The Difference between TimeStamp and DataTime in MS SQL


Last Update: 11/12/2018

MS-SQL internally interprets TIMESTAMP as binary used to process image information. It has nothing to do with OPC timestamps, dates, or time information. SQL_DATE or SQL_DATETIME should always be used to log OPC timestamp information.

Note 1: DataLogger can generate database tables. The DataLogger configuration suggests a set of column names and SQL data types that are compatible with the database being connected. Users are free to override these settings.

Note 2: The DataLogger runtime will detect requests to create SQL_TIMESTAMP columns on MS-SQL. It will then post an Event Log warning and override the column type, substituting SQL_DATETIME.
