GET TIME STAMP

Short Reference



Syntax

GET TIME STAMP FIELD time_stamp.

Effect

This statement creates a POSIX UTC time stamp from the system time and system date in AS ABAP and assigns it to the variable time_stamp.

The following can be specified for time_stamp:

  • An existing variable of the data type TIMESTAMP or TIMESTAMPL from ABAP Dictionary, in accordance with ABAP type p with length 8 or p with length 11, with seven decimal places. Depending on the data type, the time stamp is created either in the short form or in the long form.
  • An inline declaration DATA(var), where a variable of type TIMESTAMP is declared.

Note

The precision of the decimal places of the long form depends on the hardware (processor) of the application server. The maximum resolution of 100 ns is not always reached. On some platforms, only a resolution of milliseconds can be reached.

Example

Creates two time stamps. An existing variable of the type TIMESTAMPL must be used for the long form. An inline declaration can be used for the short form. The time stamps must be given a special format for the output, since otherwise only numbers of type p would be displayed.
