I have stored a date in a collection and looking at the collection i see this long sting.  What does it represent?

That date looks like it is being stored in UNIX time.  For example, if you put this code in the Text property of a label

Text(1588921200000,"[$-en-US]mmmm d, yyyy")

 

The result will be

May 8, 2020

 

 

I only see dates stored in collections like this when the datasource was originally SQL
