Problem with datetime from SQL

Hi all! 

 

I have a problem:

 

I just want to display the datetime value from my mssql table (see image 1+2 attached).

 

1st Question: Is it possible to display the ORIGINAL datetime value from the sql (without any type of conversation)??

 

Other question:

I used the formula to get the correct date for germany:

Text( DateAdd( ThisItem.datumSORTIERUNG; TimeZoneOffset(); Minutes ) ; "[$-de-DE]dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm" )

 

But as you can see the 3rd image attached: 

If you compare the values from the table to the values from the powerapps gallery:

- 1st value is WRONG

- all other values are CORRECT.

 

I really dont understand it.

 

Can you help me?

 

thanks,

jup

I'll start with your second question...

You need to give the TimeZoneOffset the date that you want the offset from, otherwise it will give an offset of the current timezone.

 

Text( 
DateAdd(ThisItem.datumSORTIERUNG; TimeZoneOffset(ThisItem.datumSORTIERUNG); Minutes ); "[$-de-DE]dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm" )

As for your first question, are you talking about getting the date/time in that same format?  The date/time is stored in your data as a datetime value, so it has no format.  That is all governed by your local/regional settings.
