NetWare time stamps may use different formats, and in many NDS time stamps you'll see a LongInt representing the number of seconds since 1-1-1970.

To get this NetWare TimeStamp into VB format, you may simply call the VB function "DateAdd," such as:

vbDate = DateAdd("s", nwTime, "01-01-1970")
vbDateStr = FormatDateTime(DateAdd("s", nwTime, "01-01-1970"))
