others experienced the same thing. Is it a bug or a feature?
I experimented with various methods to set the time: manual, from GSM-network or from GPS. I would have thought that using manual or GPS would remedy things, but it didn't. (Although it had some effect on Daylight Saving Time issues, but that's another story.)

I have a new computer with Windows 7 on it - and I want to copy the files from my old computer to my new one. I'm looking at copying about 300 GB worth of data.

When I copy all files and insert them onto my new desktop, I notice that all of the date/time stamps are changed to today's date.

Is there a way to preserve the date/time stamp for each file, so that it keeps the original one?


A:Preserving date and time stamp on all files copied?

If you right click the folder, then select properties It should show:

Created: (This will be the date you copied it over)

Modified ( aslong as it hasn't been modified on the new machine, IT should read the date it WAS last modified?

Accessed: It should show when the folder was last accessed (opened)

In regards to "perserving the date/Time Stamp. I'm not sure this is possible.
You can always try checking the Modified Time/date ( mentioned above ) then add the date to the file/folder name. SO you always have a refferance.

I have a program that runs on a XP platform on several computers.
There is one computer that has a weird problem.

The program shows the time and date of the computer, which is the actual time and date.
The program can create bitmap images and text images.
When I click on the export button, the program will save the BMP and TXT files to the Harddrive with a total different date/time stamp.
The program wil export the BMP and TXT files with not only a filename, but also a date/time stamp (the correct one).
It will be exactly one hour and one day earlier.

This is not correct, because the computer has the current date and time, but Windows labels the files with a wrong date/time stamp.

If I open Windows Explorer, I can see the files listed as:

filename200908201250.BMP Bitmap Image 12KB No 302KB 97% 8/19/2009 11:50 PM

It will not impact the problem if I change the BIOS and Windows time.

Did anyone have this effect ever before and can it be a virus ?
The problem is, once in a while, I will loose BMPs and I cannot find them anymore.

A:Time/Date Stamp in XP shows 1 day and 1 hour difference

The problem is not the time difference itself.
The big question is, how is it possible that the program takes the time from Windows, displays it correctly in the program, saves the files with the correct time and date, but shows in Windows Epxlorer to be created on a total different moment ?
The exact same program is installed on many more computers and they don't have this problem.
I have replaced the program, Windows, HDD and the computer motherboard without success.
Could it be a virus causing this ?

I joined this forum for just this one problem...

My line of work requires that I take before and after photos of everything I do or photos to support the bidding of work to be done. The resolution is required to be 640x480 and the compression set to normal. Most of the time I am taking 100+ photos per job site. Sometimes completing 3-4 job sites per day. Past cameras I have used (Nikon CoolPix) allow the Date/Time Stamp to be a part of the image which is also required by my line of work.

I have been frustratingly searching for the instructions on how to get the Date/Time Stamp to be a part of the image when it is taken for the Olympus Stylus Tough 8000.

I understand that this information is recorded with the image and that I could use a program of some sort to add the Date/Time Stamp myself but due to the volume of images a software solution would no be viable.

Is there anyone that has used or can help find the instructions for enabling a Date/Time Stamp for this particular camera?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I apologize for posting to the "general" forum here - even though my issue concerns gmail, it may have something to do with file handling in Windows 7, so I'm shooting for the broader audience in this forum.

How do I save an attached file from my gmail account, such that the date and time stamp, once saved to my local computer, remains the same as that of the original file?

That's how I just always assumed it was being done, and yet with gmail, the files are saved to my local computer with their save date/time, not the date/time of the actual file.

This is just wrong! If I send a file to 15 people, I want each recipient to have a saved file with the same date/time - not 15 different times based on when they saved them.

What am I missing, to force gmail/Windows to preserve the original file date and time stamp?

BTW, I posted this question to a gmail user forum, and the only answer I got so far is unhelpful, and likely wrong, gobbledygook.

A:Saving gmail file attachments without changing their date/time stamp?

At best there might be a universal Date Created or Date Taken on all of the files.

