Subject Re: [firebird-support] ISC_TIMESTAMP vs. Current Time
Author Kurt Federspiel
The data type of the field (in the DB) is TIMESTAMP.
That is the issue I'm having that I can't figure

I finally broke down an bought the Firebird Book
(online) and discovered I can CAST the field result to
a CHAR(24), but that does little to help convert the
TIMESTAMP to a struct tm or TDateTime (Borland C++)
data type.
