ColeDateTime access to sub-second values

Using OBDC I can record data with timestamps down to 1
millisecond. What is a nice, clean way of creating a timestamp of the format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.SSS from
an COleDateTime object?

Sorry, COleDataTime doesn't support milliseconds.
I can store timestamps with a precision down to 1 second.

Use COleDateTime::Format("%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S") which returns a CString. Take a look at the online help for COleDateTime::Format to see what other formatting options you can use.

This is fine for second resolution. The does not appear to
be a format character for milliseconds.

COleDateTime doesn't support sub-second resolution.  (The documentation is wrong in saying that it does.)

You'll need to use the TIMESTAMP_STRUCT data type if you want subsecond precision. The fraction field in this structure has resolution to a billionth of a second.
