I must be doing something stupidly dumb here, and I am hoping someone can nudme me in the right direction.
I have an Excel file with a table that includes a date field. In my "edit" form, I am using a DatePicker control wired to the "Date" field in the table. I can input a new record or update an existing one with no problems and the selected date gets into the table correctly. The problem is that when I view the records in a Gallery or otherwise pull the record up later, the date is early by one day.
If I display the date in a text control, it is formatted like this: "2016-05-12T00:00:00Z". The DatePicker control will, in this example, be displaying "5/11/2016". The record in the Excel table is "5/12/2016". I suspect the issue is with a time zone conversion. In fact, if I manually change the record in the Excel table to "5/12/2016 08:30", that record then displays as expected. I am in the US central time zone.
Has anyone encountered this before? If so, did you engineer any kind of "solution"?
I am probably going to whip up a formula to add the hour and minute to the field using Now() and Text(), but would love to hear anyone's thoughts.
Note- recording the time is not really essential for my purposes, but it wouldn't hurt to have it. I am also thinking of adding drop down controls for selecting the time (this is meant to be a mobile app, so trying to avoid a lot of text entry).
