Hello experts

I have a string that I download from a database which holds a date
1039046400000 (the number of seconds from 1970)
I want to convert this string to a COleDateTime variable
After I do some work on the COleDateTime variable I want to convert it back in to a string ( the number of seconds from 1970 ).


My question is
How do I convert COleDateTime object to and from a string which contains the number of sec since 1970 ?

thank you for your time

1. COleDateTime --> string

COleDateTime::Format()

2. string --> COleDateTime

COleDateTime::ParseDateTime()

To get the COleDateTime, you would say:
time_t seconds = atoi("1039046400000");
COleDateTime date(seconds);

To get it back in that format:
time_t seconds = (date - COleDateTime(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0)).GetTotalSeconds();
Then just do a sprintf or ostringstream or whatever to get that as a string.  Good luck.
