How to convert QlikView Time to Salesforce time in a load script?

Filed under: QlikView — J. Abram barneck @ 3:55 pm

Ok, so here is what I am doing:

  1. I am storing Salesforce data in a QVD file.
  2. I am getting the QVD file date using:
    Let QVDPath='C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QVD';
    Let ThisExecTime = Reloadtime();
    Let LastExecTime = QvdCreateTime('$(QVDPath)\SFCase.qvd');
    
  3. I am trying to only get data modified since load using WHERE LastModifiedDate > $(LastExecTime ).

According to salesforce, the time stamp should be in this format:

1999-01-01T23:01:01Z

See this page for more detailed information and alternate formats:
http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api/Content/sforce_api_calls_soql_select_dateformats.htm

So I created this sub to get Salesforce time from QlikView time:

Sub SFTime(inDateTime)
    Let inDateTime=date(inDateTime, 'YYYY-MM-DD') & 'T' & time(inDateTime, 'HH:MM:SS') & 'Z';
EndSub

It works.
