not support variables of a “date” type. Dates are currently recorded in a long
integer as the number of seconds that have elapsed since 1/1/1990 00:00:00.
The DataView II is capable of displaying these values in Gregorian Date
format (i.e. Day, Month, Year etc) in a number of different representations.
Below is an example CR1000 program to record a timestamp for display on a

Please Note: If this value is displayed using ‘Numeric Value’ the DataView II
would show something like this:
