Subject Re: Problem with TIMESTAMP field precision
Author alexanderl3
Why not use Trunc instead of Round then?
timestamp_time := Trunc(IBTimeDivider*Abs(Frac(Value)));

The time won't be precise, but in Delphi Now function returns a double -
15-16 digit result. There are still 2-3 meaningless random digits
that can sway Round one way or another.