I've tried to send a delayed email using the "Do Not Deliver Before" function. Hoping the email would be date/time stamped when I wanted the recipient to receive the email. For example, sent the email on a Tuesday and scheduled the email to be delivered the next day (Wednesday) at 10am. The function did delay sending the email, but the date/time stamp was when I originally hit sent on Tuesday. What is the purpose of this feature if the date/time stamp will not indicate the date/time I wanted the recipient to receive the email?

When using this function, is there a way for the exchange to track the date/time stamp of the email when it actually leaves the Outbox instead of when you click send? I understand the exchange keeps track of the date/time stamp of when an email is sent, but why couldn't the exchange keep track of when the email leaves the outbox when using this function? Is there any exchange setup that will make this function work the way it is supposed to? Thank you

I have a table with a Date/Time field called Date Created, it is in the General Date format, and it is a time stamp (EX: 12/3/2004 3:00 AM). I know that if you have a date field that is formatted as a Short Date you can easily pull records in a query based off of a current date (EX: Date() as the criteria). I have tried using the Date() criteria as a parameter for a query, but I am unable to pull the current date's records. The query will work if I test the "Between #12/1/2004# and #12/4/2004#" parameter range, but I would like to be able to pull records for the current date without having to change the date range or even the date field to a short date in the main table. I've even tried converting the date within a query to display the date as a short date, by adjusting the field properties in the query, but the Date() criteria still doesn't work. Is there any other type of syntax that I could use within the query to make this work? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

On a Access form, I'd like to have a control that identifies how long the database has been in operation.
I'd like to be able to say that today is so many years, months & days since a specified date. Better yet, would be to include hours and minutes, or hours to 2 dps.

At present I can only count days, using:
=Date()-#13/02/99#+1 & " days"

I know I can use the DateDiff function as an alternative, and then I can specify the interval, e.g. I could specify hours as the interval and it would return the number of hours that have passed since that date.
But is there a way to specify multiple intervals?
I want it to return:

2 years, 1 month & 6 days

but certainly not:

2 years, 25 months & 761 days

which I imagine it would, if I entered all arguments into a single text box, using yyyy,mm,dd.

Someone on the Access Programmers site said that I should use DateDiff and then compute what I want from that result.

Does this mean I need to do separate controls for each interval?
And how would I 'compute' them?

I have a field that is date/time, formatted to display the long date (which starts with the day of the week). This has been extremely useful for some append, update and delete queries.

However, I would like to be able to do an update query based on the day of the week for each record. I know that the date/time field is stored as a number so I can't search for any string of letters. But, is there a way to take the long date format and copy what's there as a string so I can then extract the day of the week out of it? Otherwise, I guess I'm stuck with adding a separate field for day of the week, and manually inputting it. Seems like such a waste.

Hi there,
I have an MS Access database (2000, but primarily operating on PC with Access 2010). The database logs wagons coming to and from our site. Mostly, these wagons are in and out in the same day, but it is possible for them to park up overnight, for which we charge a small fee.

Currently, the following fields appear in the main table (called Stays):

Arrival Date

There is also a field called Duration, which (for some reason) is autofilled by an Update Query, with the Update To value set to:

This is clearly inaccurate - it assumes that if a wagon's exit time is earlier in the day than its arrival time, then it must have stayed for 1440 minutes + the (negative) difference between the two times, and if the exit time is later or equal to the arrival time, the wagons has been in and out of site in the same day.

As wagons could be on site for multiple days (so the 1440 mins figure could be wrong) and could leave x amount of days plus x amount of minutes after arriving (so the assumption that it's exited the same day as it arrived could be wrong),... Read more

Hello and thank you for your time and help!

On my friend's computer, I am having the exact same problem as described in this post:

Time Stamp Wrong

The last reply says:

It is obvious that your ISP is messing around with time stamps. In that case, I guess you can't do much. It doesn't matter whether you use dial-up or cable.

All that you can do it call up your ISP customer care and try to confirm that they actually are doing this.Click to expand...

I have contacted the ISP and they assure me that it is not the case. They have proven it to me by sending me a test email from them to me and that email has all the correct times on it. However, when I send a test email from [email protected] to [email protected] the time difference is exactly 3 hours behind when I receive my own email back.

