Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This note discussed implicit time conversion related to datetime items in 12c Forms.

Unexpected values for 12c Forms datetime items can occur because the environment variables FORMS_DATETIME_SERVER_TZ defaults to GMT and FORMS_DATETIME_LOCAL_TZ defaults to the time zone of the end user.

This note explains what these values mean and how to use them to reflect the desired time reference in Forms datetime items.
