I have an application dealing with air travel, and all times use GMT, or ZULU time.

Is there a way to autopopulate a date and time field to utilze ZULU, or GMT as a default value?

My end goal is to have the member type an entry on a form in the "Item" field, and have the date and time fields autopopulate with the Zulu time and date.

Database will be used from within several time zones, too.

Time and Date are separate fields.

...So implementing default value as zulu time is not possible, since all this is code values.

I don't think you want to Change all Computer times to Zulu

No, I want to have the default value of an access field report as ZULU.

The excel example doesn't show how to do that.

I made a little database to convert times from one time zone to another a while back; it might be helpful here:

The function DateTimeUTC is exactly for this - as listed here:

Time zones in Access: Specifying/displaying/converting

Note please, that GMT and Zulu are "old" names for UTC.
