Re: date time conversion

Hi @beniwal 


To convert the current time zone to UTC, you can try out the below mentioned formula:
MicrosoftTeams-image (186).png


Here Label2 is a label which contains the date time value that needs to be converted. Also, this conversion will be based on current user's time zone.
In case you want to convert est to utc without bothering about the current location. You can directly subtract 5 hours from the date by using:
Text(DateAdd(DateTimeValue(Label2.Text),-5,Hours))MicrosoftTeams-image (187).png

Hope this Helps!

HI @yashag2255 


Thanks for your reply 


I am able to see the UTC DateTime in Text but when I am converting it back to the DateTime value to store in sql server. It is getting converted back according to my system's time zone.
