Kevin,

Using your SQL statement as a base, I believe this should return the proper
UTC offset every time:
WITH ts
AS (
SELECT CHAR(CURRENT TIMESTAMP) AS iso_Zdate_col
FROM sysibm.sysdummy1
)
SELECT LEFT(iso_Zdate_col, 10)
CONCAT 'T' CONCAT REPLACE(SUBSTR(iso_Zdate_col, 12, 8), ':', '.')
CONCAT (CASE WHEN CURRENT timezone < 0 THEN '-' ELSE '+' END)
CONCAT SUBSTR(DIGITS(CURRENT TIMEZONE), 1, 2) CONCAT ':' CONCAT
SUBSTR(DIGITS(CURRENT TIMEZONE), 3, 2)
FROM ts ;

It could be rewritten as a SQL function but, of course, as you correctly
state, the real solution would be for IBM to provide us a proper ISO 8601
timestamp.

Regards,



Luis Rodriguez
