Lee, does this mean that CDATE and DATE were purposely changed for 2017 and that they will not be restored to their original definition?


Lee Ambrosius

I can never say never when it comes to this functionality or any functionality being restored, nor can I comment on what might happen in a future release. It is my understanding the change was intentionally made to remove milliseconds from the CDATE and DATE system variables.
