Based on what I've read of this, I'm guessing that if a timestamp is included as a field in a table & a record is inserted into that table, the value of the field is set to the then current date & time (server time) to the nearest second. I'm guessing that you DO NOT include any "value" for the timestamp field.

Of course I'm assuming I can report that value like a datetime.

Is this correct?