I asked to speak to a supervisor and he assured me that the problem is within the settings of Outlook Express - for which they don't give support. I believe him as my test email and his test email prove that the times are not being changed on their servers.

The actual clock on the computer is perfect.

How do I change the time settings within Outlook Express so that the incoming emails will have the proper time stamp please?

My friend is using Outlook Express 5.0 and his computer is older - an e-machine - so we do not wish to update the Outlook Express.

A family member took many great pictures while on vacation but used the date stamp mode. I noticed in XP the date stamp does not appear on the icon when set to thumbnail view. However, it does appear in Windows 2000 thumbnails. Somehow the JPG holds more than one layer of info, but I've been unable to find them with Paint Shop Pro 7. The camera is a Sony Mavica CD-2000 and the picture format is jpg. I checked the archives and looked on the Net for information but have come up empty handed.

Hello. Here is my issue short and sweet.

When I use ANY of the web based emails (Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast) on computer A, all of my emails are stamped an hour earlier than real time. By real time, I mean the clock on the computer AND the analog tick-tock clock on my kitchen wall. Both display the correct time accurately.

When I use ANY of the web based emails (Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast) on computer B (or C or D), all of my emails are stamped with real/correct time that matches my kitchen and computer. These computers ALSO reflect correct time.

With either computer, any file created or saved has a date and time stamp that is correct and reflects real time. Whether saved with a web app, a windows app or a cmd line app.

On all computers my time zone is set correctly. The "adjust for DST" box is checked. I also ran TZEDIT to confirm that my DST dates are correct.

One revelation (and I believe herein lies the key). If I look on computer A at the bottom of the "Date and Time Properties box: the current time zone says : Eastern *STANDARD* time. If I look at computers B, C or D. The "Date and Time Properties box says: current time zone: Eastern *DAYLIGHT* time. I can not find any way to change the "STANDARD" to "DAYLIGHT".

10 - 20% of incoming emails get a WRONG Received date stamp in the navigation pane. On 15 Dec 2012 some emails got '25/01/2000', on 16 Dec 2012 some were stamped 26/01/2000 and a few hours later in the day '27/01/2000'. The emails originate from different senders including one from management software in this computer. That software sent me 5 emails at much the same time, four of which were stamped correctly but one '27/01/2000'.

Most emails are date/time stamped correctly but those stamped wrongly end up right at the bottom of the chronological list in the Navigation pane because of the old date. They are easily unnoticed.

The 'sent' date/time stamp in the email header always seems correct.

Last week in a database I was developing I had 2 Date/Time fields set with General Date format. It was working perfectly last week where I would type in 10/24 12a and it would expand it out to 10/24/2007 12:00 AM for me.

Fast forward to today and it is now only recording the Date and not the time. I have changed nothing and on a rare occasion can get it to recognize the date and time in the datasheet view but never from the form.
Anyone else ever witness this and know the fix?



Edit: Well I found what I believe is the issue.

If I type 10/26 11p it will convert to 10/26/2007 11:00 PM so the user can short hand the entry.
If I type 10/26 12a it will only show the date. So 1 minute around the entire clock will error.

I run a query for a quarterly report that has 8 fields, 2 of which are dates. The dates have to be in the mm/dd/yyyy format. When I run the query everything displays correctly. when I save the data to a table everything displays correctly. However, when I export it to a comma delimited txt file, the time also displays: mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00. I checked the formatting for the 2 date fields, and they are both the 'Short Date' format with an Input Mask of 99/99/9999;0;" ". I also tried using other placeholders, which didn't work.

I can get rid of the 00:00:00 if I export it as a tab deliminated file, but then I lose the commas, which are a requirement. The report has to be a .txt file, with strings wrapped in quotation marks, dates (no time) in the mm/dd/yyyy format, and fields separated by commas with no spaces in between.

Are there any other places I should try to change the format, or tricks to make sure the date and only the date print? Or is it an Access glitch and I need to do a re-install? Thanks for any help.

2) if you delete that mentioned registry key, then the indexing of .eml files no longer works, i.e. you cannot find them in a full-text search. However, backup works now.

