APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Visual FoxPro 3.0 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q102706

SYMPTOMS

If the system clock goes past 12:00 A.M. while FoxPro for Windows is running, the value returned by the SECONDS() function may not be reset properly.

STATUS

Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

The value returned by the SECONDS() function should be the number of seconds that have elapsed since midnight. The SYS(2) function also returns the number of seconds that have elapsed since midnight, but it rounds the value to the nearest second.

Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Start FoxPro for Windows.
  2. In the Command window, issue the following command:

    ? SECONDS()

  3. In the Command window, issue the following command:

    ? SYS(2)

  4. Use the Date/Time icon in the Windows Control Panel to change the system clock to 11:59:00 P.M.
  5. Switch back to FoxPro and wait until the time reaches 12:00 A.M.
  6. Repeat steps 2 and 3.

When the system clock reaches midnight, the value returned by the SYS(2) function is reset to 0, but value returned by the SECONDS() function is not.

NOTE: Both SYS(2) and SECONDS() are reset to 0 at midnight in FoxPro 2.5a for MS-DOS.
