Convert from UTC

Ryan Abbey 1,176 Reputation points

Can someone tell me what I've done wrong here, I'm running the below to a "Set variable"

@convertFromUtc('2022-01-23 21:50:01', 'New Zealand Standard Time', 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss')

and getting back the below error

The function 'convertFromUtc' expects its first parameter to be a string that contains a UTC date time. The value was '2022-01-23T21:50:01.0000000'

I'm pretty certain the same was run last week without error so can't see what I may have had different previously

    I am not sure why this did not work for you but to go on the safe side,

    You can try to use the default format for the timestamp which is yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss:fffffffK (complies with ISO 8601 standards). For example in your case: convertFromUtc('2022-01-23T21:50:01','New Zealand Standard Time')

    Or try to use formatDateTime function: convertFromUtc(formatDateTime('2022-01-23 21:50:01', 'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss.fffffffZ'),'New Zealand Standard Time')
