Get(CurrentTime) Setting Wrong Time

Question asked by user26705 on Jun 22, 2016

I am using the Get(CurrentTime) function in a script and when it executes it returns the time "1/1/0001 12:00AM" - has anyone seen this before?

 

The script is rather straight forward:

 

Set Field [ VisitDetails::DateTimeOut ; VisitDetails::DateTimeOut = Get (CurrentTime) ]

 

The field is of type TimeStamp.  I tried Get(CurrentTimeStamp) and that didn't work either - same value returned

 

I am not sure if I am missing something or if there is a conversion I need to do?

 

As an FYI - I have a field in the layout (same table as the script interacts with) that gets the current time using the "Auto-Enter" option set and that is working correctly.  When I add a new record the correct system time is captured in the field. (this is a different field from the one using the script.)

 

Lastly the script is called by a button - when the visitor checks out - you tap a button and the time should be recorded with date.

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
