I want to be able to program the system date and time within my eVB program, as opposed to shelling out to settings/clock. I don't care about the interface, just the commands to set the system date/time and what the variable format needs to be in. It seems like a simple task, but I couldn't find any reference to do this. Any ideas?

you an use the Date function, to set the Date:

Date = #12/30/2001"   set the Date to Dec 30, 2001

You can also do this with Now

Now = #12/30/2001 12:00:00PM#

I tried that already thinking it was so obvious, but I get an - Illegal assignment: 'Date' error. What am I doing wrong?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

maybe that was removed as a potentail 'loophole' in eVB.  Worth a shot.

No solution, as I am guessing it can't be done.
