Maybe the TO_CHAR will be an easier solution:

Hi everyone

And I get this displayed in STRSQl
2020-01-02T12.09.34-05:00

But I have been told this is wrong
It SHOULD be
2020-01-02T12:09:34-05:00

Colons in the time part instead of periods (fullstops for the UK)
No problem - I thought - let me change the time format in my session
attributes
I changed it fo *HMS and the time separator became :
Excellent - thinks I

It makes no difference
The response in my SQL script above remains unchanged
2020-01-02T12.12.47-05:00
STILL periods (fullstops for the UK)

@#&*(^()@! Thinks I

Anyone know what I am missing?

You are correct
I reran my program in debug mode - then I realized I was looking at
HLDDATE BEFORE it became populated - in the SQL I hate Mondays

Works fine for me at 7.3. Just a note - that is the version that assumes
you are in GMT.

**FREE
Dcl-s Hlddate Char(25);

Exec Sql

Hi
Is it possible to embed this into an RPG program?
I tried the following - but HLDDATE remained empty

WITH ts AS (
SELECT CHAR(TIMESTAMP(NOW())) AS iso_Zdate_col
FROM sysibm.sysdummy1
)
SELECT LEFT(iso_Zdate_col, 10) CONCAT 'T' CONCAT
REPLACE(SUBSTR(iso_Zdate_col, 12, 8), ':', '.')

CONCAT '+00:00' into :Hlddate
FROM ts;

I then tried
WITH ts AS (
SELECT CHAR(TIMESTAMP(NOW())) AS iso_Zdate_col
FROM sysibm.sysdummy1
)
SELECT LEFT(iso_Zdate_col, 10) CONCAT 'T' CONCAT
REPLACE(SUBSTR(iso_Zdate_col, 12, 8), ':', '.')

CONCAT '+00:00'
FROM ts into :Hlddate;

But it would not compile

It does. That’s why I said it would be up to you to calculate the offset.
You could do several things. This assumes you are to the left of GMT.

WITH ts AS (
SELECT CHAR(current timestamp - current timezone) AS iso_Zdate_col
FROM sysibm.sysdummy1
)
SELECT LEFT(iso_Zdate_col, 10) CONCAT 'T' CONCAT
REPLACE(SUBSTR(iso_Zdate_col, 12, 8), ':', '.')
CONCAT '+00:00'
FROM ts;

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 '+' CONCAT SUBSTR(DIGITS(CURRENT TIMEZONE), 1, 2)
CONCAT ':' CONCAT
SUBSTR(DIGITS(CURRENT TIMEZONE), 3, 2)
FROM ts;

But to me the real solution is for IBM to implement your RFE.

Chuck was showing several things in that post. I always had to read his
replies several times, but almost always picked up something new. He does
show how to create most of the pieces you are looking for. I will leave it
up to you to determine the offset, but something like this based on his
response.

WITH ts AS (
SELECT CHAR(TIMESTAMP(NOW())) AS iso_Zdate_col
FROM sysibm.sysdummy1
)
SELECT LEFT(iso_Zdate_col, 10) CONCAT 'T' CONCAT
REPLACE(SUBSTR(iso_Zdate_col, 12, 8), ':', '.')
CONCAT '+00:00'
FROM ts;

That will give you something like this: 2019-12-20T11.37.46+00:00

Thanks for the reply Rob
Unfortunately - that thread is going the other way (unless I missed it) -
extracting a time stamp from an ISO-8601 format

Hi everyone
Before I forget - we are on V7r3
I am doing a google search - but the number of responses is HUGE Is there
anything available in RPG or SQL for that matter that can give me the time
stamp ISO-8601 format This is an example of what I am talking about
"2012-04-23T18:25:43.511+00:00"
As always - all replies gratefully accepted