Hi all,

This is probably a serious newbie question, but I found myself banging my head against the wall last night and still couldn't figure it out. It concerns the Date/Time datatype. I've been developing a media database and I've included a field of this datatype to hold the Year that my books are published. However, all I want is the year. I don't want the day or the month. But this datatype requires that I punch in the day and month as well. I don't want to do that. I just want to punch in the year. How do I alter what's required in the field?

FYI, I did figure out how to make it display only the year using Format, but I still have to put in the day and month. . .

Many thanks in advance. I'm sure the answer is right in front of my face and I'm just not seeing it.

A:Access 2002 Date/Time datatype question

It seems straight forward...just make a 4 digit field for year forget about the date/time data type, just use "Number or text type".

if you stick with the Date/Time datatype you can use the "Year" function in an expression to extract the year from the date field.

I would like for my Access 2007 database to automatically record the date/time when the data in a SPECIFIC field is modified (not when any data in the record changes).

Here is a simplified explanation of my scenario. This database keeps track of cases in my office. A data entry form named "Cases" feeds a table named "Cases." The form includes text boxes that correspond to the fields in the table. Three of these are: "Case_Notes," "Case_Status," and "Date_Status_Change."

I would like for the "Date_Status_Change" field to automatically reflect the current date/time whenever the data in the "Case_Status" field changes. I do not want the date/time to change when information in the "Case_Notes" field is modified.

What code would accomplish this?

The following code will enter the date/time for a change anywhere in the record:

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Me![Date_Status_Change].Value = Now()
End Sub

But I want to limit it so that it dates changes ONLY in the ?Case_Status? field.

Is this time obtained from the sender's computer at the time it was sent (in which case it could be incorrect if the time on the computer is incorrect)?

Since there are two actual times that are unique for each single piece of email, time sent and time received, and they can not possibly be the same.

Is the time that an email leaves your PC, . . which is the time born on the email record in the sent file, . . the same time it bears when received by the recipient ?

A:Time Stamp on Email ?

Depends on a lot of things. First and foremost the way the sender and recipient mail servers are set up. Do they use UTC time or do they use local time? If you have that information then you can calculate time differences.

Other factors play into it such as when you send does your mail server have a malware scan queue so there is a delay? Is the mail sever set up to send in bulk at specific intervals. Like wise on the receiving end.

As I said many things can come into play when you hit the send button and dispatch your email to the ether.

I have called Samsung's tech support many times for various problems and their universal solution for every problem is to reset the unit to factory defaults before working on any problem. I've been through that so many times that my frustration with their tech support has now turned to anger. The re-setup of all my users and other customizations after their lame tech support costs me hours of work afterward.

So, here's my problem: I want to use the DVR's synchronization with an internet time server; but I can't find the correct settings. When the DVR's console displays the correct time, the time stamp on alert e-mails is several hours off. If I adjust the GMT, so that e-mail alerts have the correct time stamp, the time displayed on the DVR's displayed time is several hours off.

I'm in the CDT zone (USA) and I use a mail server ( [email protected] )

Can anyone help me with this?

I create many new temporary folders every day. I am looking for a quick way to paste a time/date stamp for each new folder name. Wondering if there is a way I can link the time stamp to a windows hot key and use a paste rule?

Don't want to use excel/word/cmd prompt and copy paste over to slow.

Google turned up useless so I knew I could turn here for some assistance!

Thank you.

A:Place Time Stamp as a folder name

You can use the %date% and %time% environment variables in a DOS prompt.

Based on this, you could edit the registry to place an Explorer context menu shortcut to a command that creates a new folder in the current directory, along the lines of mkdir "Temp created on %date% at %time%".

Unfortunately this won't be of much help - I just realized the date includes slashes "/" and the time uses colons ":", both of which are invalid characters in a file/folder name.

I have a system image created today at 9:58am according to Windows Explorer. When I boot the Repair Disk and select that image, it shows the time as 6:59am --3 hrs earlier.

I checked my BIOS and it shows the correct time.

Anyone have any idea why this difference?

Thank you.

When you used the boot (rescue) disk, were you prompted to enter your timezone at one point after Windows booted up?

