Hi Experts,
I'm using the following to get the date and time on my web page:
<%=FormatDateTime(Date,1)%>&nbsp;<%=FormatDateTime(now,3)%>
My problem is that the server is in a different time zone and I need to add one hour to the time displayed on my page.
I'd appreciate your help.

You can do this:

timevar = DateAdd("h",1,Time())

This adds one hour to time.

You can also use javascript to display date and time based on the time zone someone is on.

<script type="text/javascript">
   var dt = new Date('September 13, 2011 10:28 PM UTC');
   var formattedDateTime = dt.toLocaleString();
   document.write(formattedDateTime);
</script>

UTC determines your zone and toLocalString() function displays the date and time based on your time zone.

FInally, check this site out.

You could also try this:

DATEADD(hh,1,getdate())

or

<%
datevar = DATEADD("h",1,Now())
response.write datevar
%>

lots of options
