Re: Where does date and time come from?



The client computer, not the server.

http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0039.htm at "The Access Web" shows you how
to read the time from the server.

If I use the Date() or Now() functions in a split database, does the
date/time come from the front-end computer or the back-end computer? Is
there
any way to get the time from the back-end computer since the date/time on
each front-end computer may not be synchronized to be the same? Thanks.