I suspect this may simply be a matter of setting the correct timezone when the disc-based Windows prompts you for it.

Receive an email at 5:24 PM (outlook express verifies time on my computer)

(from the header)
Received: from ( [])
Received: from 236MM ( [])
by (Postfix) with ESMTP id ED17545F
for <[email protected]>; Fri, 13 Apr 2007 17:24:27 -0400 (EDT)

My clock is correct, senders clock is correct ... I go to forward the message at 5:24.
See below the time sent: 1 hour ahead (6:24)

Where is this time coming from, headers and clocks are all OK ... I'm stumped,
and it appears to be causing a spooling backlog on certain mail servers.

Any suggestions or thoughts, as to why this is happening?

1. Check to see if you are in the correct time zone; not only if your clock says the right time. (same area as you would go to change the time)
2. Check through the settings of Outlook Express to see if there is a place you can change the time zone.

Since version 7 Internet Explorer changes the "modified" time stamp of a *.url (favorites / bookmark) file when used. It changes it to the current date, so that you can see when you last used the link.

I want to disable this function because it interferes with my file synchronisation program. My synchronisation program sees it as if the url was changed, which is awkward as it isn't changed, only the modified attribute is updated.

Can this be done?

Find your Favorites and click on the top folder and set the "Read Only" attribute for all files and sub folders.

My computer clock says one time and my Outlook received mail says another....about three hours earlier. I sent myself a test mail at 7pm and it read that it was sent at 3 pm.

Please advise!

Check ALL of your settings.

Check your location and time zone in Control Panel - Regional Settings. That on the assumption you are running Windows.

Hi All,

Man its been long since i asked a question but ever since i ran into this problem i remembered you guys, as you have helped me out before! i think to give a title to this problem would be "Automating of pressing keys for timestamp on a cell"

Ok here is the problem i am facing ............
I have to record so many stock trades in realtime when client makes a call etc. As this timestamp would be neat for feedback to tell the client when the trade was made and helps me remember when i executed the persons trade. On my spreadsheet i have a buy, sell , quantity, price, account number and time of execution column.

First off i know the ctrl+ shift+ : [and now() ] function to get the timestamp on a cell. Now what i cant figure out is a way to get the current timestamp in cells multiple times while making trade orders without having to press those keys all the time!!!

How can i quickly get the current time stamp of a trade executed without having to use/press the ctrl +shift +: command function???, if i get that formula/macro i can do a copy paste function on the remaining of the column so i dont have to do it all the time and just focus on entring the buy and sell details of the trade. I dont have too much time to stickon one entry as i have to move on to the next trade! plus if i continue doing this as is, i'll have carpaltunnel syndrome in a week !!!

Hope this makes any sense? please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S.....Someone showed me this but made no sense on how to use it or if its any good to me.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Range("A" & Target.Row) = Now()
End Sub
'Specify AClick to expand...

This is an event procedure. It goes in the worksheet module. Rightclick the sheet tab & select View Code to get to the worksheet module ; you would paste it in there.

When you make a change, it timestamps in col A of the row you're changing. So:

(a) you need to specify which column should be timestamped (if not A)

(b) it will update if you make subsequent changes anywhere, which you may not want.

Here's one that'll stamp in A when you first enter in D ; it'll also blank A if you blank D. It's a question of how you want it to work.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Column <> 4 Then Exit Sub
If Target = "" Then
Target.Offset(0, -3) = ""
ElseIf Target.Offset(0, -3) = "" Then
Target.Offset(0, -3) = Now()
End If
End Sub

A user of mine is running Outlook Express on WinXP.

He accidentally set his time to the correct date, but in 2008, ie. one year ahead.

He quickly fixed the issue by setting the date back to 2007, but still all the received mails are stamped as if they were received in 2008.

Is there any way to revert this to a correct state?

I am positive this wouldn't be possible in Explorer (XP) or (Win 7), so I'm wondering what utility would be possible, or would it need to be a specially written program?

I didn't change the clock on my camera and want to change the timestamp on my photos to add 6 (or 7) hours to batches of photos.

Thank you.
